Tonight I watched a YouTube clip that presented 15 different breeds of Betta fish. I happen to have two of the 'common Betta' fish from Walmart. What breeds do other people have and where did you purchase them?

Thank you,

Lonnie

Different genetic breeds of Betta Fish. Such as the Yellow Betta, Crown Tail , Mustard Gas Betta. Those are the ones I remember from the video. I will look up betta splendens up on the internet. Thank you for responding.

A Female Red Veiltail:

A Female Marble Halfmoon:

I used think that she's a plakat but now that she's older she's really halfmoon since her fins had gotten longer.

A Male Royal Blue Double Tail - He passed away two months ago...

All are domestic betta splendens.

I have a veiltail (first picture) and a butterfly halfmoon (second picture)

This is the only picture I have that really shows his color. The picture is really old though, his fins are much longer now. When I got him he only had the blue part of his fins (not because he was young, probably because he got bad finrot) so it's still growing.

The picture is awesome! I have heard of some Bettas being over a $100.00. That is what I thought of when I saw your picture. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you. I assure you he's not one of those bettas. Lol. He was around $10 at PetSmart. I bet a $100 betta is beautiful though.

I wish I knew. When I got Boris, he was all white with eaten-up fins and tail. I've had him three weeks now. His fins and tail are growing in nicely; he looks different every day. I can't identify him, though. In color, his body remains white, while his fins and tail are the color of burnt charcoal which flash a weak iridescent green. Any ideas?

(I'm finishing his tank this weekend. Black substrate; thin out and distribute the plants; put on a black backing. I'm open to suggestions, too. (Five gallons))

I don’t know if there are really any “breeds” of bettas. Only tail shapes and colors. Tail shapes can be halfmoon, crowntail, delta, veiltail, spade, plakat, crowntail plakat, and halfmoon plakat. And then any color you can imagine.

This is a pic of my white halfmoon from a while ago. He’s bit off most of his tail by now, but at least he swims a lot easier.

I have a Dumbo half-moon. I can't take very good pictures of him yet. Working on it. But he has layers of dark steely blue and mid/light blue. His fins are lighter than his body; milky white with some hints of pale purple and blue.

I used to have what looked like almost a full moon Betta even though he was sold as a Twin Tail Halfmoon (See profile picture). Sadly a mysterious illness took all the beautiful color and finnage from him and he died after six months. I'll always remember my first fish, my special boy Scuba.

My current fish Azzie who I've had for eight months is a Veiltail, but she's a female so she doesn't have very long fins. She's still gorgeous though!

Mine is a Halfmoon with a dark purplish body and scarlet red fins. The fins, especially the tail, have black edging. He also has some iridescent blue highlights in his fins and on the top of his body. He's in the profile pic. Name is Benny.

I've kept too many betta splended morphs to remember them all, probably at least 30. However, the wild species i've kept are albimarginata, macrostoma, imbellis, gladiator, smargadina, and brownorum. Albimarginata are still my favorites.
