What Is Your Dream Betta?

    My dream betta has always been koi halfmoon plakats ever since I was shown a picture of one. I finally gave in and purchased two males and they'll be here next week. I can't wait! I wouldn't mind having a mustard gas halfmoon plakat one day as well. I love their colourations.

    What would you consider your dream betta? Is there a specific type of betta that you prefer to avoid? Do you have a preference between males and females?

    I love normal veil tail males. I also love round tail and double tail males as long as they aren't SUPER aggressive. THe crown tails are by far my least favorite

    I love white betas and pastel bettas. I also love black and white bettas. My favourite tail type are spade tails but I also like plakats. I don't like rosetails or any other bettas with really large fins because they are inhumane IMO. I don't like crowntails because I would always worry that they had ripped their tail and I hadn't noticed or had finrot.

    Here is my favourite betta ever

    My dream betta beta is the most peaceful betta that won't fight or chase other fish and he is also absolutely gorgeous.

    In general, my dream bettas would be pretty ones that would breed for me.

    Looks wise, I have my dream betta. :)

    My dream bettas are black and white HMPK or HM. I plan on breeding some in the near future.

    I'd really love an opaque white rosetail dumbo. I'm sure I could source one on the internet and the pricing wouldn't be an issue, I'm just debating if I want to try and keep a betta with that amount of finnage healthy or not.

    I've actually never seen a black and white HMPK in person. I'm sure they're lovely. By the way, the fish in your avatar is seriously the cutest. He's very unique.

    My dream betta would be a giant dragon scaled betta. I plan on breeding something like this later this year/early next year.

    My dream betta? One that doesn't freak out my extreme case of colorblindness. I like bettas and have owned many, but they make my eyes freak out. I owned a red betta for a few years and thought he was grey until the day he died. Then my sister looked at me, and she was like 'the fish is red, moron.'

    I've had a few, they're definitely some of the best looking fish I've owned.
    Thank you! That was Moo, he started out as black and white and slowly changed to that. I can't post the sellers picture, but here's him when he arrived vs two months later.

    He was hands down my favorite fish I've ever owned, he died of dropsy a few months ago.

    That names suits him perfectly.

    I'm sorry that you lost him. Dropsy is horrible for both the fish and the fish owner to go through.

    My dream betta is a fish that can do it own water change and also able to cook for me.
