I think that if I ever get a Betta for myself, it'll be a Plakat that's a *bit* closer to wild-type than all of these 'princess' fish I see everywhere. But I dunno - I don't think I would have been able to resist that snow white one if I had seen him in the shop, either! What a beauty!
The Betta was simply labelled as a Half-moon. My wifes friend said it looks almost like a Rosetail. LoL where do they get those name from?? I have never even heard of a Rosetail till last night and now. In all honesty i wouldn't even have gotten him if he wasnt all white. Ohh i think you right about Bettas being the Barbies of the fish world.
Ohh some of the wild bettas look awesome!! I know Segrest Farms has some pic Betta that are wild caught/ or who look closer to being wild bettas then the ones in the store. I look on their website often as my LFS orders from them. So I look to see what they have to offer. The is my favorite Betta ever!!
If I ever found on in the store I would buy with out ever giving it a second though. They had one close in the store the other day but it wasn't it. I looked at it for like 10 mins. The white half-moon comes in second.
