Yeah, I've owned many crowntail bettas. The first batch I managed to breed had a female crowntail. Most of the babies are showing signs of being crowntail themselves. I have a beautiful male right now, he's a very dark black with red in his tails which is streaked with silver. An absolutely stunning boy.

Yup, I've seen those. They actually aren't really that new.

I've never had one before...I prefer half moons . And of course I love my petstore veiltail mutts .

Crowntail bettas are supposed to be very sensitive and have slightly shorter lifespans then veiltails.

They aren't very sensative. Maybe a shorter life span, but not noticable if you're buying petstore vailstails which you get in a much more advanced age anyway.

Oh my they are pretty! Just look at those fins!!! I just have the normal beta and mine is female. She's quite a character though so I wouldn't trade her in for anything.

Hmmm...well they are new here! I have never seen them here in Newfoundland until recently...but then again Newfoundland is rather small and always gets things last!

Speaking of new bettas, has anyone heard of the giant betta? Grows to a foot long. A petstore near me sold those, but they were babies and the same size as regular bettas. Or maybe it was just a scam? Anyone have one?

They do indeed exist and are very interesting fish. I want one badly .

They don't get to be a foot long, though . Giants have to be at least three inches long...not including the tail. Usually they're more like four inches, though.
