Gotcha, that's good about the ammonia. So it doesn't have any surfactants in it? Does it give ingredients at all? (And I also apologize for all the questions lol I'm excited for you!)
That's great that you are cycling it though! I wish I had done it properly before putting my Betta's in but I also didn't exactly know too much back then but everyone's pretty happy now though which is good.
So you can look in a few different places, Ebay actually sells some on there and they are usually already in America so you don't have to pay extra fees. If you go on AquaBid most of the fish are over in Thailand so you have to win the bid and I believe what happens is that it is shipped to the Tran-shipper and then there is an additional fee to get it to you but if it's a fish you REALLY want, I would say it's worth it to pay more!
I've never used it, but I know on ThatPetPlace.com and LiveAquaria.com you can message them to see if they have a particular Betta that you might want, but again I haven't done that so I don't know what they have in stock and stuff like that but they're pretty cheap so I would give it a try if all else fails.
And yeah, I love the big ruffly tails too! My halfmoon plakat (HMPK) has a rose tail which is just a halfmoon with too many branches which creates a rose look. He's in my photo album on here actually if you wanted to look at him.
And I'm a sucker for HM's in general (just look at my Avatar, that's Rembrandt) but surprisingly I only have one HM. They have a tendancy to "blow" out their fins, they get little holes from flaring too hard and they split their fins sometimes too. So it can be a bit difficult at times but he's totally worth it!
