Where do I buy quality betta fish?

I'm looking for a betta fish pair :) I was wondering if any of you could help me. To be even more exact a starter kit..........

If not then.........where do I buy a quality
betta pair?

Looking for:

1-2 Betta fish pairs

2+ Indian Almond Leaves

Two 2gallon fish tanks

Microworm Culture

Spare Fish supplies


*I am interested in HMs',CTs' & HMPKs'*
* Willing to spend up to $80 including shipping for the right offer*


So if any of you have these things or perhaps all these things you are willing to sell shoot me a PM or post here.

If anything, you'd have to check on aquabid, if a user on here lacks a pair. However it will be more expensive if only for shipping - or even just the fish themselves.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

I love ebay for IALs!!! You can get good grade A leaves, which are more expensive and usually not in bulk than the mixed lots of leaves. I choose either or, as long as they are dry, not moldy and preferably weather dried not hand picked and dried.

Ebay has bettas listed but I am not sure of their quality.

for IAL - i would get them from Amy off ebay. She has several catagories of them and I usually get the C grade leaves which means they are not as perfect as the A or B grade but they are still pretty huge leaves but may have some holes or whatnot in them.

Here is one of her auctions - FREE shipping

for tanks try Craigslist or 2nd hand stores for the best deals. Ebay and amazon but then you have to pay shipping which can be $$$$
