LOL, well as far as I can find theres just Petco, Petsmart, and Petland....none of them all that great, but I can't find any Mom&Pop stores around here that carry fish(I think theres a bird-specialty one but thats about it).
Where I used to live in Washington there was just a nice local pet store where I worked, I did manage to breed a little then and they took most of my fish. It was really kind of neat, telling customers what fish I'd bred and giving them proper advice on how to care of them and watching them go home to good homes.
No such luck here though, lol.

I've never heard of Petland, is that a chainstore or a small business? I guess I'm just lucky to have two good pet stores near me. :)
Ultimately I'd like to have my own pet store. I'd hire someone to manage it so that way, I'd still have time for breeding. And I'll probably try to get everyone who buys one of my bettas to make an account on here, just so I can see my bettas grow up (as well as my tarantulas and millipedes but theres a different site I'll recommend for the new owners of those guys). Ahh, thats the dream.. *smiles and stares off into space* haha.

THIS IS IMPORTANT!!:
If you buy abused bettas from stores to help them, please read the following.
If the store made profit, then it was NOT a rescue. I know you're only trying to help, but you're hurting the cause. If you care, please click the link below and learn the truth.
Please use the same, or a similar signature to support the cause!
Here is a good example of what you could do instead: http://www.bettafish.com/129-betta-chat/110770-he-will-have-die-here.html

I think its sort of like a small chain....? I've heard of Petland in other places, but its a smaller, more of a tiny local pet shop feel. I don't know about all Petlands, but the one here really focuses on puppies and kittens. Its cute and clean, but their betta and fish stock in general is very sparse and no one is ever back by the little fish wall. Their live insect foods(for lizards and whatnot)aren't very good either, so I don't really go in there.
Ahhh, you and me both!! I remember back in school for my Marketing class I had to create a whole fake business.....I made a Fish-centric pet store called 'Poseidon's Palace'. Ah, if only.....

Rosetails! They're so beautiful.

But...I think DBT HMPKs are really cute too. Or any kind of DBT...I really want one.

Too bad I can't pick more than one! I love rosetails, but I seem to gravitate to crowntails. I dunno why, but their pretty fins just seem to draw my attention every time I go to look at the bettas in the stores!
