Anyway, as for a purple and red betta- there are members here who regularly sell bettas from their own spawns. Shipping is a lot cheaper in USA but the price depends on the buyer, if you want to pay for the fish + shipping. I think the color variation you're looking for is called Salamander (google search salamander betta)
Nope I've never heard of Tim Hortons lol.
I looked up salamander betta, and that is the exact coloring I am/was looking for!
I actually picked my little guy up at Petsmart today. :)

I have ALWAYS wanted to visit a Tim Hortons! I know that sounds stupid, but it's on my bucket list! I'm pretty far away from Canada... Most people around here have probably never heard of it lol

Did you find a salamander betta?
Tim Hortons is so commonplace around here it's not that special. I love their donuts/timbits but their coffee is more of a laxative to me. It's brewed every twenty minutes but they brew it at a high temp which ruins the bean.
Everything bagel toasted with herb and garlic cream cheese, double double and a donut is usually my order there. Dbl/dbl is just double cream and sugar. It's the only way you can drink their lax coffee. lol

I think I heard somewhere that the locations in the States are called cafe's or something fancy. It's far from fancy but its cheap and accessible.

Starbucks is taking over lol
I like their drinks but moderately because I find them too rich and therefore hard to drink. I got ill off a dark roast there. Their fair trade stuff is good and I like that they support fair trade. Tim Hortons has not got on board with FT yet, despite activism.

Is there a thread for him? I would love to see pics of Amethyst (was that the correct spelling?)

ETA- Amephyre .. even better!
