Black betta at petco

Hey guys!

So I decided to go to my petco while I'm home for this weekend to look at the females. While searching around I noticed this beautiful dark betta. He was like a black and dark blue (or gray). I thought he was absolutely gorgeous AND I was wondering if anyone would be interesting in adopting him? I would love to but I am looking to adopt females so I can rescue more at once. I tried to go to the adoption page but I haven't posted enough yet to have access and I guess technically I am not selling him since I haven't bought him. I'm in South Carolina but I'll be going back to Georgia tomorrow. I'm at the moment 45 minutes away from Greenville SC and when I go back to school I'll be an hour from atlanta. If someone wanted him I'd just want the money of what I paid for him but I will not ship.

And just to say I also just wanted to share how beautiful he was on here :) I am not trying to sell him but I thought if someone was interested it would be nice for him to go to an awesome home! I know the rules but I just wanted to see if I could find him a home






Here's an elephant ear as well that is absolutely beautiful! I just want to find all these bettas homes so there are a million more there if anyone is willing!


My dream is to educate the world about animals and show them that they are just as important as us

20 gallon long with 2 new boys (divided)
10 gallon with Ariel

D: I wish you did know how to ship, I would split my ten gallon until I could get him his own tank. I hope whoever gets him will be good to that boy, orchids are such lovely fish.

Yeah I wish I knew how to as well! I'm just so worried about hurting them or having them pass away because they're not handled properly :(

If you know of anyone near me who would want him I would gladly drive to meet them :)

I wish you could ship! I'd be willing to take atleast the EE in a heartbeat, I already have 3 CT's of the same coloring, though it wouldn't hurt to have one more.

There is a sticky in the classified section about how to properly pack and ship bettas if you wanted to check it out and change your mind ;)

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry
8 German Blue Ram, 5 Green Dragon BNP, 4 Albino BNP, 4 Calico BNP, 6 Red BNP, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 2 ADF, 7 Peppered Cories, & 6 Tiger Endlers + Fry
12 full time tanks, 4 NPT, 6 QT/Breeders

Is there anyway you could send me the link to that?? And also he wasn't there today when I went :/ but at least he has a home now! But in the future if I feel confident enough I don't mind mailing anyone I just am so worried that I feel like it's too risky right now.
