I will buy a petstore Betta if It really grabs my attention, and looks healthy, but if I am going to breed a petstore betta I usually find a quality betta online for breeding. Petstore Bettas are not bad, as long as you get a healthy one. If you go into a store and the bettas are all in dirty water, and are losing color or have fin rot, then they are not being taken care of properly, so I woulden't buy one. However if most of the bettas are in clean water and most look healthy then I would buy one. I am lucky here where I live there are 3 or 4 locally owned aquarium stores, and they seem to take much better care of their bettas. You could look up aquarium stores on Yellow pages in your area. They might have bettas.
