Sjones: You're so lucky you've got a petco near you, though the fact that they don't take good care of their fish is bad. I've heard that Petco carries lots of differnent betta types. Though my petsmart takes awesome care of their bettas, I can't help but wish for more variety, considering the fact that apart from the occasional crowntail, it only carries red and blue veiltails.
*sigh* if only there were the perfect lfs that carried different types of bettas but also took good care of them.
But I'm off topic. You should have gotten him... and sent him to MEEEE XD
