At my LFS they sell baby koi in a big 500 gallon pond tank thing. Here in hawaii they're popular in ponds. They're not goldfish they're those long more elegant ones with shades of blue, orange, white, and black (=

They also take great care of their Bettas! IDK about shipping, though.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

I wish they'd ship the bettas much better than they do, but maybe one day they'll too have their own airline.

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)

"Bettas need little room because they breathe air."

Really? That person that wrote that on that site is insane. That doesn't even make any logical sense! Dogs breathe air, hamsters breathe air, birds breathe air...does that mean we can stick them in tiny containers as well and don't need any room? *rolls eyes*

Also, the woman that commented she kept her fish in mayonnaise jars and cleaned the water once a week and claims her bettas are happy...that sounds like bs. Those jars are way to tiny to clean once a week and keep a happy healthy betta.

Depends...if she's a breeder I see her point but if not she should invest in some tanks.

I keep my males in quart jars cleaned 100% everyday.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Those two photos of the Betta bags made me literally gasp. I have a feeling that is why walmart Bettas so often have torn fins and are barely alive.
