Why don't you get a 10 gallon, divide it in 2, a 5 gallon divided in two, and a couple 2.5 gallons for your favorites on Christmas? You could wrap them up, then put "From Santa to (insert your real name here)" on the cards? Then if he asks be completely sincere when you say you have no idea where they came from. ;]

If you can't tell, I try to play sly/dirty. ;]

lol that's not a bad idea! I've been pretty reluctant to use dividers since I hear all kinds of horror stories about them... but I may give it a shot sometime.

Three of them were gifts. I think they came from some Chinatown vendor.
The one in my avatar is from Thailand, through Aquabid.
And one is from Petco.

Nope, I don't go out of my way to rescue bettas. The closest I've come to that is just feeding and providing a nice habitat for a severly underfed/underexercised betta that was gifted to me.

Nancy, Neptune, and Rio came from the GABBA show auction in May.
Poe was adopted from someone who rescues bettas without paying for them and supporting the stores so they can just bring in another fish.
Lee was adopted from someone who rescued him who also did not pay for him.
Aurora, Jaffa, Chaos, Freddie, Zorro, and Demetri were purchased from Petsmart
Alexander was purchased from a LFS here in Savannah.
Jasper and Phoebe were given to me by a breeder in my group
Jane was given to me by a different breeder.
Foxy and Ada were adopted from a former member of this forum.
Damon was purchased from Wal-mart.

I have a pair of males and a pair of females both from Petco. They bring really nice fish here and I think some local breeder drops/sells his fish there too because some cups with the best fish aren't labeled, they just have the SKU written on the lids. I saw a beautiful mustard gas crowntail female that I really wanted to bring home but a cellopane crowntail won me over.

My first breeder pair will be arriving soon!!!

Both of my boys came from a local pet store called Pet City. Not necessarily planned for both to come from the same store, it just happened that way. I did go there specifically to get Goober. A few weeks later I went back for some supplies and ended up with Helios (yellow crowntail). I almost didn't get him because he was all blah on the bottom of his bowl, but then he suddenly perked up at his neighbour and I couldn't resist!

Spectre - white/black dragon DT; Mr. Bojangles (Bojo) - blue/white/black HM

Helios; Gooberfish; Sparrow; Cassia; Root Beer; Pendragon; Uther; I.T.; Arthur; Aether;
Decepticon; Pinna; Newf; Nebula; Altair; Barinthus; Ecto
