Hardest day of my life

Went around to my lfs and petco today to see what they have. At my lfs I was greeted by 5 pure black hmpk males and one king veiltail Betta. At petco I saw 8 giant (4+ inch) hmpk males, several hmpk males, 4 double tail hmpk males, and several half moons, half-moon double tails, super deltas, and veil tail double tails... It felt like I was on aqua bid. Plus the most expensive fish was only $30 for the giant hmpk's, their normal hmpks were absolutely beautiful and only $12... Why don't I have more tank space

My Girlfriend and I have these Bettas

Wow that's harsh /= If I had Bettas like that around here I'd be going crazy trying to buy some...

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

My Petsmart had a white male which I hadn't noticed before and wish I would have gotten.

They also had a nice red/white/blue one. I have never seen one with three colors before until then. They are so beautiful!

I HATE that.. I spent weeks searching petstores looking for THE betta.. found him, and now there are ones I want EVERYWHERE.

Sometimes goodbye is a second chance <3

So It's my first day back intown for winter break so naturally I went back to check my petco's stock... Walked out with 3 new fishes 2 hmpk males and a half-moon male (who was labled as a delta and thus cost half as much)! Pictures will be up soon... 0 to 12 bettas in 3 months lol
