I got mine from a LFS. Even though the place I got him from had about 20 VT's, they have pristine water. Just the temperature is a bit low in there, but at least I'm not supporting fish cruelty.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

I have 2 from Wal*Mart, 2 from PetCo, 1 from my LPS, and 1 from PetSmart. So, basically, I get them from where ever I find one that I love.

Most of mine are from Martinismommy, as for the others one is from a local fish store, one is a rescue, two are from another breeder, and one is a female I raised myself.

I got my boy from petsmart, they are kept in clean looking water, even if the wall of jars is kinda small >.>
My friend, after spending the past week listening to me rave on and on about my beta, just picked up a crown tail at the local pet shop.

I bought my original bettas from a local breeder who was quitting the hobby and selling his hm breeders after breeding bettas for half a century.

All but one of mine are from AB. Now to break it down, 6 are from Martinismommy, 2 are from Dragonlady, and the rest are from Thai breeders. The one not from AB is a local Petco find. I recently shared my pet only bettas with some of my dad's coworkers... so I needed to refill it ;)
