Where does everyone get their Betta's from?

I am so loving aquabid but I was also wondering if there were other places or do people just go to the local Petco or petshops to buy them?

I have a feeling this is going to be major new hobby.

i bought mines at a local pet store, they keep all their bettas really clean
compared to the walmart and petsmart in town. Also, i feel better giving my
$$ to them because they're local people
I've been wanting to go to Petco, but the nearest one is 40 mins to 1 hr away

Petsmart, Petco and Walmart primarily. I have 2 from a local LFS that imports them in from overseas. My husband said no more chain petstore bettas and that we would order them from the LFS until I saw 2 bettas that were light yellow at Walmart Sunday and had to get them. I had told him a couple of weeks ago that if I saw yellow bettas I was getting them. I should just order them but the fish in the chain stores are right in front of me!

19 males all but 1 in 5 gal tanks
1 giant in a 16 bowfront
52 female sorority, 15 raspboras, 6 corydora sterbia and BN pleco in a 72 gallon

Other tanks - 135 gallon african cichlids, 48 breeder SA cichlid, 30 gallon hex goldfish, 30 gallon community fish and shrimp tank, 12 gallon hex growout

2 Chihuahuas, 2 1/2 lab 1/2 weim dogs and 2 cats
1 Husband and 1 3 year old princess

Most do. My local wal-mart gets shipments in on Thursdays. Last time my folks went without me though the betta's weren't lookin' too healthy. We're planning to stalk them on Friday the day after shipping day to get the cream of the crop so to speak.
