Smile Betta Breeders in the USA?

Hey everyone, Happy Easter! I have been searching around for an online breeder/seller of high quality or import Bettas, and have found a few but am still searching. I'll be upgrading my current boys to a 20 gallon long divided tank hopefully soon, and will have a few slots open for some new members. :P I would still love to try spawning a pair this summer, so I'm partly looking for that, but also just nice healthy fish in general. If anyone knows of either a good website with decent shipping costs, or a LFS in the Dallas TX area, respond to this thread with links! Thanks!

Are you a member of dfwfishbox.com? It has an Lfs map. Aquatic wonderland in Arlington is getting a shipment of bettas from tialand in next week. He only charges $15 per betta. I think they go quick but he also does special orders.

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

Check Aquabid. Martinismommy, Basement Bettas, Hopdiggity are all in the US and are decent sellers. I will say that for breeding quality fish the imports that Hopdiggity are selling aren't the best quality but are still pretty if your looking for a pet. She also offers free priority shipping.

Beat should be offering some of his MG juvies for sale in a few weeks however I'm not sure if they'll be breeding size by then. I also believed Dragonlady mentioned having some fish available too.

Youre welcome! :) I have two black dragon plakats from there and love them. The owner David said the shipment is supposed to be in on Thursday. I live in Arlington so I have been stopping in on the weekends to check. It is a hard place to find. It is tucked in behind a mechanic shop/used car lot. He has some interesting fish. Mainly imports like flowerhorns, discus and arowanas. They do have a website www.aquaticwonderland.com

I refuse to buy any from Martinismommy until I feel ready to try breeding, they just seem so flipping perfect that I'd almost feel bad not breeding them, lol

Tisia, I do believe MartinisMommy does have just pet quality bettas available at times as well.
