My petsmart only has veiltail females, males and crowntail males. However, I just got a new girl from there for .99 as they're having a huge sale on bettas. Males were like $2.99, too, compared to the usual 3/4.99.

I've never been to a Petsmart in my entire life, but it doesn't sound as if they have a very great selection. Petco has always given a wide variety of bettas that are healthy and active here in Michigan. It's proven itself as the best pet store around. However, you never know what you might find at pet stores, so it's worth a look. Sometimes you can find some really great fish even if they are the most common species/tail type.

unfortunately in newfoundland, our choices are very.. limited.
The other petshop I visit has had the same half a dozen nearly identical blue bettas sitting in their tiny "homes" looking forgotten and miserable for a few weeks. One smaller pet store, local had some CT's and there were about 15. Having said that I'm curious to see what they are going to carry in the betta department.

Some around here are all VTs. Sometimes a handful of CT males are there but I have yet to find a CT female. Plus the colors are generally plain.

PetCo? Every tail type usually and a bunch of cool colors and patterns(:

Kaida- CT Female 2.5 Gal.
Julep- HMPK Male 2.5 Gal.
Fandango-HM Male 10 Gal.

I have had similar experiences at PetSmart, fish look ill and are on a shelf that is at my knee level.
Petco in my town has the best selection of Bettas I have ever seen and they take good care(clean water) also they display them well too.
