Anyone else notice Walmart has had PRETTY bettas lately? Delimma

I just got a BEAUTIFUL red/orange butterfly VT Monday... but while there I noticed a tiny little CT... he looked emeraldish, but his waster was so dirty I cant be sure, and I noticed a solid orange VT, another VT identical to the one I got, just smaller and with a piebald head, a SOLID white VT, a PINK VT, and a purple VT....

Whats with all of the pretty bettas at Walmart????

And Im tempted to go back to walmart and get the emeraldish CT boy if hes still there :/
So, anyone else notice all of the pretty bettas at walmart recently?
and should I go back and get the emeraldish CT?
And of the one I described.. which would you get if you had room and saw them?

Hercules, Finn, Flagg, Sammy, Jackpot, Anchovy, Gotham, James, Honey, Echo, Ender, Merle, Orpheus, Dancer, Peanut, Dragon, Omen, Eurydice, Smudge
PLUS
My FIRST spawn!!!!
Unknown number of fry... HM marble + HM marble
3 Corys:
Ned, Lucky, and Dusty (AKA Nemo)

I've noticed that too. Usually all they used to have were plain blues and reds. And now they have a variety of greens and purples and whites. I JUST WANT TO SNATCH THEM ALL UP

Maybe their buying bettas from different breeders now?

Must be, but I cant believe that a breeder would sell to Walmart, not even a specialty pet store, ug

Around here our Walmarts don't sell bettas or any other fish, so I have to rely on Pestmart. I've seen some pretty VTs and some rather stunning CTs recently. Today, I found a very pretty yellow pastel VT, a GORGEOUS green copper marble CT (with columnaris. . . ), and a steel cambodian female. It was hard to not take one home ... I took the yellow guy :3
