Yeah, I went on their website to see if they were a nat'l chain... Apparently, only a KY chain. Pretty sure they had one in Bowling Green, but you said that was a long drive for you... It is sad when good petshops go out of business! The ones around here do pretty well. Probably because of the lack of giant chains...

xD Yeah Feeders Supply is KY/IN only. D: The ones in Louisville kinda lacked in betta selection. :/
I've NEVER seen a lyre tail before! I've only seen one pic, and it was a girl. Kinda strange looking, lol. I would LOVE to see an HMCT and a CTPK!

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.

They look like this. Personally I'm not fond of them. I feel like their caudal is way too long for a DBT. ><' If it were wider it would work, but then we'd be in the HM/DT territory.

I was totally blown away by the betta selection at Big Al's today. There were mostly HMs and CTs .... BUT THE COLOURS O__o Holy moly. There were two gorgeous blue/turquoise/white marbles, several butterflies of varying shades, three solid black CTs, and (my heart nearly stopped) a mustard gas and white grizzle CT. And I saw the most amazing little HM ever ... an orange/black marble body, and a triple butterfly pattern with black and orange into white on his tail I really want to go and get him .... I'm so busy the rest of the week though. I'm very sure he's not going to be there for long because he's so eye catching.

Hmm.. here, green is next to impossible! And Halfmoons are rare - along with plakat. We have Petco and Petsmart and PJ Pets here in Edmonton (an hour and some drive for me!) but those are the rarest to come by... CT is found often at petsmart. Sent my friend to search for a green female (wild goose chase I guess) and they kept trying to get her to get me a CT male x.x I don't want more males xD And I want females! So I guess females are hard to come by too.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
