Buying bettas

Just curious where everyone buys their bettas. I'm looking to buy 6 females and I feel a bit odd buying six of those tubs at petsmart or petco when I'm not sure if they even have 6 bettas that look healthy. Is there an easier way or should I just bring a friend and hope for the best?

I bought my first online through aquabid, and any future bettas I will buy from there or this website. It's a lot more money, but it's worth it--because you know you are buying a healthy fish and supporting a responsible breeder.

I would buy from a petstore if I felt they kept their bettas healthy, I do want to support stores who do a good job with their fish. If you find a store with lots of healthy fish, find out when they get in their betta shipments and go when they have lots of them! A good chance you'll find the females you want!
