i was tempted recently also with an LPS. there was a VT much like my DT in the avatar. the body was peach and had the faint colors of the fins starting. i would've taken him had i not recently purchased a CT in the past week.

Betta are reasonably priced locally VT are $6, CT are $10. HM and DT are different from the 2 shops ranging from $10 to $26 at the other LPS. id never get DT or HM from the one LPS when a 5 minute drive saves me $15 for the same tail type. as far as other tail types go, which ever looks nicer goes for choice locally.

Kigurumi (F) yellow PK 7/4/13, Kurama VT 9/8/13, Zeydalus Salamander EE PK 21/3/14, Ryuk turquoise dragon DeT 8/5/14----Crested Gecko (8ths old) Sven Cal 27/12/11,

RIP: Osiris copper DT, Nel blue VT, Nelliel turquoise grizzle DT, Zaku red cambo, Blitzkreig Pineapple CT, Halloween orange chocolate DeT, Grimmjow, turquoise green CT

Most VT's here are a dollar - most of our stores are packed with VT's.
Ah-hah. I'm laughing so hard!!! I got my friend into bettas!! She got one and now she's thinking about dividing... LOL.

I too have been impressed with the types and colors of betta's available at my nearest petco. VT's are 4 bucks, CT's are like 6 bucks. The HM's are the money, they're around 9-12 bucks a pop. The females are what I've been staring at lately, lot's of CT and HM females, with very pretty coloration. they're only 3 bucks.

The PS near me has Dragon Plakats......just waiting on the right one to catch my eye.....LOL
I was so happy to see Petsmart get plakats and halfmoons. This time last year I never would have thought I'd have 2 plakats and 2 halfmoons.

Muahaha. While I was talking on the phone with my friend (the one I got addicted) last night... I told her about Aquabid...
Now she's drooling over bettas...
Today I saw DRAGONSCALES at my local Petsmart, the one I chose to not go to. I also saw a pretty tan VT.
Females went back to $3, they used to be 1.

The Petco in Greenwood Indiana by the Hooters has several HMPK dragon scale bettas right now. I'll post pics in a second.
Sorry for the pic quality guys, they looked ok on the phone's little screen but pretty bad in person. The one that looks like an Aripaima I think has a spinal issue, or he's just skinny. He has been there for a few months now, SUPER tough fish I'm tempted to buy him every time I go there :)

I went into that petco today Brian. They FINALLY had CT females and that big silver male was gone, I assume someone bought him because he was marked down 50%. I would have taken him if he were still there :)

The fourth one over in the pics!?!?!? NO! I seriously drove up there to eat at Hooters yesterday but Petco was closed, we got there at like 9:10. I finally said I was going to buy him. That makes me sad. Did they have the rest of the dragon scale HMPKs I was talking about?
