Awww. Well at least its exciting, not knowing what you're going to get. This little double tail is sure a feisty little thing. I'm feeding them frozen brine shrimp and blood worms chopped up, and I've got a bbs culture started, should be ready by tonight. :D

The smart ones that know bettas will not do that because they care about the fish, not just the money. Also fry would probably die during shipping so they would be doing all sorts of refunds.

Yes, it goes to show how money is valued over the well being of a fish. :/ I hate it when people say "Its just a fish." If they'd take the time to realize what personality these fish have, they'd appreciate them more.

The 3 babies I got last night (Named the other two finally- one is Ala and the other is Bama... I'm a crimson tide fan) my BBS finally hatched and as soon as I introduced them to the tank, they all went NUTS darting around gobbling them up. :) I forgot how satisfying it is to see little betta babies full of food and happy.

I feel like a hero betta mom. :D

I'm guesing most of them come from thailand so I am wondering if the flooding they had a few months back had any impact on selling of babys? They started showing up in petco shortly after Thailand had those floods...

Petco and Petsmart all get their bettas from large scale wholesalers here in the states, they don't import them. But I do wonder how the floods have affected Thai breeders. O_o

thai breeders probably had extra bettas around that they had already bred, the ones you find naturally have less flashy fins and are always green
