Oh my gosh!

So I was surfing AquaBid again... I do it when I have nothing else to do... And I found a place in my area (Portland) selling them! Not only that, they are selling wild types.

This is the list of what they have:
Betta splendens - male and female - $3
CT - male and female - $4
HM - male and female - $8 and $10
Brueni Betta (betta macrostoma) - $180 a pair
Golden ninja betta (betta strohi) - $16
Green mask betta (betta pugnax) - $8
Green moon spot betta (betta uberis [Kubu]) - $16
Green spot betta (betta cocinna) - $5
Peacock betta (betta imbellis) - $3.50, 6 for $18
Red cherry betta (betta channoides) - $15
Strawberry betta (betta albimarginata) - $16


I had no idea that they carried such a variety or that they had so many wild types there!

Yeah. They aren't that far from where I live. Thinking about going out there tomorrow to see what they have for females. Very interested to see their stock.

Going to try to talk Devon into taking me over there tomorrow while we're out getting a new camera.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I'm certainly interested in the quality of their fish and tanks. They are some of the only people that I see selling Pangio loaches on AB. I've been looking to expand my loach pile, but I wanted to get a better feel for them.

the few female "halfmoons" I saw weren't actually HM. CT girls aren't bad. I got a cute little copper CT girl from them. I think I've only seen wild type colored VT females. they usually have some really pretty males though. I usually get my plants from them

Ooooh, that website. I saw them on aquabid, tried to find the website and realized you really need to add "tropical fish" in there or you end up at a very unpleasant website. Please, no one try to find out what I mean. Just go to wetspottropicalfish.com and don't, for the life of you, forget the tropical fish part of the URL.

They have a whole lot of wild-caught rare fish on aquabid.
