WANTED: Dumbo/Elephant ear Betta.

Hey everyone!

I've been oogling dumbo ears for a while now. My supplier is all sold out and they say it will be at least a couple weeks before they get more in, and I'm getting antsy lol.
Just wanted to see if anyone had any dumbos they are wanting to sell. I fell in love with one female on Aquabid, but her auction ran out before I had the money for her, and the seller is not emailing me back, and has not re-listed her....

I would prefer a bold blue colour. I'm not a huge fan of the purple/violet/lavender colours. Male or female works, I would prefer a HMPK in hopes that I wouldn't have a 4th tail biting betta but I am willing to take in any tail type as long as they're healthy.
He/she would be a pet/family member, well loved and cared for like my other 5 boys. I have a brand new 3 gallon tank in its box ready for a new arrival. Just thought I would see what is out there before I give up and move on from my love for dumbo ears.
I don't have hundreds of dollars to spend, but I'm open to offers and will pay shipping for sure.

This is the little female I fell in love with. I loved her bold blue and white contrast. To me she was adorable, even though her fins are not "perfect". I'm a bit upset that I was not able to get a hold of her...

I have a bunch of EE's in my area, I could keep an eye out for you if you wanted and then ship them to you. Mostly they are boy's; mixed PK and regular. If you wanted to buy from a breeder that's fine too ^_^ just offering up an option!

Ugh. Makes me think of the EE male at my petco suffering from SBD. I saw that they're feeding freeze-dried bloodworms. Makes me sick. If you're interested, I would eat the cost and do my best to nurse him... he seems to be a fighter... just throwing it out there. They also have healthy ones, just can't get that boy out of my mind.

From the pet store is fine by me. When I say "my supplier" I'm talking about the guy that my work gets bettas from xD
What color is the SBD betta there? I hate to say no to the guy, but I'm really not keen on the purple/violet/lavender colors, which is all I'm seeing on Aquabid right now.. :/ I'm really in love with the blues. If he's blue, I would take him if you can nurse him. I cannot imagine shipping with SBD would be very good for him >.<

Ended up grabbing him. You're not obliged by any means. Hubby might not want to give him up. We'll see. He looks to be a blue but is ammonia burned pretty bad.

Aha sorry guys, I forgot to highlight that I'm from the great white north ;P Though that little dumbo ear does look really cute. I wish you best of luck JDragon!! He's a cutie!

MattsBettas, I have been secretly lurking on your spawn logs If I don't find my EE by then, I'll definitely check out any you have available in your next batch.
