Hello from AZ!

Hi everyone! :) My name is Bailey and I am currently a freshman in college at the University of Arizona. I have kept a few betta fish before, my last one being a blue VT named Ralph. I have set up a 1 Gallon Mini Bow desktop aquarium kit that has a filter and I'm hoping this will be a nice place for my new fish. :) I really want to buy a healthy one that is not from a big pet store, though. What would the community recommend? I want to make sure my betta has a long and healthy life and I just hate how sad the one's in the big stores look.

Ok I'm not going to tell you to buy one from me because I sell them and they don't seem fair, you can go to a petmart or local fish store, when you see 2 dozen cups filled with Bettas that looked all ragged out, you think wow. I really don't want these. but look a lil closer , there will be a couple that are still pumped up and flairing even though they all came in together buy those. or spend a lil more and call Tony at the bettashop.com in chicago, you can buy the fish you are looking at on line and they are perfect .you can have it shipped over nite or three days are they cheap, no. why because there the most exotic beautiful bettas, and sometimes he will sell juvies ,thats bettas that are 3 or 4 months old and now you have a hardy young fish of pedigree. bettaworldfighters@weebly.com

Hi everyone! :) Thanks for replying! Bettaworldfighters, I am probably going to go around to a few of my local pet stores this weekend to check them out and see if there are any that catch my eye. Otherwise, there are some really beautiful ones that I have seen on AB. Is that a good place to buy from? I'm just nervous about shipping since it's still very hot in Arizona. I will check out bettashop.com too!
