Yes, that store with the nicer betta set-ups was about a 30 minute drive away, so not too far but not around the corner. (Arizona Nature Aquatics, I think they were called.) They seem to specialize in aquatic planting but I read that more experienced aquarists said things like "don't go to any other store" . . basically the water is crystal clear, it's a small business run by people who love the hobby, and they have all those contemporary tanks without edges like the ones that look like Fluval tanks and such. They don't specialize in bettas but it wasn't a surprise to see that they treated them nicely. I found them on Facebook and it looks like they post whenever they get new bettas, and they post photos. I am going to keep my eye out now. :) They also helped me because I needed to learn a little about what kind of filter I could get with bettas.
