No, pet stores have strict contracts with their suppliers, they don't purchase unwanted fish from local breeders. For me, fish that aren't sold or culled become pets for myself and my family.

Cool

http://www.aquabid.com is a good place to start window shopping. Try to get some idea of what you want to breed for. Color or type or both.

Check with your local pet stores, if you have any. Not the big chain ones, but mom and pop type stores. I have one that has agreed to buy any betta's I raise.

You shouldn't cross two different fin types without a specific reason. For example, experienced breeders will cross doubletails into a line to improve the broadness of the dorsal and anal fins. You aren't to that point where it is necessary just yet, so stick to the same tail types. I recommend HMPK as they are very hardy, they don't get weighted down by their finnage, there's less of a chance for damage during spawning, and tail-biting isn't an issue. Crowntails require very soft and pristine water, as bending/curling/breaking of the exposed rays can happen very easily.
