I am suprised pet store Bettas usually come that badly. Because of bad genetics and old age.

Well they were from Thailand AND I took my time choosing my pair. It doesn't show in the pictures but the parents also have a tail spread of 180 degrees when flaring.

Thialand supplis most Bettas. Carter is from Thialand. Thialand Breeders do some of the worst practices. They raise them for a little while breed them during that time and sell them too old to breed. Sad part in Thialand there nobody no one notices and prefers the good one.

Oh Wow!! Thanks for informing me. Hopefully that's not what happened to my pair.
I've always heard good things about Thailand bettas like "They have the best quality bettas and they sell them at such a young age which is good if you want to breed." I guess this isn't always true.

The guy I buy bettas from isn't from Petco or anything like that. He owns this little store and I swear, he has widest variety of bettas, almost every tailtype, and most are capable of placing first in contests.

Is that where you get your bettas from? They have the best bettas sometimes.
