Thanks for all the feedback folks! But it wasn't my intention to start a war. lol
As far as the tank goes, it's a 55 gallon. I am not going to list the numbers and types of fish that are in there. They are all doing fine together and have been for roughly a year. If any problems arise I will deal with them, but so far so good!
The fish store I bought the bettas in question from is not a chain store. In his defense, he has been in business for over 25 years and is a respected wholesaler who ships all over Canada, has travelled the world, and does speaking engagements and talks all over North America. (He has limited retail hours also) If an error was made, well poop happens. Its not like I got a shark instead of a guppy!
I thank you all for your lively interest in my fish. Absolutely no offense was taken by any means! I'm on this forum to enjoy the variety of opinions from all fellow fish keepers and maybe make some friends along the way. Smile everyone :)

No offense but a year is nothing.

Oh the tank seems smaller! Great tank size for angels. Just make sure that you watch the bettas when they do indeed get bigger. Being a cichlid, they can get aggressive.

Sorry that you got ripped off. They are at least nice bettas though. Maybe you should ask the fish place if the can correct the name on those bettas so someone else doesn't get what is listed.

Here goes, I tried to get a few better shots for you, at least I think they look better than the last try. They aren't much for posing!

They might be 2 or 3 generation hybrids.
