Admit it; we've all seen those BEAUTIFUL bettas that we were like... "What is he doing in a PETSTORE?!" and some of us purchased that outstanding betta and some of us left him and came back or simply couldn't get him for whatever reason and prayed he found a good home.
I thought this would be a fun thread to start for everyone to share what bettas they've seen or heard of that were at a petstore.
If you bought that betta, POST PICS.
1. The first betta I saw and didn't buy was the most pretty metallic white with turquoise/green spots (like an orange dal.) He was a delta tail and OMG was beautiful.. Instead I rescued my two teeny tiny girls whom are up for adoption. I know they would have died if I left them there.
2. Pale lavender dragon scale at petsmart. I left him and got Zippy and Koi instead. He was pretty but didn't call to me. I set him in front :3
3. An orange VT at Walmart. SOLID orange, and he was Orange, not gold, not yellow. He was purchased a day or two after he came in I think. (Alex, my bf, checked for me.)
4. According to a friend of mine, she has an obsession with king bettas. And normally, the kings at petco (Not correctly named I know but that is how they're labeled) are very dark black or brown, with some hints of metallics at times. But she went to her local petco and found a pastel pink king!
The cashier was trying to charge her $35... In my petco kings are only $13.. Does your petco charge more than $13 for a king???
Anyway, so far for me that's it. How about you?? Did you go back for that shockingly beautiful petstore betta?
