This is actually the second time I've seen a striped panchax come out of a betta cup, oddly enough.
They are hilarious looking fish with those faces and my store always has a ton of them in-tank.

Where in the bay area are you and how could they mix that up? Don't the bettas sold at pet stores come from breeders or farms? This really doesn't make sense to me...

Haha I was about to say that is a killifish. They get pretty big but they have tons of personality. Anything that can fit into their mouth they will eat and killifish have massive mouths for their size.

Also they jump something shocking so you have to have everything covered on the top of your tank. I have lost several killies to jumping as they will find the tiniest gap. I gave up and just use cling wrap now.

You could probably take it back to the store as it really isn't the product advertised that you have purchased.

Yeah this guy is uh like bigger than ever now, he has 4 bloodworms stuck in his mouth while trying to still feed on more bloodworms, it makes no sense. LOL! Well I think I enjoy their personality it kind of reminds me of myself. I'm going to keep him, and get another tank very soon. I went to 7 aquarium stores yesterday, and the nicest one that I hit up was called Neptunes in Milpitas,CA. They have a straight sea set up, but their plant and landscape set ups are crazy good. I will update on this Killi, till then I will be on vacation!

Our local grocery store sells these guys under the name of "Panchax". I've been hoping to eventually get the space to keep them and get a male and a couple of females. I don't remember how much they sell them for though, next time I go into town, I'll double check.

Nice find, they're so neat looking!
