I tell you what... I'm moving down to GA in a few months and I have friends and family in NC. I'll keep my eyes out for a mustard just like him and if I know I'll go through there, I'll pick one up for you and drop it off. You'll just have to pay for price of the fish from the store. (Disclaimer: I have no idea how/if this plan will work at all.)
Yup. Like I said, I'm not really sure how it'll work out, but I can try... It'll all really depend on if I pass through your area. I would get you pictures and make sure you like the betta first, of course. I can't get anymore fish (even though I wanted them all), I'll be in trouble with the gf. xD
To be honest, I hadn't paid attention to their betta stock for years. I really only started going to that store more frequently again because of my cat and when I went to get cat litter last month, I took a peak at the fish displays and noticed Grimm and Dante and I couldn't help myself. Then I saw the mustard and the other I didn't get last week, and like I said, there could have been more based on how many bettas they had in stock but we had to leave. From what I remember, their variety has gotten a lot bigger. So many colours and types to choose from. ><
In past two years, all my fish died. A bad case of ich broke out in the goldfish tank. My cichlids that I kept four or five years started dying one after the other and I couldn't figure out why. They would be perfectly normal one day and lying on the bottom of the tank the next. Dead within hours. I tried everything. It was so frustrating and depressing and I really wanted to swear off fish.
Then I discovered betta fish again. Other people eat buckets of ice cream when they're down, I guess I get bettas. xD I got five in less than thirty days.
Haha! I eat buckets of ice cream any day! when I was younger we had 2 goldfish because the house me moved to had a fish tank in the back yard. I believe it was a 10G, which considering the bowls most people keep them in, this was an okay tank. I have no idea how much we cleaned it.
