I'm so excited

So I just found a local fish store (about 10 mins away) that sells high-end tropical fish. I called them to see if they sold bettas (thinking that they may be too "below" them) but they do!! And they import them directly from Singapore!! He was describing some of the colors to me and they sound VERY unique (not typical walmart types). It sounds like they have VTs now, or maybe DTs, and his next order will be all CTs. I'm going to go check them out today! I am considering breeding in the summer and will see if he would be interested in buying the babies from me (since I don't want to sell to our local Petco, etc.). Oooooh I am so excited!!

My husband is going to KILL me if I bring any more home tho!!!

It sounds great!! I'd definitely check it out and ask if they would take any babies if you bred yours.

Hi Guys

Wow... I stopped after work, and wow. The bettas are BEAUTIFUL. They ARE still in the small glass bowls, but MANY of them had bubble nests and none had fin rot and NONE were even remotely unhealthy.. They were HUGE, many colors (Orange with red spots, blues, greens, rainbows, pastels, metallic, yellows, fuschias blues... etc). They were all VTs but he will be getting a shipment of CTs in 3 weeks. We talked about those "other stores" and their TRUCKS OF DEATH that they buy their bettas and other fish from. His are directly from Singapore and are only $3.99 regardless of color/tail!!! I felt like I was in heaven!

I soooo wanted to buy one. There was a beautiful sunset colored one with bright red spots on its fins and a few rainbow colored ones that I was so close to getting, but my husband would be SO MAD! So I was the good wife and didn't get any...

But now I know where I will go! And what a good feeling to leave a place and know that the fish will be taken care of and not feel bad about leaving them there! What an awesome find!!!
