Over here where I live the Petco keeps waaaay better care of there bettas than petsmart. And they offer lots of different kinds. Mine here sells Double tail, Crowntails, King's, Halfmoon, And some Half-suns. A little more money but you get a better looking fish and a little better taken care of(no where as good as I keep mine tho lol)

I would buy a betta form the petstore that keeps the best care of their fish overall. If the store takes good care of the other fishies, chances are the bettas will be in better health.

Good luck getting a betta! I hope he/she will live as long as your other one :D

My petsmart is awful here..but the Petco is amazing! I would buy a petstore betta that looks healthy(I'd stay away from the weak looking ones). There are some REALLY pretty bettas out there at pet places and walmarts, you just gotta look. :)

I think it is cruel to support the industry that is harming the pet store betta (its like buying puppy mill puppies) if you are not going to rescue a betta from a shelter or somewhere along those lines, get one from a breeder who cares

Well, I don't have much of a choice as far as variety goes. The place that occasionally sells fancy bettas also treats them pretty badly, so I guess I'm killing two birds with one stone.
