you'll probably regret asking this question because the site is too addictive but aquabid.com has tons of fish, multicolored betta included. mind you the shipping will cost you to an extent as per the seller's location. just search for the fish you want and you'll find him/her.

leaving online site alone you could check out your local pet stores.

I've been on that site and the only one I found would have to be shipped from thailand, I feel thats a bit.to far and the only other betta the local pet store has besides.VTs.is one single white and pink delta, but I dont really like how unhealthy it looks and when I asked them about a crowntail they had no idea what I spoke off

I could easily get you a blue CT. xD probably a female aswell..blues are common here. ...I also have a spawn of mixed blue CT/combtails growing right now, but they're only two weeks old so it'll be a couple months before i'm able to send them out. If i have more then 20 reach adult hood i'll probably be posting a couple for adoption on here.
But you would have to pay to have it shipped to you(not sure on the weather over there, it's warm enough for priority/flat rate here but if it's cold there then i wouldn't reccommend it.


if you have a petsmart, call and ask when they're next shipment is coming in and go look then. You can probably find one you like and save shipping.

Seager, for quality bettas AB is very good I hear - not used it myself. Yes the trip for them can be stressful and you will have to do just a bit more acclimatisation to ensure transfer survival. But that would be one method to obtain your CT.

Short of this, you will have to source local pet stores. I recommend you ring beforehand, no point in going into the shop to find what they have or don’t have. Ask if they have any CTs - if they do, head in and see what they got. This method may expand your willingness to do a long distance trip to a store should they guarantee a CT being there.

Other than that, you other option is local breeders to you or within your country. BF has classifieds for Bettas up for sale/adoption, but they will be traveling in a similar fashion to anything via AB in Asia.

Hope you find what you are after - just be aware, CTs are finicky with water hardness. Their rays will curl if it is too hard, defeating the whole aesthetic purpose of getting a CT.
