I got a new betta yesterday, was not planning on it but my mom was with me at a pet store we were checking out and noticed this guy. He was on the top shelf with the more expensive bettas marked $14.99 and $25.99 but he had no price. He looked a lot more exotic than the others, so we asked how much he was. Despite asking several times, the guy insisted he was only $2.99 like the veiltails on the bottom shelf. I am wondering if there is a name for this color pattern and if he is a rare find or not? I don't really care, I pick them because I like them, but I was just curious. I look at Aquabid all the time just to see what kind of bettas exist but I haven't seen a betta this cool looking except online.
Thanks, people! As I said, I am new to betta keeping, but I thought if a halfmoon double tail and a delta tail were marked more expensive then the veiltails, this guy would be more expensive too. Well. . . that was my first trip to a fish store in my new town that wasn't Petco or Petsmart, so it was interesting to see what they had. I think half the fun is "hunting" for a betta that calls your name. :)
