Hahenry22 - there arent too many pet stores around me and most of them are small. the closest petsmart or petco is an hour away. only problem with that are prices, but its nice because they usually order anything they dont have for customers. my fiance orders a bunch of things for his chinchilla =)
belphegor - no, i live in New Hampshire, away from the cities, so there are a lot of smaller places.
binx123, DoctorWhoLuver - thanks =)
nel3 - currently, i have 4 male bettas (blue VT, blue/white big ear/elephant ear DT, and the two above) and 1 female (blue VT). my fiance has a blue/red CT i bought him in Maine. as stated, ive got a couple females coming and then i will be good for a while so i have plenty of space for the fry =)
Lady_Courage - thanks! im getting better at it. the forums have really been helping and i have also been looking into the genetics too, which has been really helpful!
LittleFish2012 - most people i have asked say both are double double rays. i am going to try and get more photos of them
