I think petco imports theirs from big farms over in thailand. Petsmart has a big farm in the states. Not sure about walmart -- I think that ThaiTyBetta dude on youtube that everyone hates probably breeds some for there.

Basically -- Chain stores like that get the cull quality (but not deformed) fish from big farms.

Hmm, I dont have any local stores near me so I couldnt tell you.
But, I plan to charge 15-20 for my good quality fry, and I know that most breeders on here sell them for between 15-30ish.

Our local store here in Michigan, ships their bettas and guppies from a farm in Florida. I think our Petco also ships theirs from Fl farms too... could even be the same one, for all I know.

Hey! A couple times a month I don't end up being too far from you! -you are probably the closest person I've seen on this site!




And I don't know about that thaitybetta dude breeding for Walmart, I just know in his videos he had a ton of Walmart buckets so I figured he might be sponsored in some way lol
