Big Ear/ Dumbo/ Elephant Ear

This past Saturday my Mom and I went to PetCo I got an EE as it was listed and my mom got a Delta Tail but it also has Big ears. So what makes the difference in the type of betta if all big ear/ dumbo/ EE are rare? I paid $21 for my EE and my mom only paid $6 for a big ear. So why was my betta more expensive than my moms betta?

Was your moms labled as an EE or a halfmoon? That determines the price usually.

they don't always label them correctly. That's the difference.

I got a plakat from my local Petco that has big ears (or a big ear, one is torn) that was labeled halfmoon plakat - which made it cheaper than the ones labeled elephant ear.
I also saw some containers that had the sticker X'd out (one was labeled halfmoon, another delta) and "elephant ear" was written on the lid.

I also got an elephant ear at petco last week. I saw quite a few bettas mislabeled. Sounds like your mom got a deal on hers. I told the worker about the mislabeled bettas and he didn't seem to give a hoot. I feel sorry for the poor schmuck who pays $20 for a veil tail marked as an elephant ear.
