So I went to aquarium central, and despite Sena Hansler's negative review, I was really impressed.
They had Betta smaragdina but they were not for sale as a precaution because one of them was recovering form some sort of disease. The smaragdina needed to colour up a bit but they were still beautiful. They were eight bucks each... A really good price.
Their stock was reasonably priced. They also had a good selection, smaller then big Als but much less expensive. They had rabbit snails in all sorts of colours (most of them were 4$), lots of shrimp (decent prices), and lots of other awesome things. They carried hikari frozen foods, and I bought some brine shrimp because I am not nervous to use hikari food (much better sanitization practices). Oh, and their frozen food was almost half the price of petsmart's.
Oh, and I also want to add that while I was there, one employee, a young woman, was talking to another employee about the temperature of the betta bowls (which were large for a petstore). She was noticeably angry because their bowls weren't 76 degrees... Awesome.
So yea... I will be back.
