Local betta breeder?

My second betta Raimund died today at 6pm. I realized store bettas are all sick and i just cannot fix them. So i want healthy betta at first. Is there any local breeder in torramce ca? i couldnt find any through google. all i can find was local aquarium stores. I will dirve to the home or meeting place as far as an hour distance.

Sorry to hear about your betta. :( I'm going to be breeding in a month or so, but that doesn't help you right now. I'm only like 35-40 mins from Torrance. I do have a couple females that were "surprises" in an order from someone, but I don't know if you're interested in a female, but neither have "flashy" colors. I hope you find something. :(

I must say I disagree with your statement of 'all' store bettas are sick. I've gotten 2 bettas, a baby one from Petco and a male veiltail from Walmart - and they are both healthy, especially my baby one. I would ask the store where you get your bettas when they get their shipments in and go get one on that day, when they are fresh and haven't been in those cups for too long yet. That would increase your odds, and even if another one dies on you - just know that he died in comfort and not in a tiny cup :) I'm not saying don't get one from a local breeder - just offering a suggestion for a potentially healthy store betta. I'm sorry to hear about Raimund btw :(

Um...That statement is completely false. All my petstore betta's are healthy. Jusr because you got one that was doesn't mean all of them are

Guys/gals, I'm sure he/she only said that about pet store bettas out of frustration/being upset over just losing their betta....no need for the attacks...

She shouldn't have said a completely false statement and not expect backlash

Can nobody just keep their negative comments to themselves now a days? They just lost their fish for crying out loud. Cut some slack.
