Question Where is the best place???

I am going to finally get a betta :), I think this sight convinced me, and I want to know what would be the best place to get one. At my LFS, they have nice bettas, but so does Wal Mart. I've heard stories of wal mart fish dying and all that, but everyone has mixed opinions...what would you recommend?...Seeing as most people here are avid betta fish owners

You can check your lfs and Walmart and just pick one that catches your eye and is the color and tail type you want. If both places have healthy fish, check both places.

Well the BEST place to buy would be from Aquabid.com or a betta breeder in your area but those are too expensive of a pet for most of us. Out of those choices I would probably go to Petco as they probably have more supplies for your betta (if you need them) and I dont know how good Walmarts return policy is in case something bad happens.

Petco has more of a choice as far as different tail types. They have halfmoons, crowntails and crowntail females. Petsmart only has veiltails and crowntails. I was tld at another lfs that halfmoons weren't in demand. Well I think thats a bunch of baloney.

Yeah, that is true. I would love to buy one online from like breeders who specialize in bettas, but that's sort of out of the question, lol.

They can be rather expensive. If I paid like $80-100 for a betta, people would be like "what??? You paid that for a FISH!!! "

I got my bettas from several different stores lol. Three from my lfs,one from petsmart and my halfmoon from petco. All seem fine pretty much. The only ones that look horrible are the ones at walmart. I feel so bad for them.

All but 2 of mine came from Petsmart. Petsmart is within walking distance from my house so I go over there a lot.
