I want to cry!

So I have been planning my betta for about 3 months now... Nothing bought yet but I have been looking around as many pet shops and aquatic stores as possible for suitable tanks, plants, gravel, stones etc... So at first I just wanted a veiltail as they are so pretty and the only bettas I have seen in real life... But now I have been snooping round aquabid I really want a halfmoon!

So I live in the UK and a very rural area at that... And my local pet stores very rarely have bettas in... So far my pet shops have had 4 bettas in 3 months all were gone 2 days later... All veiltails in either red or blue. They seem so wanted here yet so rare!

I'm unsure of importing for my very first fish but I'm fed up of this mad fish hunt!

I feel like crying...

Have you asked your fish store they can special order for you? That might be an option, some LFS will do that.

There are a couple of breeders on this forum that have halfmoons. You might want check with them. You would have to pay shipping of course but some might be willing to give you a pet quality fish at no extra charge or a lower cost than a show quality fish.
