If you look at them there easy to confuse. I am surprised you have a 30 gallon. Did you know all bamboo shrimp are wild caught. I was implying that it was Amano because they can run on land and fit your description. Sorry.

Bought 5 more bettas for $14. I was checking out and the lady asked " do you know how to properly care for them? Females are semi aggressive and males you can't keep together." I WAS LIKE, " I ALREADY HACE 5 BETAS! I KNOW HOW TO CARE FOR THEM." That shut her up. She still looked at me like I was nuts.

I don't know if this has been said or not, but I was just at my local petco and saw a whole display dedicated to "baby bettas" my mom thought they were adorable but I was sickened. These guys weren't even an inch long and only had the bare beginnings of color tinting their fins.

Argh! I'm not a perfect fish parent, but come on, really? Baby fish?

Do your pet stores all have those stupid directions on the top of the cup?

The one that says "feed sparingly once a day, change 1/3 of water once a week & use room temperature bottled or dechlorinated water"?

Kind of like they label males with fin rot as females? It isn't that hard to tell a CT from a VT, though.

Haha, chances are most people buying a betta won't know the difference.
For whoever gets that one... lucky them. CT's are generally more expensive that VTs. Where I got my CT, he was $13 and the VTs were about $6.

At walmart here, the CTs are about $6 and the VTs only about $3.

I was at petsmart. Regular CT females are about $5.99 I have a PetPerks which means I get them for $2.99
VT females are normally $2.99. I got mine for .99
