They seem to be pretty rare if this forum is any indication. I got him at my local Pet Supplies Plus. He was in a filthy cup on a "back to school" betta display that was selling those disgusting 1/4 gallon and 1/2 gallon bowls and marketing them toward college students.
I actually didn't get him for me, but for another forum member. I kept him for a little while to make sure he was fit for shipping (he had some pretty awful finrot and was missing a chunk of his tail as well as being underfed and listless) and then things just sort of never worked out. I got attached to him and asked her if I could keep him (she had never paid me because I hadn't sent him yet, so no loss for either of us) and she said I could. So Ramses is my special little friend now. He has a tank right beside my bed and I am always playing with him with a mirror, letting him follow my finger, and giving him treats.
That... turned into a long story. But anyway, I got him at Pet Supplies Plus. They had two DSVTs, but I only picked up Ramses. I hope the other dude made his way to a good home.
