Petco/Petsmart/LFS finds?

I love bargain shopping and I love finding quality things for cheap! So I am wondering what spectacular finds you have found at your local Petco/Petsmart/LFS? I just love seeing what has sneaked by the breeders and ended up in a petstore!!! For some reason this just fascinates me!

Here are my guys fro my local Petco. I know I have asked this previously, but are you sure my red iridescent guy isn't a dragon?? I just keep hoping he's grown into one :):)

Please share your finds with me!!!

The guy who started it all, Gipper:


Couldn't resist this guy's eyes (and his tail is changing colors from clear to raspberry!!). Piglet:



Bumble: Love his color!



Dane: his tanzanite coloring matches the tanzanite in my engagement ring (my favorite color!)



Bubbles: Constantly blows a bubble nest, and is ALWAYS doing the Betta Butt Wiggle as i call it (protecting his territory). He is REALLY shiny but he paces the back of the tank under the filter so couldn't get a good close up.





And my favorite color combo - Cielo!!




I want to see your Pet Store finds!!

Fish and Freddie aren't all that spectacular. Blue Jeans is a great example of the vt standards of the EHBBC (the IBC doesn't have VT standards)


Damon is just a find because you never see butterfly VTs in my neck of the woods ;).

I haven't had much luck with my 'fancy' bettas.

First I had Felix, who was a pure yellow CT.



Sarpedon, black CT that died a couple of days after this picture...



Dmitri, who also died soon after this.



Though on the bright side, I still have Roald Dahl!



And my favourite boy, Renard!

I have 6 that I thought were excellent finds. I love finding mutts or weird colored ones. I don't know how to write after the pictures, so the first picture is Indy my mustard gas CT. I got him at Petco and he was in the way back. The second fish is Mercury my dragon delta who I got at a family run pet store. The third fish is Poseidon my CT who I got at Walmart and he had NO coloring and within a couple hours of putting him in the tank he brightened up so much. The fourth fish is Romeo my HM. I got him at Petco and my dad thought he was ugly because he didn't have much color but now it's his favorite fish.lol The fifth fish is Orchid my dragon delta. I got him at the same pet store as Mercury. Last but not least is Valentino my VT. I got him at a mall and he was in the smallest cup. His tail has gotten sooo long. It reminds me of a horses tail.lol
