I used to have a Dwarf Gourami named Genghis Khan! Your betta is sooooo gorgeous though. That tail is PERFECT!

Where do you get such an awesome looking betta like that? All i ever see its basic looking males and females and sometimes crown tails ( not that their is anything wrong with em, =] ). But, where do i get the fancy looking bettas like that? =] =] =]
My local petsmart and petcos do not have bettas that look like that

Thanks everyone! I love him and he has such a great personality! He loves to chase and flare up and my finger and is always on the hunt for little tidbits. He's a very fun betta!

I actually found him at Care A Lot in Newport News, VA. He was incorrectly marked as a half moon... but I loved him and just informed them that all their halfmoon bettas were actually deltas. They have another one that I was SO close to getting. He was true purple lavender and a rose pink color. His finnage was no where near as nice as Khan's so I stuck with my original plan to get him and I'm SO pleased I did. He looks amazing and is just too cute!

Possibly. Care A Lot is a pretty well known chain in the Hampton Roads area... but sometimes our mom and pop store called Animal Jungle has nice bettas. I got a Opaque white crowntail from there once. You never know what you might find in those types of stores! I actually found my bright purple and pink girl I used to have at petsmart. She was amongst a batch of brown and greenish-brown females. O.o I'm going to start looking at Care A Lot every time I go to get dog food... I was shocked at the range both in colors and fin varieties they had this last time.

I thought Petco sold all types of bettas? That's where most ofrumers get their 'fancy' bettas from.

Petsmart only sells VTs and CTs, so that's why. If you have an aquarium store called Big Al's, they occasionally get 'fancy' bettas in randomly. That's where I get mine from. You can also try Aquabid if you're allowed to purchase online.
