Nono, Petsmart here has few females. Petco here has less than the males but still an ok amount.
I over heard a mother telling her son, "no females, they die faster than boys."
I think that is why more males are sold...
I'm really picky over my fish. If it's very pretty, but sick, I will still take it home as long as what I believe it has I can cure.

lol!! That's very creative!! I would be afraid she'd jump out of it though, with no lid.

Of all the different fish I have had, none have ever jumped unprovoked.
She lives alone, no fish near her, so no reason to jump to attack. Males live next door of each other, and if I didn't have lids on their tanks, they would and have jumped over to get the other guy.
Rainbow sharks, Tetra, Platy, Dojo and others, none of these fish have ever jumped out. I did have a Gourami jump out once, but that is because another fish was torturing it all over the tank. Main times to worry about a fish jumping is water changes, chemical shock, objects dropped into the tank and new light patterns.

I did put a lid on last night, more so to keep heat/humidity in though. She is more interested in the stuff that's IN the tank than out of it. ^.^

I think the "lid over tank" is just for heavy precaution. I have seen lots of cases of jumping bettas, but of course lots of cases where none have jumped. I just see it as "why risk it?" Besides, I'm having a fly infestation. Last time a fly got into the tank (about a year ago), my betta got a nasty disease. Or so I believe, could have been coincidence but... still. Thank goodness he made it through, haha.
Sorry that was offtopic.

I want a female one day. I told myself I wouldn't divide anymore, but... maybe I can divide a 5 gallon for two females (not interestsed in sororities). Who knows...

And also, females die younger than males? Is this remotely plausible?
