Yeah if I was kept in a tiny dark room for 1/3rd of my life and then was suddenly put out in the world, I'd probably change a little too. I asked the petco guy how old his bettas were and he said the best way to tell was to go by the size of their actual body.

My Petsmart bettas have dats on the labels on their cups. Check to see if yours do too, unless they don't have labels. XD

You are lucky to have such nice bettas in your pet stores... I ordered two of mine from a breeder.

Yeah the guys at the store are kinda jerks about bettas. =/ One guy asked me why I was wasting a 10 gallon on betta fish and anter was ranting about how some people are sooo crazy about bettas.. If they didn't have such nice ones I would have told him off and left, but I kinda want a dragon of theirs, they have shorter fins, and seem really young.

Thats what I am thinking, I almost got a female I saw at petsmart, she really stood out from the others. She's a red and white marble, with red fins and white tips, I thought she was a male she kept flaring at the other females. I considered putting a female between two males instead of 3 boys. We'll see ;P

Well, off to catch Goku and do some tank fixing and then plant my new puny crypts that won't get bigger than 5" lol

Get them both

Personally I'd go for the one with the nicest colouration :)

Its so hard lol, I decided I wasn't going to divide my tank in 3, cause I wanted Goku to have the most space and be the happiest, but now I'm second guessing myself... or is it third guessing now... or 4th?

lol XD
I find it doesn't really matter if the betta is pretty, as long as you make the "connection" with it. But... a dragon would be very tempting... XD
I'm getting another betta tomorrow... hehehe. >:)
