purple veil tail

I saw a purple veil tail today at petco, the place I'm not buying bettas from. Apparently true purple veil tails are rare....I am not buying anymore bettas. Help!

were you? I thought the cups looked pretty clean-ish still from the big day the other day! We should have met up there! Lol! Oh well, how could you miss the purple guy? But I WILL resist, yes I must. (four is enough!)

Cleanish compared to what they usually look like there. But some guys were floating sideways and barely swimming unless you jostled the cup. I guess I am just used to our store where that doesn't happen (or those are the WORST conditions!).

I don't usually look at the VTs... I am kind of a tail-snob!! ha!

I would love to see her too. I have seen your male but never your female betta novice.

Sjones: You're so lucky you've got a petco near you, though the fact that they don't take good care of their fish is bad. I've heard that Petco carries lots of differnent betta types. Though my petsmart takes awesome care of their bettas, I can't help but wish for more variety, considering the fact that apart from the occasional crowntail, it only carries red and blue veiltails.

*sigh* if only there were the perfect lfs that carried different types of bettas but also took good care of them.

But I'm off topic. You should have gotten him... and sent him to MEEEE XD

hmm, I could I just don't have the proper fish shipping materials, also as someone said on here when you buy one from petco it another will take its place and they treat their bettas badly so I hate to support them..
anyway, who are you going to put in the ten gallon? maybe I'll send you one of mine :)
