Smile Where did you get your fish?

Hmm around this forum, I see alot of fancy pampered Bettas, recently got from aquabid or some other fancy fish shop. They are shiny, and look well treated and healthy. Then I look at my fish Aurora, who just came home from a horrible life in a Petco and... I love him even more :P I could have gotten one off a website, but I wanted to try and "rescue" a betta from a horrible life in a little container. Aurora was barely swimming, with his fins folded up when i got him, and just after a day, his upper fin has shot out and hes extremely active. Now the point of this post.. where did you get your fish from? Is anyone else like me, trying to save a Betta's life?

Let's see. XD
I got Murdoc, Marmaduke, Spiridion, Buggsie, Tallulah-Faye, and Stu at Petsmart. I got Buggsie because he looked like he was about to die.
I got Norm from a person on Kijiji. He was in a really disgusting bowl. o.o
I got Hattie and Peanut (R.I.P) from a breeder
I got Horatio, Felix, and Maisie from Big Al's,
And I got Nereus and Damon at PJ's Pets.

All of mine came from Petco :3 Except one, who was a gift. He came from Pet Supplies "Plus".

Winston - Wal-Mart
Tifa - Wal-Mart (Originally thought to be a female. Definitely NOT. lol)
Nina - Found half dead at Wal-Mart
Cameron - Adopted from a fellow bettafish.com-er.
Damian - Wal-Mart

The reason being for the whole Wal-Mart thing is I tend to come out late at night for all of my shopping needs. XD

I got Genie and Alakazam (rest his soul) From Petsmart. =] Unfortunately I think a lot of the fish that come from there are sick. =[ And they sell crowntails when they KNOW the area has EXTREMELY hard water. =/ Makes no sense to me. =/

I feel you there. =]

Plus! I found some orange DBVT betas with blue eyes (<3) there a few weeks ago. They're both dead now but if I had the room or the patience to have another betta or two I would've saved one or both of them! Sadly, I don't have the means or the patience for another fish atm. =/

Yeah, I'm already at 5 water changes twice a week with my boys and girl. If I had to do another I'd explode.
Though there was this tiny white female with huge eyes I have my eye on at petsmart... I think I'm a sucker for the small ones lol...

But god forbid I upgrade my tanks and get filters lol... The boyfriend would have a fit. I just have to keep sneaking 2.5 gal tanks into the house every month or so and maybe he won't notice ;)

Anyway... back on topic... Future little white female VT - Petsmart. XD

I want a white female, too but I'll have to wait until someone dies before I can get another one. 9 is all I can handle right now.

I got my VT from a locally owned petstore. I got my Mustard Gas from Petco. All the rest came from BettySplendens. The HMs were bred by Victoria and the CTs were bred by Suporn Khumhom (BlueBetta.)
