I got it bad for Bettas...

Note: This is taken from my local fish club forum, so you will not recognize the locations.

So, if you are reading this, you probably know the story of my platnum bettas from Thailand (they arrived DOA). Feeling miserable, I went to the Petco in Denhim Springs (IMO, best bettas around) to see what they had. They had some very nice looking "King" Bettas...much nicer then any I had seen at the other stores. So I picked one out and went to the register...it was a whooping $30 . Needless to say, I put it back. I went to another petco in New Orleans and picked up a nice pair of crowntails that I will breed (technically, my dad picked them up and gave them to me). So as a fish junkie, those king bettas were still in my head for a week...and you knew it was going to happen...I went back and got one. He is about 3 inches long, has a plakat halfmoon tail, and is literally about 3x the size of a normal betta. In the pictures below, you can see both it and the crowntail. And yes, I plan to breed it, but the problem is, my only source for females is Thailand . As usual, my pictures do not give my fish justice.

Hey, you're close to me! Which Petco in New Orleans did you get the fish from?

They are beautiful by the way.

My King betta never was able to breed. He was to big and too rough on the female every single time. I sure do miss that fish...maybe in the future.

For me its about fun, but I also would supply some of the local LFS with some good looking giants at a better price then what they go for at petco. As far as I know, I was the only person (fool, maybe) willing to pay the $30 price that Petco asks in the 3 weeks that they have had the fish.

i know that the petsmart in slidell has female bettas. it might be a bit of a drive though for you though, but its easier and cheaper then shipping them from thailand.
