My petco has gotten a few of the new bettas. They also got a new set up away from all the other fish with their own shelves and things like that. :D

My Petco's bettas are ok... hardly any dead ones... they are all pretty healthy. Most males build bubble nests. However, it could be better. One great thing though is THEY HAVE A HUGE VARIETY! It's clear they don't get all brothers and sisters because they have plakats, half moons. ect. My friend got a pure white crowntail there a while ago. BEAUTIFUL! Anyways, I always come out of Petco with a new betta (as long as I have room) :) I love them! So... if you catch a new shipment they're all gorgeous!

I went to petco today, they have the new set up now. I think it looks worse. before they were on a shelving system alone that was like stairs, now they are in little cubbies and it just seemed more complicated to me.
I am still searching for 'the one' - most of them at petco today were dead =[

My Petco has had all of those for about 3-4 weeks now (: There's one lonely King left, the rest are all HMKings, for the ridiculous amount of 30 bucks.

Those poor halfmoons kings :( If they're big, then the cups used to hold regular bettas would be too small for them, they probably wouldn't even be able to swim forward... just float. If the prices were lower, they'd be sold faster, and wouldn't have to stay in a cup for so long.

There are a lot of veriaty at my petco wichis great! But a week ago I went and they were all healthy and I went this week to get some more gravel and the cups were dirty and there was this one female you could se her internal organs and her fins were clamped shut and she was the size of a dime! Poor little girl.

Actually, the HMKings are the same size as the Kings x.x; They're just big HMPKs, not big HMs. There's almost no difference between them and the Kings besides the occasional nice coloration. That's why they stay there so long. 30 bucks for a fish that looks the same as a 10 dollar or so one.
