Hi there, I recently got into taking care of bettas and right now I have 2 veil tails that i love. A turquoise one named Edward (because he glimmers in the sunshine lol) and a mostly white bodied with some black coloration that I named Mr. Panda.
Anyways, So I live in the OC, Anaheim specifically and I spent most of my day today going to local pet stores, Petco, Petsmart and a local fish store I found on google. I know that recently Petco started carrying a wider variety of Bettas but I didn't have much luck today and the more exotic kind really were unhealthy or had disappointing colors. Though at the local fish store I went to I saw some surprisingly pleasant looking ones, namely a couple white bodied red finned delta/super delta dragons (they were labeled as halfmoon :<). I would've bought them on the spot but what i really want is a dragon halfmoon or something equally exotic and pretty :).
So, my question is, besides bidding on Aquabid and buying my bettas online, is there any other source I can go to directly that I can preferably drive to? I'd like to find breeders in my area but google has failed me in that department. Any suggestions and tips will really help :)
