dragon bettas

I just want to know what you guys think are the chances that a non chain fish store would get 3 yellow dragon female bettas. I also just want to know what you guys think about dragon bettas themselves.

Dragons = awesome!

But VERY low chances...you must order fish you want and it's NOT cheap.

The fish store I got the betta in my profile pic was in this situation and the fish store sold just regular veiltails.

I usually see a few dragons at my petco... Not sure about small business stores though. You can ask- sometimes they'll order them for you. Or you can just get them off of aquabid...

I dont think anyone asked for them as a special order. I think they came with the others as just a normal stock refill.

Like I said before they only sell petstore quality male and female veiltails. An example is like how I saw a few red males with red irredesence (if I spelled it right).

I got my dragon at my LPS. Haven't really seen any at Petco or Petsmart.

But mine was only 20. Which is expensive by my LPS's prices. Halfmoons are usually about 14 in comparison.

Mine's orange, not yellow, but similar. c: They usually have quite a few dragons. So definitely just ask for an order. My store even OFFERED to order any fish for me~

Slightly edited. But only texture wise.


So just ask, maybe.

Perhaps they had a new person ordering and they did it to see what they were? idk... But I think dragons are awesome! Never seen one at a Petsmart, but my little local aquarium store has a continual flow of mettalic dragons, males only from red/gold, coppery and almost a steel color for $9.99. Saw one as a steel type crowntail that looked really cool, but I didn't have the space...
