Where does everyone get their Betta's from?

I am so loving aquabid but I was also wondering if there were other places or do people just go to the local Petco or petshops to buy them?

I have a feeling this is going to be major new hobby.

hahaha, this hobby is super addicting. i usually buy my bettas at petco/petsmart :P i love aquabid, but my dad hates using his credit card, and i dont have one :P hahaha, and he doesnt like the whole idea of shipping cause of the extra cost, but he doesnt mind about shipping for computers.. hahaha, so its petco, petsmart, or a local fish store XD

i bought mines at a local pet store, they keep all their bettas really clean
compared to the walmart and petsmart in town. Also, i feel better giving my
$$ to them because they're local people
I've been wanting to go to Petco, but the nearest one is 40 mins to 1 hr away

Petsmart, Petco and Walmart primarily. I have 2 from a local LFS that imports them in from overseas. My husband said no more chain petstore bettas and that we would order them from the LFS until I saw 2 bettas that were light yellow at Walmart Sunday and had to get them. I had told him a couple of weeks ago that if I saw yellow bettas I was getting them. I should just order them but the fish in the chain stores are right in front of me!

Most do. My local wal-mart gets shipments in on Thursdays. Last time my folks went without me though the betta's weren't lookin' too healthy. We're planning to stalk them on Friday the day after shipping day to get the cream of the crop so to speak.
