Smile Petsmart bettas

What kind of bettas does petsmart normally sell? I'm curious because there's gonna be one opening in St. John's this weekend, and I'm hoping for something a little different than a VT or CT.

Also, can anyone tell me what their bettas normally cost in Canada?

I've only ever found one not VT or CT at petsmart ... which is sad. It depends on location more than anything, but the majority you're gonna see are CTs and VTs.

Yeah mostly CT's and VT's a lot of females possibly a few HM females mismarked. Kai's a Petsmart betta and the only super active betta.

CT and VTs, and usually just red/blue ones at that. Sometimes you'll get lucky and find something cool, though.

Just like most people said VT and CT. The ones near me usually have a wide variety of colors. I once found an all orange one with hints of light blue (my avatar pic). Sadly he died from something suddenly a couple of months ago. But the point is they do have pretty bettas depending on the store.

My local petsmart only has female veiltails, crowntails (like ten at the most, if I'm lucky), veiltails (way too many) and I've found a few plakat males mistaken as females.
Females are $3.99, but I think with the petsmart card thingy they are $3.48. Male veiltails are $4.99, crowntails are like $7.99.
My petsmart doesn't have that great of variety, I don't know about other petsmarts. The females are ALL usually blue. The veiltail males are different colors, and crowntails are usually blue and red.

Hopefully, your petsmart has some amazing variety!

Edit: I'm in Canada as well, so these prices are probably close to what you would be paying.
Be prepared for some horrible conditions... petsmarts aren't that great at taking care of their bettas (in my experience). I've gotten 8 out of my 10 bettas there, and the majority of them had horrible living conditions, and saving them was one reason I got them.
