Post pictures of your pet store bettas!

I think a lot of people (especially new members) are intimidated by "pet store bettas" or even think they're boring. Of course, many are, but I know tons of you have rare, extraordinary finds. So let's see! And to make things better, how about we post where we got them from?

Here is my recent boy. He's from a PetCo. I had my eye on him for about a month, and then I got a tank set up and I purchased him. Ever since the first day he's been getting more vibrant and unique coloring.

He is a metallic green/blue HMPK. He has dragon white scales on his face, and has the black speckles. On his tail he has yellow & blue stripes.

I can't wait! C:

this is rio grande. sadly he died wednesday.


this is nereus my marble boy. he is a lot more black now and he has a red cap.

most of my bettas are petstore buys. I think they are beautiful. My goal as a breeder is to breed beautiful petstore bettas and watch people ask"they are from petstore parents?!?!"

I got Magellan, my VT, from Petsmart about 8 months ago. He's always exploring (hence his name) and won't sit still so this is the only decent pic I can get of him.

Magellan


I got Rambo and Dutch about a week apart from Petco. I've only had them about a month or so and they share a divided 10 gallon. Rambo is my mellow DT who shares his side of the tank with 2 ghost shrimp. Dutch, on the other hand, is my very feisty HM who's a complete show off and loves all the attention.

Rambo


Dutch


I'm currently in the process of cycling my new 5 gallon and can't wait until it's ready, so I can add a new pet store boy to the family!

Hello, Im new to this forum, been reading posts for a week or more, I would like to post a pic of my mothers day walmart rescue. I've followed directions, but maybe my lack of computer knowledge. When I click on insert image, a window pops up with explorer user prompt asking for a url??? Can someone help me??

Thank you

Go to "post reply" at the bottom underneath the last comment.

Click on it. Then click the black paper clip above the text box.

A window will pop up. Click on "Browse..." and choose the image you would like. Click "Upload". It should pop up the image (not the actual image but the name of the image) below that portion. If it doesn't, it didn't upload, so try reformatting it into a .jpg or try again.

Then you can add as many as you like! Click out of the box when you're done. :3

Also, if you click out, click on the paper clip thing again. Then you can hit "Manage attachments" which means it'll take you back to that pop-up box, or you can click on an image name. Once you click it, it will insert it wherever you want. If you do not insert the image, then it will show up on its own at the very end of your post.

Good luck! C:
