Just checked back . .. smiling at everyone who has the same taste as I do .. especially for that black and metallic one and the blue-green-black-whatever you'd call it!

I just found an aquarium store that sells imported bettas in large mason jars of crystal clear water, each with substrate and a plant in the jar. I can't decide if I want to buy my next one there, splurge on Aquabid (which I have never done) . ... or rescue another sad sap from Petco which is dangerously 5 minutes from my place. Then again.. . maybe I have enough little "sad saps".

Mursey, you're lucky you stumbled upon a place like that. The nearest place that sells quality Betta Fish and takes good care of them is my Petco by my campus. Otherwise, while at home, all stores that carry bettas don't do too well. :(

Yes, that store with the nicer betta set-ups was about a 30 minute drive away, so not too far but not around the corner. (Arizona Nature Aquatics, I think they were called.) They seem to specialize in aquatic planting but I read that more experienced aquarists said things like "don't go to any other store" . . basically the water is crystal clear, it's a small business run by people who love the hobby, and they have all those contemporary tanks without edges like the ones that look like Fluval tanks and such. They don't specialize in bettas but it wasn't a surprise to see that they treated them nicely. I found them on Facebook and it looks like they post whenever they get new bettas, and they post photos. I am going to keep my eye out now. :) They also helped me because I needed to learn a little about what kind of filter I could get with bettas.

I notice that all the fish on aquabids are sold for breeding, would it be wrong to adopt one just to have him floating around?

I know it would be an expensive fish, but considering all the money we spend anyway on them, why not splurge on the fishie itself?

I noticed a lot of hem (at least the one I wanted) have very strange shipping policy that I don't really understand, like you have to arrange for pickup from the trans-shipper... anyone know what this means or have done it before?
