I don't know where you live in Texas but I'm sending 17 Bettas to Midlothian this weekend for the IBC show. If you were close enough to catch the show and stick around for the auction afterwards I'm sure you could pick some Beauties up for a decent price. I think it safe to say there aren't any sellers on Aquabid that I've heard anything bad or suspicious about in a while. It just depends on whether you want your money to stay in the states or buy overseas and pay for the transshipping. Many US based breeders like myself offer a show quality or pet quality Betta at a fairly reasonable price with shipping fees a lot less that buying abroad. Once you make a bid you can wait for the auction to end or do the buy it now option if they have one so no one else can outbid you. Then just wait for a response from the seller. In my case I will send the buyer a paypal invoice to pay for their purchase. If you don't have a paypal account it's easy to set one up or you can make arrangements to pay by check or money order. Other than waiting on weather delays the majority of all transactions go very smoothly.
If chard doesn't have it (he has a bit of everything though, so there's a good chance he will), I'm sure someone else will.
There is an auction at the end of show's for the breeders entering to sell the fish they sent to the show if they so wish. You would probably find something there, just depends on the price you are willing to pay because I am sure some will go for a pretty penny!
I can't tell you where the show is at though, haven't paid that much attention.
they look real, the white part might either be dragon scaling, or the part of the eye that swivels it in the socket. i used to have a DS plakat who had "anime eyes" complete with a tiny bit of DS on each eye that looked like the little light glint that just about EVERY anime character has, regardless of the actual lighting in the scene.
Where in Midlothian? I might have to go, although it would be an hour drive.
Would I be able to by any yellow, pink or green halfmoon fancy bettas? It's my birthday and I would really love a betta like the ones I see on the Aquabid site.

La Quinta Inn
1165 Hwy 67W, Alvarado, TX 76009 It's actually in Alvarado and you would have to be there at the time the auction took place. Some of them can be had for $5 to $10 while some of the better ones or 1st place winners and Best of variety and Best of show will of coarse bring a higher price. You could email Kayla and ask her what would be the best time to see the show and auction. firstname.lastname@example.org. I would have no idea what colors other members are entering but I'm sure out of the 200 plus Bettas that will be there you'll find something that catchs your eye.
