Petsmart.

So I was chatting with a guy today who works at petsmart and I was questioning him on why he now had the feamles together in the tank. He said it was store policy because they are getting two new types of Bettas. Halfmoons and dragon scales so hazahh for that :D granted after that we started on a 10 minute discusion about bettas heater vs non heater. But yay for new bettas though :D

I dont think it is. It might be just that store:/. Plus petsmart always had Halfmoons. Well most of them.

Aw.. lol
I just foamed at the mouth for nothing then.
Our petsmart has crowntail males and female and male vtails. (So far as I've seen. We do have one female from there that I'm wondering about.)

I'm jealous of those of you with petcos around! We dont have one nearby.
A local pet store had AMAZING bettas at one time.. recently went back and they all looked like walmart fish.

My PetSmart does the thing with the females in one tank and in the cups. It only has VT m, VT f and CT too.

@xMandy: Thats sad!:/ Why dont you ask to come and help out once in a while. Like when you get a chance.

@KayDowson:I have been to one petco and i think that the bettas could have been better looking. i was looking for my first HM betta and found him, but i see a very pretty marble HMPK and just didnt get him:/ I regret it though for not getting him.

My Petsmart only carries veils and crowns so I'm pretty excited. The closest Petco to me is about 40 minutes away in town. My Petco is kinda good on selection but not care though...I haven't found one place around me that takes care of their bettas. -sighs- Maybe one day I'll open my own Betta shop...its been hovering in the back of my mind at least.

I figure this isn't going to migrate to Canada :P

My Petsmart keeps male and female VTs in separate cups, and male CTs in cups. I think there is the occasional female CT but with their fins clamped up it's hard to tell.

I'm thankful that most of the fish employees actually have some knowledge about them. A few people have been stopped over the past couple months for either overstocking (main cause) or incompatible tank mates.

No luck with proper care for bettas though, the only people I see getting bettas are older ladies who get 3-4 of them for a possible sorority.

If I see any store HMs or even DTs or DbTs...omg...I don't know if you guys will see me anymore. LOL
