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
Well in Canada, you guys have Big Als which from the sound of what i keep hearing, they have beautiful bettas and fish. So Thats a huge plus! I wish we had a big al's!

I've never been to a Petsmart with Halfmoons, I've been to PetCo, but never a petsmart. So hopefully they carry this everywhere. Halfmoons aren't even listed on Petsmart's website, so I doubt they carry them in a lot of places.

I would go help out at the fish store but it's too far of a drive. Thought it was worth it to get a good Betta, but now it's like going to the next towns walmart lol.
I'll ask if I go back and they're still like that.

If Petsmart is getting HM's for a cheap price then I may have to start prepping a new tank.

Yeah I work at Petsmart we only have VT male/female and CT males. But we had some tags printed off with "dragonscale" and "halfmoon" bettas I think 8.99 for dragon and 6.99 for halfmoon. I've been trying to contain my enthusiam since my co-workers don't exactly have the betta bug. None of us know if we are actually getting these guys in but we have been getting all sorts of new betta tanks lately.. I'm hoping!

That is true, BigAls has an amazing selection of fish because it concentrates on fish stuff. The only downside is that it's pretty expensive there, and last time I went there, they only had nicely *coloured* bettas, not HMs or anything :C

I will check again when I get a chance though XD...it's a pretty far drive T_T

I bought one and only one from PestMart. Never again.

Only small breeders for me from here out. I don't want to support that kind of treatment, and I don't want another fragile fish.

I'm glad it's working for you guys. I consider you lucky.

Well when you get the chance to go over there, ask them when they get their next shipment of bettas and just get their that day or a day after because you will have first pick of them.
