Do pet stores usually have white male bettas?

Not necessarily albino white.. But I really want a white M betta of any kind. I have never even looked at the males, always going for the females, so I'm lost for this. I just have a white female and would like to divide my tank and have one of each because I just love those. Mostly because my rocks are black and I have black and white decor in the tank.. They stand out beautifully.

By pet stores I mean Petco, Petsmart, Petsupermarket etc.

Thanks guys! I'll look anyways. I'm sure any betta is just as cute if I don't see a white one!

My Petco almost always has at least one white male, although blue and red seem to be the most common colors.

The PetSmart I work at always has white bettas. Usually their bodies are pure white, and the fins have a splash of color. The betta I am getting friday is white with one red fin and a few gray spots on his body. You can always call before you go and put the betta on hold if they have a white one. :]

I find that Petco definitely has a more impressive selection of bettas than Petsmart, and I have seen a white one on occasion there. You should check there. Or, if you could find a quality aquarium store in your area, they often have some exotic bettas there.

I have seen them a few times usually at petco...There was this one once even his eyes were white.

Pet stores sell them so young though that they normal will color up as they age...I bought a white doubletail with a very little bit of black on him...(panda) and now he is almost completely black.

If you can find one are you going to spawn him with Heather?
