Best petsmart/petco finds?

Mine was the guy in my avatar. when i got him he was all white though. xD kinda sad but excited he's changing colors.

He's not quite hmpk, but almost(just a few degrees short when in full flare).

He always had a bubblenest going that i hate wrecking during water changes.

what about you guys? anyone find something stunning at their local petsmart or petco?

My walmart never has anything good(i check everyday though lol).
My petsmart usually takes pretty good care of their bettas, when i went and got this guy they were just finished doing water changed. ^^
I rarely find one that makes me just /have/ to bring it home though xD.

I found my crowntail Jagger (that's him in my avatar) at Petsmart a month ago. He's my first betta, and I think he's pretty darn cute. :) He has lots of attitude and was feisty even when he was in his tiny Petsmart cup.

Bambi, the guy in your avatar is sooooo cute, he looks like he's wearing black pants haha!
All of my guys have been from petsmart (except one i got at a terrible petco XP). My two best finds were these guys:
This boy is my all time favorite, his name was Vincent. He was a silvery blue-grey grizzle veiltail. He was absolutely stunning, his scales and tail were soooo shimmery, I've never seen another quite like him.

And this is my orange halfmoon, Sullivan. Orange is such a hard color to find, and even harder to find on a halfmoon, and then it's almost impossible to find that combo in a pet store, but i found one!!!!!

I don't have and petsmarts/cos that sell fancies, so I have to rely on Big Al's or mom'n'pop shops. I do sometimes find some amazing looking bettas though, like Kryptonite :)

And Raja was one of the most recent surprise finds from Petsmart:

Lovely fish everyone :o

I got my betta Mr Jingles from Big Al's. I love that shop because it's completely filled with fish, so fish is their specialty. They take good care of their fish (including bettas) I am going to Wal-Mart and PetSmart soon to get another betta, and if I don't see any, I'll go back to Big Al's. It's highly recommended.

Courage the purple butterfly was from Petsmart when they first started selling dragonscale and halfmoons. He was sold as a dragon scale, but I really don't see the strong coloration as I do in others. He just seems to be a faded purple. He's also our resident tumor boy.

And little Jacuzzi, whom I don't really know the coloration of. He's definitely a butterfly, but the fins closest to his body are red and his body is black(as with the edges of his fins). He is probably an over halfmoon since he still can't flare all the way, but is already at halfmoon with extra finnage.

This is my pretty boy from Petco! He is a Copper Dragon Halfmoon! Sadly, he has started tail biting and now he has a case of fin rot. It's not to bad so hopefully he will heal up nicely.

There were three at Petco yesterday that I just had to bring home. But I sadly I can not afford three more tanks, three more heaters and three more betta's.
