Wow...

Went there today, and picked up 3 bettas: the two HMPKs and a solid blue HK/SDeT/DeT that I thought was a plum-purple. Bought the blue guy only cuz I thought he was purple, and now I feel too bad to take him back.. At least he is really pretty, but I already have a blue, black, cellophane, and white SDeT. Oh well.

So, looks like my betta family has increased from 3 to 6 over night. Might have room for maybe one or two more--tops.

I'll have pictures of my poor impulse control--or rather, my new guys, by tomorrow!

The beach cities of LA. Not all that far from you, but quite a hike to check on a whim.

Not gonna lie, when I went in today, the quality wasn't what it was when I went a couple days ago, and one of the guys there kinda gouged me on the price of the two HMPKs. I had a good repore with the guy there the other day, but not so much the guy there today, so I kinda had a feeling something like that would happen. In all fairness though, he at least knew what he had and explained why he was charging so much for them. But, still a lot less than AQ. Ended up paying a little less than $13 per betta.

I can get you their phone number tomorrow if you'd like.

That would be great.

And what beach city lol. c: I'd like to know where more fish stores are really since there are none up this way. However I'm in the OC 4 days a week so its really not too far to go :D And yeah 13 per fish is fine for me as long as they seem to be nice stock. I'd love to buy from AB but I can never convince myself that the shipping price is worth it.

@GreenTea: it just means I can't tell which of the 3 it is.

The place is actually in Torrance. It is simply called Tropical Fish. Nearest intersection is Hawthorn and Sepulveda. GoogleMaps probably has a phone number actually. As with most places, Fridays and Saturdays are probably your best bet, but call first to ask about their stock--see if they have what you are looking for.

Oh cool! Yeah, it's about 2 minutes from my apartment.

It is in the same center as Gable House Bowl if that helps

I'll have pictures up later today when I can us my girlfriend's laptop. Right now, I don't have a computer, so all of my computer needs are being fulfilled by my iPhone. Well, not all, but 95%.

Took some pics last night--not sure how well they came out but we'll see.

I'll see what I can do about pictures of the shop. Might be hard, though--I don't have any money anymore as a result of buying Prince (well, and the other two to be fair to him), and know I'm going to walk out of there with another one if/when I go back in!
