Exclamation Never thought I'd see this!!!!!

so went to petco today and, against my beliefs, bought a baby betta. and guess what? he is a doubletail halfmoon baby! amazing. i also bought a halfmoon doubletail male and something i am sure none of you have seen.

went to the fish and towards the back i see two bettas in a cup SPAWNING!!! I WAS FURIOUS.
so i bought the male and the female in the cup with the eggs and quickly seperated the female and left the male in with the eggs. it was terrible right now the male is taking care of them but the female is pretty beat up. no fins at all. she is black coloring and the male is white. will post pics once i get settled.

Oh my! I think you beat the record for most bettas bought at a store at once! Congrats though, and good luck with those babies!

I can't believe they were spawning in a betta cup! Never heard of that one before.
