My first two, Shruikan and Glaedr I got at the LFS I work at and they come from a place that imports them as far as I know. We often get really nice fancy ones in stock!
The Petco in my town (Taunton) had nothing. So I went to a bigger petco up north in Avon (closer to boston) and they literally had TONS of bettas. I saw the little end cap display and was like "hm". Then I started looking for versa tops and noticed a pile of CT females on the fish desk. I asked the guy if I could scope them out... found the little girly that I got... then I made the mistake of turning around.... along the top of their display tanks they had piles and piles of fancy bettas... I found Thorn on one of them. There were seriously like almost 70 fish I'm not even kidding. I would have taken many more if I had tanks ready to go. But since I only had the one more divider for the ten and two spots left in it... I had to be good. Tho I think I might have to get a tank for spawning and get going on that because this is what I woke up to today...


Lookit those bubble nests! They are battling for her love! Maybe I should name her after a heroine who had two people battling for her... can't think of one at this exact moment... LOL

Anywho. Yeah Thorn is 100% male. He is so trying to impress the female next to him and the bubble nest he built as well as his gill flaps and such assure me he is all man! lol

LittleBettas: you are lucky to have such a boyfriend! A 100 gallon sorority would be amazing. I'm planning to get a few more females and have a ten gallon sorority going once I'm ready to start breeding.

Thank you! Next on my list of decor for them is some small terracotta pots decorated with silk flowers. They will each get their own to be able to stay hidden from each other if they so choose. They have already calmed down with the flaring and seem to be used to their neighbors!

Wow sounds like they settled in nicely. I love it when you get a betta and they do that. It makes being paranoid so much less stressful.

Those are some impressive bubble nests! How about naming the girl Carmen? I wouldn't call her a heroine, but she certainly had two men battling over her. Or Helen as in Helen of Troy.
