Petco and Petsmart totally label some of the bettas wrong. A few times this week I've been in both stores, and seen mislabeled ones. Saw 2 really pretty females I wish I had room to get. One day maybe I'll set up a sorority, I just have no more room now! :(
Great finds BTW and glad you could get a home for the male.

My $40 elephant ear only cost me $13 because he was labeled as a half moon or something.
I got 3 like that, cheapest one being 7 bucks. :D Also 40 is the online price, they are supposed to 50 in store.

Do they carry many Elephant Ears in Petco or Petsmart? I don't think I've ever seen one.

And if I'm not mistaken, I'm pretty sure while in Petsmart today, they had a veiltail labeled as a halfmoon. I picked that guy up, and was like hey! your no halfmoon!

They have labels for the elephant ears at Petco? I picked mine up at Delta price, because he is a Delta Tail like he was labeled as.

Wow you guys are lucky :) Our Petco/Petsmart actually has betta people working for them so I haven't been able to find any mistakes. (other then all the petsmart halfmoons which I really think are deltas.) The only mistakes I find are cups that were relabeled by employees to the correct type of fish mostly.

If you absolutely cannot keep him, I am sure there are plenty of loving keepers here that could take him off your hands :) But he is such a pretty boy it would be a shame you shouldn't keep him.
