I am looking at females for Kaveh. You know. Brainstorming and stuff. And I think I want something like this girl as far as color/pattern goes:

http://m.ebay.com/itm/Live-Betta-Tropical-Fish-Imported-Black-Copper-Dragon-HM-Female-1-3-days-/311725431058?nav=SEARCH



I think I can get away with a female with lesser finnage since his fins are excessively branched as it is and he is a DT but I need to find a match with a spectacular topline.

I am really partial to black and partial dragons (if you couldn't tell, almost all my favorite females in the past have been some variation of black marble or black marble dragon). This female is definitely right up that alley, but she is definitely HMPK.

I am going back to Petco today because I need some cat stuff. By chance, was there anyone interested in a Petco betta from the last post I made about them and want me to look if they're still there?

You can also try to get them to price match online prices. Right now the Betta's are on sale online so you might be able to show them to website like this: Male Koi Betta | Petco Store and get the "sale" price for the fish. If anyone does want the fishes. I would love new fishes but I have zero money's lol.

Wilds: Wajok, Rutilans, Siamentorialis, Hendra
Leopards: Luna, Astrael, Dorian, Cullen, Gallifrey
Gargoyle: Cloudjumper
African Fat Tails: Nox and Lux
Bearded Dragon: Stormfly

I am talking about the bettas from this post... Or I suppose if anyone is something for a specific kind/variety that they would like me to keep an eye out for.

Tiny little koi betta. Skinny and sad... They have it the worst off since Petco prices them at $19.99. I don't know how people get discounts because I have never been able to get them to budge.



This one was quite interesting, dark blue except for a reddish purple head.



Photo doesn't do this one justice. This one is a very large plakat male He was pretty lethargic. I think I have seen him the last two times I came in, but I can't say for sure.



Nice vibrant red one. Looks like he chewed on his fins.



Red copper dragon PK.



I really love this one. Large handsome boy...



Liked this one a lot too. More colorful than most EEs I see. He appears to be going blind in one eye though.



Blue EE.



Nice metallic delta.



Shiny multi colored boy.



Yellow.



Another white-copper metallic. Not quite white but I don't know... Maybe he would look different warmed up and in clean water.



Pretty veiltails...





This one is a marble. His color is very faded but he has some faint speckles.



Another yellow.



This one was one of the worst off in the lot. He was very skinny and it looks like he has a bad case of popeye. Still very pretty fish, he is a deep purple with yellow fins. I would have gotten him but for how much they charge for EEs, I just can't afford it right now.





You can see the condition of one of his eyes here.



A lot of them like three below, extremely skinny yet sort of bloated. Also had a bit of a grey cast to them and were generally inactive. I would guess internal parasites or bacterial infection.
