I know what you mean, the aquarium stores near me get their bettas on fridays. I can't help but look at the bettas anytime I go to Petco. It's hard not to.
I've seen a silver veiltail with yellow eyes. I had thought about getting a baby betta but since I have two adults, I decided to try raising my own.
Oh, Thanks, that was one reason I got Cole, because of his markings and color. I love bettas that have an exotic appearence. I remember back in the 90s, when veiltails were the only bettas you could find in a pet store. Now halfmoons, crowntails and the like are more common.
The baby bettas are adorable though, can't help but smile at them.
