yea not knowing would concern me a bit too. though it did look like a few were males. they were just so darn cute. i have an extra 5 gallon tank, thought it would be really funny to have a baby betta in it.

plus not knowing what kind of betta they are, though i think most were veil tales or deltas, maybe a few halfmoons. But really hard to tell

oh neat, i have the extra tank so i might do a sorority tank of females. but not sure yet. most stores lately they haven't had a good variety of females or they didn't have any.

we have a few stores here, went to walmart too and the bettas just looked so dull in their color. there are two petcos near me and they have a good selection of bettas now. petsmart only has dragonscale, halfmoons and crowntails. to many pet stores near me, i swear i have been to about 5 of them in the last two days =p

My local PetCo has some pretty nice Bettas usually, but the next town over at their PetCo, they have much MUCH higher quality Bettas. They sell HMPK's, Doubletail Halfmoons and so soo many others. The only thing is alot of their Bettas get sicker faster, I think it's in their water. Alot of their fish (not just Bettas) seem to have scoliosis and their Bettas after a few days of being there seem to get ammonia poisoning much quicker then my local store and even my local WalMart (which does NOT care for their Bettas at ALL).

But yeah, you can find some really beautiful fish at PetCo, even PetSmart and WalMart occasionally get some really really pretty Bettas in.
