What kind betta your LFT sell?

Post by addict2betta on Sat Sep 04, 2010 9:22 pm

I was wondering what kind of betta your local fish store has beside the usual veil tails and the round tails??
Here in Sacramento and in the bay area, you wont be able to find hmplakat and good colors hm. Females hm and hmplakat are impossible to find, only from the internet or members from certains betta club.

I can get male VTs, DT, PK and SD. But most of them will just be standard blues and reds And VT, HM, CT, SD, DT females but again most are just standard colours.

In Singapore there's only half-moons (I'm not sure about that, but at least they all look like my betta) and some veil tails!! And I can't find any females!! it's so sad... Sad

Its pretty much the same here in Seattle. All you can do is inquire about at the independent lfs. The HM with decent or better colors are rare, but I've seen a few.
Try to find a lfs that imports their Bettas. Good luck!

vt, dt, deltas, hms, cts and ugly poorly bred half giants in males. in females its mostly vts with some cts. then there is your pk males throw in as female for about 50% of the females avaiable.

Anywhere I go over here is the same story, red or blue VT's. I felt like I won the lotto when I found Chai a few months ago, a Cambodian!

Is it possible to buy from someone here at Paradise or are there restrictions?

No, I can. I just need room at the inn to become available or until I buy another tank. Wink

At the moment I would prefer to wait for room to become available rather than buy another tank. I want to change the 9g hex to a 10g rectangle and get some dwarf puffers in there. I hate the hex with a passion.

Although I have one housed in a hex I'm not thrilled with it. When money permits I'll divide my 10gl. and store the hex. IMO I think the fish would be happier in a rectangle as it gives them more swim space for the volume. Puffers are cool!

I hate the hex for selfish reasons! Smile I'm not thinking about the fish at all. I can see and watch them better in a rectangle.

Bit harsh whats the hex tank ever done to you Haha. I used to have one and if im honest i was more than happy to see it go. There a pain to stock with because they limit the swimming space and the surface area.

Here in Eastern USA (my little area, anyway) most places sell ONLY VT. The one store we have also sells CTs and Deltas (mine was a RT Delta) though as he gets older he's looking more like a super delta O.o

Anyway, that's about it. No HMs or anything like that unless there's a private breeder around here somewhere.

I think hexes are pretty but I personally never had one. ^_^ Complaints are understandable.

There not terrible but rectangles are alot easier to clean, stock and look at fish. Hexes are still better than biorbs my mum has one that she wont let me get rid of we have a load of breeding apple snails and 2 guppies i hate it and that really is hard to take pics of fish.
