Oh okay! Yeah I have the hardest time finding a good pet store around me. The petcos and petsmarts are just awful. So many diseased bettas. :( I refuse to buy anymore from these stores. I'm happy you have a good store by you. :)
I'm actually in Urbana now, but I'll ask my LFS where they get there bettas. They have them all properly labeled by tail type, even, so they're not standard Petco fish. There a stunning DT HM for sale here right now. Probably some kind of colour or firm fault, but he's way fancier than anything I've ever seen at a chain.
