Best place to get high quality betta?
I recently moved to Moscow Idaho and want to rekindle my passion for breeding betta. But I dont know where to start getting fresh stock. Where do you guys get your betta from for a decent price (cause I am a college student :p and low on money ). I also have never bought any fish online so I'm not sure how to do it. I would really like to breed halfmoons, crowntails, or plakats if that helps narrow it down. I do know of Aquabid but how do you search locally cause I dont really have the money to ship a fish from Thailand :-(

find out when your local fish stores get their shipments in. the most stunning bettas i have are from Petco of all places. if you get there on the same day as their shipment or the next, you usually have your choice of the primo fishies.

my avatar is a petco betta. good luck.

Try to locate a breeder or club near you. go to IBC Go to chapters and find one near you.

you could try

Bettas ship well so it would be an option for this species.

I have ordered fish online before and never had a problem.
