    Does anyone know where I might procure an Orange Betta fish? We don't have many places where I live that sell fish, only Petco. I would absolutely love to get an orange one but it seems whenever I find someone with one for sale, the shipping cost is exorbitant.

    actually its possible to find one anywhere. If you want a better chance on finding it, then go to a store with a big selection of Bettas

    Yes, I'm located in the U.S., in Massachusetts. I guess I'll have to do some research and see if I can find any places in the area that specialize in fish, Bettas in particular.

    wow, modaz...totally gorgeous! But how do I know what the shipping will be? I'm an ebay buyer and seller, but Aquabid is pretty new to me.

    Shipping for that one is $5 to the USA, but then you have to pay the Transhipper fee and delivery within the USA. I think thats where the price goes up a fair bit.

    Well, I poked around on Aquabid and I found a gorgeous orange HM male betta, 3 months old, from a seller in the U.S. It's a bit of a splurge but the shipping is reasonable enough. The only petstore we have around here that I know of which sells fish is Petco, and everytime I've looked, I've never seen an orange betta. I plan to go to petco tomorrow, as well as Walmart, to look at some new aquariums. I know I am going to need them, especially since I plan to expand my collection. I will also check out their latest Betta supply (at Petco that is, not Walmart) I would love to get a beautiful blue HM male betta. But first things first....I need to get some new homes for these new Betta! Thanks guys for all your input and suggestions. If I get this orange one, my next quest will be to get an orange female. Orange is my absolute favorite color so I can't help it :)

    Hi, I got this new betta fish and I really love his colour so I thought I'd share it with you. I'm not an expert in betta fish, so I'm not sure if they are rare, but I do look after them in most pet stores I encounter and I've never seen an orange one before. :)
