Is there a reason why no pet stores spell female bettas? If you have any where did you get them from

I get them from Petco, usually they can special order females for me too if they are out

Every Petco, Petsmart and most LFS sell them.

Gotta love that companies will sell out your hobby for a buck these days without a care in the world. Next up glo common plecos!

On topic they're everywhere, but you're gonna have to sort through a lot of cups. At chain stores at least they tend to get shoved behind the males. Not sure I've been to a fish store that doesn't have at least a few female bettas.

Ask the store when they receive shipments they may be selling out before you go there. My local Petco is almost 50/50 stocked because ppl love to get the females due to their nicer temperament making it easier to house in a community.

if your local store doesn't have them, you can try ebay. but me personally, I'd only do US domestic ( shorter trip) . I was really impressed with the shipping treatment when I got my snail on ebay.

The chain stores usually sell them however I will say sometimes I have a hard time finding them. I like them my females seem to cause me less stress in regards to fin biting and rot.

Got mine at a chain store. $4.99. Vailtail/dragon scale. Females are the way to go.

I agree definitely ask the store you like to use. I usually use Petco and/or Petsmart because I don't have any dedicated fish stores near me, I know females are usually in cups as well but I have seen the stores put a female or two in one of their main tanks with other fish.

Edit: You can also try to buy online if you are willing to pay a bit more for healthy quality bettas. I got two male bettas from a breeder in Texas, he also sells females. The bettas I've gotten from him are a lot bigger than any I've seen at a chain store and they were juveniles. There are also a couple of other sites I trust.
