Im new to having fish and my 5 gallon tank is finally almost done cycling. Its all set up with live plants so im just waiting on the amonia level to go down since its at .25 right now. Ive started looking at where to buy a betta. I have done research and i understand the reasons not to get a betta from a chain store like petco. I started looking online at breeders and found some i really like but it would have to be shipped to me. My parents dont like the idea of shipping a fish or spending that much money on one fish. For the ones i was looking at plus the cost of shipping it would be around $30. My mom is insisting we just go to petsmart or petco even though i explained why we shouldnt. Does anyone know of any good places i could go that are near cedar park/austin Texas? My parents are completely against shipping because of the cost, even when i said i would pay for it. I honestly dont know what to do. Also heres the betta i really wanted because hes so pretty. Im going to keep trying to find a way to get this one but im also trying to find a back up plan.
