Well I was figuring when it came time to get rid of them that I could get some bags from Petsmart or somewhere. I really have no clue where to get the heat packs. I don't know any local self owned fish stores around here
I don't think Petco or Petsmart takes bettas from people.
Thanks Gen, I was planning on making a thread there, so you won't have to worry about it. I will have pictures, so everyone who will get a fish will see what it really looks like before they get it.
