Local betta breeder?

Hey guys :3 I would love to purchase a betta but I don't want to support the way petstores tend to keep them. I also am trying to avoid shipping. So are you or do you know someone that breeds betta fish in the NYC area?

I'd check with lui aka Bettausa. i have two of his and they are great looking. He's a nice guy as well and very knowledgeable.

Bettasusa is on bettafish.com, but has been on the forum pretty spottily.

Oh, I'm looking for a pair/trio (m:f) depending on price of halfmoon plakats. Don't care too much what specific color they are, just that they're appealing to me, healthy, and young.

Will you start a thread to post pics? Or PM, or just in this thread?

Ok, Will start a new thread. Also may be attending the swap meet on Nov. 4. So that could be the venue to purchase the bettas if you like them. I guess i have to get pictures up asap.
