Purchasing Betta's

Anyone know of some specific places to go to try to find some nice Betta's for sale? Without going to over-seas suppliers?

So far, the only thing I've found has been aquabid.com... but even there, when it comes to the Bettas, a lot of the sellers are located in
Thailand. I've so far only been able to find ONE Betta (located in the U.S.) on aquabid that interests me.

Now I know I've seen suggestions like "check out the IBC web site for Betta breaders"... but it seems like just about every breader listed on their web site is for one reason or another not selling bettas at this time. A perfect example is Bettatalk.com. The owner/breader on that web site seems great with some interesting fish. But she's been busy with another project since April and doesn't appear to be selling at this time. And may others apper like they USED to sell bettas. But not now.

She has some pretty bettas and has a lot of good information on her site.

I purchased a pair of halfmoon blue butterflys from www.atisonbetta.com
He's in Thailand, but I had a good experience with him.
