Yup, and that's definitely the case with this shop. This lovely piece of work couldn't even see how at least keeping his bettas in cups (yeah, cups would be an upgrade here, that's how bad it is) would help him sell more of them. My reasoning to him was in their little bags people can't even properly see them display their fins or get any ideas about their health or temperament. His response was basically, "wtf, its not like they're champion show dogs or something, they're dumb little $5 fish for kids to put in bowls." :< I turned around and walked out right then and haven't been in since. That was nearly 3 years ago now!

"The time has come," the Walrus said, "to talk of many things: of shoes—and ships—and sealing wax—of cabbages—and kings—and why the sea is boiling hot—and whether pigs have wings."

"But wait a bit," the Oysters cried, "before we have our chat; for some of us are out of breath, and all of us are fat!"
"No hurry!" said the Carpenter.
They thanked him much for that.

LOL, good one! To be honest at the time I was so shocked that someone who ran a LFS could think that way about any fish I couldn't think of a thing to say. That and I was trying really hard to fight the urge to snatch the nearest fish bag and run XD After all, he couldn't possibly have missed the poor guy if it'd die before he sold it, right?
