My local PetSmart has great decorations, but they can be pretty dumb about their placing of the males. They put them to where they try to fight each other, so I always try to scoot them apart or move them discreetly. xD

My Petsmart in north Atlanta made those modifications to their betta area too...before the cups were still in the same spot up front, but just stacked up willy nilly. I like the new racks they have to hold them - and hopefully it means a more reasonable stock level since I don't think the new racks hold as many as they usually had when the cups were just stacked.

The only good thing about PJ'S PETS in west edmonton mall... Is the betta wall. Although I think it needs to be a foot shorter so people can see the top ones xD

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Shadyr I'm in atlanta too, and noticed the change a couple days ago at my petsmart. Like the new display, and their bettas were actually really beautiful and healthy (so far)!

I barely resisted buying another betta, but I did get 2 new toys- one was a 'betta treat dispenser' with bloodworms, daphnia, and mysis in one dispenser. Hopefully people that buy this will know when to give such treats and not overdo it. The other toy was a small automatic pellet dispenser, which is not as bulky or expensive as some of the other dispensers out there. It only feeds once per day, but could be useful when I leave town (though I'd have to get 14 more, since I have 15 bettas, all separately:))

My petsmart is (finally) using my recommendations as a pamphlet for care so they are getting some stuff right:) Glad to see the changes.

I like the new racks they are in! That means that they can't overstock, I hope. The males couldn't see each other, which was great.

My walmart doesn't sell Bettas, and I got mine from a local shop...Petsmart still just carries about 20 of them.

One of my local petsmarts just got this set up, the other 3 haven't yet (Yes lots of petsmarts within 45 minutes of my house, lol. I have to say I like it a lot, theoretically.... they can't over stock etc. BUT this particular petsmart has about 40 males on the shelf next to the new set up all stacked on eachother...

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

I love the "Petsmart Rebellion"...I know that sentiment. :)
My Petsmart has many new fish as well, as does Petco, I'm in fairly rural east tennessee, so hopefully this is a chain-wide event to have reached down here. :)
Decor still is pretty bad though...but maybe that'll improve next. :)
