Hey fellow Atlantans! I live in Marietta :P
The Petsmart in my area has gotten a lot better recently. They used to put bettas randomly on the front shelves in these tiny little stacked cups. When I went in they had WAY fewer bettas, they were actually in with the FISH instead of randomly placed in the front of the store, and the cups were pretty big!
I mean, it's not ideal - but it's a heck of a lot better than it was and the cups were mostly clean :3. I'm impressed, even if they do still have those stupid .5 or .33 gal tanks near the bettas...
The lady who works in the fish section there, however, approached us initially to ask what we wanted and when I said I was getting a betta she just left without a word on their care o-O. The last time I went in to get fish (tetras, I think...) they totally asked me what size my tank was before they'd sell them to me.

EDIT: Oh wow! They /did/ get new decor, and it's on the website, too. There's some awesome looking bright coral ornaments that would look awesome in my tank... whyy did they have to come out now? And Marvel Super Heroes! I want my fish to hang out with Iron Man! :P. Also some cute Dr. Seuss stuff and a few really cool natural-looking ornaments.

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 uexpensive 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.
How is the dispenser working?
