Wow... okay, that's a lot of replies, honestly didn't think I'd get that many ;p Thanks all of you guys!
The bettas at the PetCo I saw all looked fairly healthy, there were the different tails pretty much all over, didn't see just CTs on top & VTs on bottom =) All of the cups had crystal clear water, no food at all. So I think they probably do it like how aokashi and puppyrjjk said they do. I did notice though that the King Bettas each had their own fancy shelves they sat on... Honestly, I don't think I would trust getting a chain-store's CT betta, because it's a LOT harder (at least for me) to spot fin rot on them than it is like a HM or Delta betta.
I think I'm glad that I bought a betta at a small family-owned store (I absolutely love the owner, she also keeps HER pets there... it's a reptile store... but some of the critters that she rescues, she'll let them heal at her shop, and then she'll get attached to them & keep them. That's how she got her teal betta, Spot. He was white with 1 spot & had been put with another betta, so she rescued him & he was all torn up. By the time he was ready to go back for sale, she got attached to him & he had turned into a dark beautiful teal)
For God so loves the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life!
