Last time I visited Petsmart, only females were in blue water, but they were treated horrendously while the males were fine... (SEVERE bloat, several dead, fin rot, dropsy... you name it.)
The "care team" might of ran out of prepared water for the rest of their bettas. Their lack care for these beautiful fish doesn't help the females sell. Working there, I've seen the males fly off the shelves and the poor females left to sit in cups for days on end.
I think I'll be making my 75 gallon into a betta sorority.
I'm in love with females. <3 My first fish, Sally, is a female and I love her to death. By my experience, they're more curious and loving. I have a stronger bond with her than Otis or Donald. (I sound crazy. xD)
Sally, I will always love you. You were my babygirl and the gateway to my bettabug. Thank you.
Ugh at the petsmart by my house the males are displayed all proud in the entrance way of the store, and the females are around the corner (in the back) and are $0.99 .. I almost bought like 29034 of them LOL
