Poor betta's at petsmart

I went to Petsmart and over half of the betta's there were missing parts of their fins and their water was dirty. I felt like crying after seeing that

Open your eyes
Now is the time

I visited my local PetSmart and PetCo last month. I have a thread posted on the forum about what I saw and what I did. Check it out. It is called "Oh no...trip to petsmart :( "

Hmmmm....I should do another 'betta-check' at the stores soon.

Ugh, I know how you feel! I do what misty1477 called a "betta check" every time I go to Petco, and every time I am horrified by what I see. It's disgusting the way they are treated.

Kindness and respect should be shown to all animals, no matter if they are furry, scaly, big, or small. Be a hero to the animals and GO VEGAN!

I just brought home last night a beautiful blue male with no caudal fin from PetSmart.
Usually the PetSmart around here isnt so bad, but yesterday it was horrible.

The petco i went to in bronx ny on the upper level on top of target had very nice betta fish:) i think tht one is the only one that has nice fish. The water was fresh and the bettas were colorful, alert and healthy. I admit there were a few that werent looking to hot but the majority were decent and healthy. The one place that should NOT sell fish is walmart!!!!!!! All the fish look so sick and most of the are dead and forgotten on the shelves!! I got my betta at petgoods and he was the healthiest one and he was very active!
