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!
