Actually, the animals (betta fish in this case) are not what brings in the big bucks. Their sales are only a minor contribution to what they represent: Supplies. Fish tanks, heaters, filters, decor, gravel, food, medication, lights, accessories..... THESE are what keep stores in business. Threatening not to purchase these items and telling all your friends who have pets not to buy from the store WILL get the store's attention. Bad publicity is a store's nightmare and they will try to fix that. Of course, we need the public support.
