I have saved a couple.
My point of view on saving them is that regaurdless of weather or not we betta lovers save sick ones, the stores will still re-stock because they are so cheap for the companies selling them to replace. Also, because there are many many people out there that are clueless to betta care and think that those .25 gallon bowls are okay because they say "betta" on them. They dont take the time to look them up and since that's the cheapest set up they can find they will more than likely buy that, and listen to whatever the pet store says on care, which generally is "oh, clean their bowls once in a while, feed them once in a while, they dont need a heater, and that .25 gallon bowl is plenty of room!"
