WOOHOO Way to go petco :)

Well I haven't been to petco in FOREVER and I guess it changed ALOT.... Well I went there yesterday (To buy a pet keeper for a future betta.) and to my surprise their betta section was so differnet. Now they have almost selve like things all around the betta section that they keep 6 bettas on and a bunch. And something that's even BETTER is I read their care sheets and they ACTUALLY said they NEED a heater. Sadly they still say they only need 1 gallon...with weekly water changes..:( but all their bettas were ACTUALLY healthy too! and usually at my petco they are all sick except for the "fancier" bettas. So kinda happy :)

I like the new display as well. Although, the betta slooked really good last week, and this week they look HORRIBLE. Only the VT's of course, it's like they dont care about those ones at my petco.
but I think the fish are probably not AS stressed since they cant see eachother now.

I actually got my betta from Petco. He's quite a beauty and he was actually the exact type of betta I wanted. Totally didn't expect to get a MG crowntail at a Petco. Although there were a lot of different types, there were still about two dead ones hidden in the display =( . It still definitely looks much better than my local Petsmart or Walmart.

My petco has the shelves now too. It seemed like they went up overnight or something.

I also noticed that their selection has exploded. Where once there were only veiltails and the occasional crown, there are now doubles, super deltas, PLAKATS! and a wider selection of females.

Conditions are still bad, the occasional dead/dying fish, dirty water, but there are gems to be found now. Maybe one day they'll really get their act together... one can only hope.

My Bettas:
Strad

Garnet - Male Doubletail
Epsilon - Male Veiltail
Poseidon - Male Veiltail
Indigo - Male Crowntail

My petsmart is like that.. I only looked at bettas there a few times. the one time I lifted the ones in the back to see what they looked like, they basically had no fins left.

The petco near me has the new shelves too. I haven't looked in a while but the last time I was there you could tell they were about to start carrying more than just VT and CT because their price sheet had listings for about 10 different kinds.

At the Petsmart near me the betta section is really nice. They look really healthy (well as healthy as they can be for being in those tiny cups).
