Really they're just making less money with the wrong information.

Betta Bowl $15
VS
2 gallon Critter Keeper $7
Small bag of gravel $4
Live plants $6
Heater $15
Betta Food $3
Water Coniditoner $7 (big bottle)
Corner filter with pump, tubing, control valve $20

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Like I said above...they'd make more money with the correct info.

^^^ i think in many cases its just "i know everything, and im gonna tell you what to buy so i look smart" attitude too.... in my pet shop they really do know their stuff. all the employess have experience and love animals and always give the 100% correct advice. i love it. but i can really understand ye're points if an employee has no clue... sometimes i think they want your fish to die fast so you come back and they can tell you you need this and that next time lol....
