This is a tough subject. For starters, my Petsmart takes great care of their fish. However, I have heard some of you say that their Petsmarts are horrid. So how can I support a good petstore if it is also a bad one (in a sense)?
This is one of those ageless questions. Some think that people should not buy and that will eventually fix the problem. While others think that we should buy the Bettas and it will not make it better or worse. While others still think, that enstead we must try to educate the public and the petstores.
I personally, think that it is better to try to educate the petstores as it will help everyone in the long run. Not only would the animals be treated properly, but new owners would learn how to take care for their pets by actually being informed by the petstores.
If one Petco took horrid care of their pets and the others did not, then that store needs to be educated. Not buying from all Petcos would not help. I think anyway.
This topic has many different tactics. I really do not know what the right answer is. They all have vaild points.
Bettas - Giovanni (HM), Burly (HMPK Giant), Potato (EEHM), Vesper (HMPK).
