Ah, I see. Yeah, I've been to both of those stores but not recently or frequently enough to recall the quality of their fish. I did get a red veiltail from that Petco a few months ago but he had a health problem I didn't notice and passed away pretty quickly.
Aww that's sad. :( My Ares has survived pretty well so far. Waiting till the treatment process is done for him before I make any calls on that. The Betta I rescued tonight, though, is a 50/50 chance atm.
Good to know I'm not the only stl person with a love for Bettas, lol. I haven't been to the Crestwood one, but all of my friends who have pets go on and on about it.
I live in outside of Pacific/Eureka. I haven't been to the Crestwood PetCo yet. But I strongly advise you to steer clear of the Petsmart in Sunset Hills. I bought a school of neon tetras two days ago to add to my betta, Flynn's, tank. As of right now, I have to sterilize the whole tank because everyone was wiped out by a columnaris infection that wasn't present before.
