I hate to say this.... but if you talk to the store manager and things don't change at your local store, I WOULD NOT buy another fish from them. Not even a rescue. And here's why:
If a big box store sells ANY fish (even a tortured, abused betta rescue that they helped create), a computer reads the code at check out: 1 Betta Fish sold. A computer automatically orders to restock that 1 betta... so the horror continues.
Please understand I don't want any animal to suffer. Unfortunately, it's very simple and plain: at the scan of a barcode... the more we buy, the more they will die. Please, please, please don't give your money to stores that abuse their animal stock.
Buy from pet store who care about their animals, or from breeders. Please.
