that's why, when i go to the pet store on Tuesdays, they usually only have red Veils, or blue veils. because those are the most common ones, and everyone grabs up the cool-looking ones, like the yellows, orange dals, butterflies, ect. poor red and blue guys. D:

That's fantastic! I bought a female a while back and she died the next day. When I went back to get another fish, the salesperson told me I didn't have to worry this time because they had just cleaned up and changed the water and removed the dead ones.. I'm really careful now and look for smaller hopefully younger and newer fish.

That's a store that seems to actually care. The bettas in my local store are shoved on three narrow shelves and you have to dig to see them all. Everyone gets bumped around and pushed up real close in their tiny little cups :(.
There's another store farther away that displays on their plant tanks, which is pretty but they never have a big selection so I never make the trek there.

Pet Lover's has theirs on this cute twirly shelf thing, kinda like a spice rack. no one is too close to anyone, and they're all displayed at once. :3 it's really cute. also, they're right next to the register, so the staff can keep people from fighting them!
