^ same with petsmarts! i love my job and am so proud of what i do. i'm there to make a difference and to show that there are people who work there that actually care.
it does honestly depend on who the managers and who the people are that work at the petco or petsmart. if they're full of people like me, who actually take care of the fish, bettas, and care about them then it's awesome! lol. but if they're just there for a job then probably not..
but yeah, the blue water used at petsmart is supposed to help prevent fungal/parasitic infections and be the conditioner. personally, i don't like it. you can barely see the fish, and it makes people who don't know stuff think they need crazy special water. lol.
and the cup size all depends on the company/store. i've seen cupped bettas at LFS that were half the size if not less than petsmart's and petco's cups. oh, and TECHNICALLY the bettas are only supposed to be in those cups for about a week. cuz apparently they should all be sold by then...
that's one thing i don't agree with.
