geezus! and i thought my local pet store was overstocked with a veil in every tank with peaceful tankmates and CTs on every spot of the turny thing. x-x

also, nya~ :P $9.99 at Pet Lover's here for an HM. but you usually get Deltas, instead. still. same price for a 'short tail halfmoon', too.

That's how they do it at mine too! When I went to buy new stuff for my betta the other day, I was looking at some tank accessories and just happened to notice some betta cups basically hidden on top of the shelf. The view of them was blocked by all of the stuff on the shelves. I felt really bad for them =(

Wow, if I was not going to be an ichthyologist when I grow up, I would open up a quality betta shop.

Whenever I'm there, I try to move some of the fish that are less noticed and doing badly onto the shelves

If I see two males flaring at each other like there is no tomorrow, I simply rearrange the set-up of the cups.

That looks like the Petco here in Concord, NH!
They are absolutely overstocking!! What happens to all the bettas that don't sell? Do they just... sit around to die?
I saw the saddest thing the other day... the betta fish in the jars had huge chunks of food floating all at the top. And they were WAY overfed. I made a point to tell the employees to stop overfeeding them and change their tanks. I do not support this at all.
Oh yeah, and petsmart's quality of betta around here are worse than petco's. They're all rather sickly and... well, older-looking. :(

My petco usually has about 10 fish, usually at least one is dead. 1out of every 3 I have gotten there has died, even with the BEST care possibly given. It is sad :'(
