They sell their bettas in cups, but theyre mostly healthy, fed, and kept in clear water.
Besides writing to Petsmart and Petco, another way to help may be to shop exclusively at stores like this. Helps local business and takes competition away from the chains, telling them that we like stores with fish that are well-cared for!
yea! let's do this!
I'm going on a rescue mission TODAY! (my very first one, I'm so FREAKING EXCITED!!!)
