I don't have a Heater its warm here. She has been doing fine until today when i noticed she was swimming weird on her side a bit and up at the top and been swimmign around a bit as well shes a confusing little fish lol. but she is eatting good im gonna fast for a few days and see if that helps. The guy at the pet store told me to feed him a small amount of a pea and mush it up real small for the baby and also told me to hold off on feeding her for a few days she may be constipated. Well see how she is tomorrow.

You need a heater for babies, they need to be in temps of 83-85, nothing less or they can get sick and die. Babies are not as strong as adults.

So, that would encourage them to have more bettas and care for them in the same manner they have been, because it would be more profitable to them.

I hate it how people don't take care of bettas.... Just because they don't have a voice and they can't express their sadness. If someone saw a dead hamster in its cage everyone would care but a betta? People just don't care...

I work at PetSmart, and my store is VERY well managed. Our betta's are not stacked on top of each other. They have frequent water changes and are fed well. Most everyone who works there has a fish tank, and is concerned for the well being of the fish when they are at work and at their new home. I have worked there for a year, and I have never seen a dead fish on the sales floor. We encourage heater usage, and tanks that are at least a gallon. I will not say they are necessarily "happy", but they are well cared for. I also do not see that many bettas returned dead either because we do try very hard to educate new pet parents about their fish.
