I agree with Okami, because normally, people at the stores know nothing. Like, even when I was in IL, the LFS was family owned and they knew nothing about the fish, ferrets, hamsters, birds OR bettas. It was upsetting and most of the animals were sick.

If you can't take proper care of something, don't have it.

I know I'm going back a bit, but peace lilies+bettas+puny vase=torture to bettas!!! Rant over. Working at a pet store would be so fun, I would be able to make sure the bettas would be treated properly.

Small unheated vases in general are torture.

my high school and collage days I worked for a store and made sure the fish were treated right. I didnt have a say on the order forms but my manager knew not to over flow us with stuff.

Overstocking on fish seems very commom problem. I dont get why you buy more than you can sell.

Its the coperate thing, they think they will sell them all so they over stock them. i think they trace the times they have the highest sells of them and overstock on those times so there will be plenty available. They see bettas like corperate America sees T.Vs. Order lots so you have one to seel for every one.

I think for overstocked tanks they need to learn proper water changes.

so many people say its ok to over stock. I hate overstocking, I admit when i was young and in the hobby i wanted everything in my tank. I have 2 Eheim canisters meant for 90 gallons on my 60 gallon because I keep Discus and water quality is everything.

The opposite also agrivates me. When some one tells me a tank is over stocked when they have no clue about the other species, and specifications I have for the tank. When some one told me my 10 Gallon that has a 20 gallon Fluval 108 and a UV steralizer on it sounded over stocked I almost had a fit.

I know when I had my first 10 g I overstocked badly. I hadn't realized it until later that even though everything SEEMED fine, it wasn't. You live and learn and don't make the same mistakes right?
