True, but their water gets changed more often, and they usually get fed regularly, instead of being pushed behind others of its brethren and dying of ammonia poisoning or starvation.

And hopefully they go online and educate themselves.

My Petco changes water every 2 days and fed daily. The average person feeds weekly or every other day. Never water changed. In at maximum. 5 gallon.

Hey I wouldn't bash all pet stores...My local Petsmart and Petco take very good care of their bettas considering everything else they have to do...The cups are always full with clear (or sometimes blue lol) water and 90% of them look healthy. I'm most likely going to get my next betta from my local Petsmart or Petco...

Yeah me too....I was just leaving a margin for error....

Also my LFS takes way worse care of their bettas than my Petsmart or Petco do...

Pet Supplies Plus is a nice place to shop for a betta, as they generally only keep a few at a time, change water and feed them regularly. They don't stock 7000 at once like I've seen Petsmart do (although I admit, I have had good fish from PM).

Went in today for a new 20-long and stopped to look at the bettas - there are only 3 in the store this time and two are lively but the big blue VT is totally fungused up to the point that you'd think he had fur. I don't have time or space to treat him, so I let the folks know. They're generally pretty good about making sure fish don't suffer.
