Oh no, no, no! I know they are our pets, but petstores view it more like a defective product exchange. Like if you bought a box of cookies and after opening them, you discover bugs. They give you a new box rather the bugs came from them or you to keep you as a customer and to look like a responsible business that people can trust to do business with. Bad reviews spread faster than good after all. How many stories have you heard that start off as a warning to others? It's easy to find every possible bad thing that could happen with something ever. Like pages of people complaining about a medicine's side effect when it only effects 1% or less of people! Bad experences are a powerful thing.

Mmkay well I found where it shows my purchase online. Sorry I'm not replying to every post, I just feel overwhlemed.

Would anyone be against me posting a current picture of him on here?
I just got home from school, my mom was the one who texted me and said he passed so I was partially unaware of the situation. He just looks... weird. Maybe this picture could help me figure out what happened to him?

I don't think anyone would be against you posting a picture here. We're here to help. If it will make you feel better to know what was wrong, then we'll help you figure it out.

I am so sorry for loss. I know how it feels to lose a beloved Betta.

I just put him in the pond... I didn't feel like fooling with anything. IDK.

So sorry to hear. Everything that needs to be said, was said by others. Just feel good knowing you gave him a comfortable, warm, clean final home. Like a brief retirement from the pet store.
Never give up on the injustices in our world. Bettas are remarkable little things, by returning him (even though he is in a pond now) you could have gotten another betta.. Not as a replacement but as another chance to help store bettas.
He likely had an internal problem, nothing an untrained customer could even notice. It is not your fault. You are a caring person, bless.
