I am always wondering where on earth they get them but boy they are sad looking animals. I never buy fish from petsmart and seldom from petco because in MN it's pretty much the same story there. All of the betta they carry are stunted aside from their 'giant's' which are just normal sized betta. HA what a joke and what a ripoff, the giants are not even real giant's, just PK and you have to pay close to $20 for them...no. Both stores are criminal.
This is why I want to start a betta fish rescue. I honestly don't care if other people say that the stores will think the bettas are on demand because the store manager will get a good talking to from me. I will still try to save some of those poor little souls.

The petsmart where I got my fish is very clean, keeps great care of all their pets, and are very nice and helpful. Most employees don't really know much about Bettas, but most of them will admit it and that they are simply going off the information given to them in the fact sheets. And many of them are eager to learn more information.

I am so upset. I'm literally crying over that betta I mentioned earlier, especially since now my mom says I could've rescued him. Well, I'll go back there soon and if he's there, he's mine. And I've already named him Fey.
