I just for back from a fish store: New Wave Tropical Fish in Orange CA. Everything looked good, it was a little expensive. Then I saw the bettas. You would not believe the condition they were in. One of them was thrown into a tank full of fin nippers. All of his fins were gone and he was hanging on for his life. There were around 5 in cups. There cups had clearly never been cleaned. I could tell their dead bodies have been sitting there for a few days. There was a ton of uneaten food at the bottom of their prison cells. I also saw painted fish, I think they were called Painted Glass Fish. I just can't understand how someone could let a living thing die in a cup when it would have taken maybe 10 minutes to change their water and possibly save their life! How could this be legal?
