Ugh that is just aweful! If you buy from there a lot, you could tell them they'll lose your business if they keep on doing that. Or you could talk to the manager?

I would talk to the manager. If they won't listen I would talk to corporate (if it's a chain) or the owner if it's not.

so instead of saying anything right there, you went home to tell everyone and ask what you should do? By the time you go back, one or more of the bettas will probably be dead. Great you feel bad but should have spoken up. smh.

I never bother lecturing store owners/staff about the conditions they keep their bettas in. It's a lesson in futility.

I just keep a mental list of stores in my head that I would never buy from, never go to, and never recommend to anyone again.

Only way to get a store to change is to effect their bottom line. Anything else I've found, and you are just wasting your breath.
