I went into PetSmart today in search of some supplements for my plants and thought I would take a peek at the bettas. To my surprise they were all gone!
No sadly someone didn't snatch them all up, but they were doing a daily water change.
It is encouraging to see that at least in my local PetSmart they are changing the water every day, feeding, and keep them in containers about twice the size you will see anywhere else. I know it is still not the ideal conditions, but it is good to see that they are moving in the right direction :)
Thought I would share since you hear so many depressing stories of unkept bettas.
