I myself, have experienced a betta stressed out and suffering from fin tears because he flared at his neighbor too much.

And good for you to be spawning so many bettas. Why not go help the ones in stores find homes instead of leaving them in stores to slowly die at the hands of ignorant employees.
I don't sell to stores and why would I buiy the ones that they leave to slowly die of finrot and starvation so they can buy more. I sell mine on Aquabid to make money not to buy diseased ones and lose money. Stop trying to make me the bad guy here. You having had one bad experience with a torn fin doen't mean everyone else will. If he was sick from the stress of flaring then maybe you didn't feed it properly or have it in good water.

While my LFS keeps them in smaller bowls until sold, they don't house a ton of bettas. Twelve max. The water is always clean and while their education is a little whacky on betta care, they do an excellent job on taking care of the bettas in their shop and they're always willing to help with building a better tank. They can tell when a person is a serious fish keeper, and they show their fish knowledge by keeping their own 50 gallon NPT in the back with a wonderfully balanced community tank. This is the only reason I ever considered selling any of my bettas to a LFS. I feel a bit better when I see clean bowls compared to dirty cups. I've never seen poo-ridden bowls in this shop.

It's the ones that have algae and no poo that scare me. If the algae has had time to build up in their cup and there is no poo, when was the last time they fed the poor things?
