I am thinking about going in "armed" with a camera soon if this doesn't stop. Then I can send the proof to the petsmart people and my petsmart will have to shape up.

I respect the actions people are taking to prevent such mistreatment. The petsmart / petco near me aren't quit this bad.

My Petsmart is pretty good. I very rarely see dead fish.

To live in a perfect world, unfortunately we don't.

That's just my point, There is no rule saying you have to buy a tank from them or you can't purchase a betta.
Give me the phone number# the store location, all the details, and I'll personally call.

If such a rule existed it would only be for the money aspect of it,
It's a store based on profit or it doesn't exist!
Nice cover to say "it's for the well being of the betta, If only it was true.

If it's truly for the well being of the betta then go all the way and force the sale of a proper sized tank.

If someone is naive enough to think they have to buy a tank from them
then the store made a profit,

Pictures, they prove nothing, can get a sea full of those, who hasn't got a camera or know where they can get aquarium pictures.

So what next,
do We have to prove that we actually have food to feed them?
or that were gonna change their water regularly?
Have medicine to care for them should they get sick?
A heater to keep them warm.

That's just plain silly.

Maybe we shouldn't be allowed to have a child either until we prove we have a home and food for them.

Rules like this is part of why so many dogs are euthanized every day.
Because an adoptee failed one time in their life to do a follow up at the vets with a pet they previously owned and many other lame reasons.
So they are classed as unfit to own a dog and the dog is taken back.

Petsmart stores seem to be in troubles everytime you turn around,
It's no wonder really.

You are VERY lucky. Every time I go to my petsmart I take time to inspect EVERY fish... and set all of the dead ones on a different shelf and then the employees come and move them

There is another petsmart about 30-40 minutes from me that seems MUCH better. Last time I was there they only had one Betta and he was in a 5gallon by himself.
