I have fallen in love w/ Betta's and I will get another one when I get my financial aid refund check. I'm going to buy Zombie a 5g tank w/ a filter, then buy a new heater for that one, and then give the new betta Zombie's old home, since it's all set up. I think I'm going to buy Zombie this castle I saw at wal-mart instead of his log. Although I do like being able to see Zombie to make sure he's okay, so I may just buy the new fish it's own hollowed out log, and let Zombie keep his.
So begins the Betta Bug.
I know exactly what you mean. It's horrible to see those poor fish. But, as someone (idk who
) said, "No one can do everything, but everyone can do something."
Really, I don't think that any one chain of petstores is responsible for neglect. I've seen really great Petsmarts, bad Petcos, and pretty decent Wal-Marts. When it comes right down to it, it's the individual store and/or employees.
