Thanks everyone for all of the input and suggestions. Unfortunately, my fish died. It seems that the consensus is that Petco is not the best place to get/learn about bettas. What type of store do I go to to get my next betta? Thanks again.

It doesnt matter what store, it matters how the individual store keeps their bettas. Look for healthy ones in clean water :) I'm really sorry about your fish.

Sorry your fish didn't make it. Like others have said most of the chain pet shops don't know much when it comes to fish and how to care for them. Best thing to do is reserch. If you haven't already try reading this, it will help you bunches ....

The other thing you can do is call your local Petco, ask what day they get the new fish. I lost my first one two days after I got him (so I suspect he was sick when I got him), but when I went to get my second, my Ninja, I got to pick from all the bettas still in their shipping triangles. I went the day the fish came in. :)
