there is a lps here that has probably over a hundred bettas. They are placed on top of and inbetween all the displays in the store. I don't see how they could know how old they are. Could they be selling that many?
The fish I've purchased from them, including Bettas and a goldfish have never lasted very long, but their crickets are great singers :D
Their staff seems knowledgeable and caring so i have no idea what's going on there. Its been about two weeks since I've been in there. I must go see if they have any orange bettas. I'd be willing to try again.
Our Petsmart customer service used to be terrible, I swore I'd never go back there, and didn't for over a year, but the lure of half price bettas [i read about here last weekend] caused me to decide to 'put on my big girl panties' and go back. They have a lot of new people, and service was much better this time.
