That's the way it should be done. I'm glad you are willing to go look up the info to learn more about it for yourself and for others in the future. I know alot about Bettas and other fish, but I sure am still learning. :)

Some dogs look male and some dogs look female to me. Like, if I see a Great Dane, I'm going to think male immediately because of the size, droopy face, and the way they walk. With Chiz Tsu (spelling?) I think female because of size and the long flowing coat. I think that is what's interesting about bettas to me. The males are the really pretty ones with long flowing fins and bright colors and the females are the low key ones. If I was still a little kid I would believe male bettas are too pretty to be anything but girls. lol

From my experience, Petco can be really good or really bad when it comes to fish info. All you can do is cross your fingers and hope for a really good one. -_-

I can't imagine a grown person being that dense though. But, I guess he's only there for his whatever an hour, he doesn't need to be educated. But he should.

I love how most people call female peacocks "female peacocks" and don't realize they are really peahens! lol!

I ask people what their dog's name is when I meet it in the store and use that to determine male/female... unless it is a gender neutral name... In that case I flat out ask! LOL

I wish every LPS employee was like me. I feel like there are so many bad ones out there that people think I'm trying to hoax them when they come in. I just want what's best for the animals and to keep the people happy in the process. Le Sigh!

There is one employee at my local Petsmart that I trust with his knowledge, but he's the only one.

And it's funny about the dogs. I happen to have a very pretty dog and everyone thinks he's female! And you can't really tell by his name, Adzuki. So I just correct them. I can't resist, I have to share a pic of my puppy:
