Petco, Overstocking much?

This is how many betta fish my petco stocks every friday...there are cups every where, next to the tank stands, under the plants, they've ran out of places to put them....

I think its just... overkill...



A shelf no one ever notices behind a column



But surprisingly, out ofall these masses, I only found 1 dead baby betta.

I'm going to be running by mine this evening to return a heater that I ended up not using...I'll have to see if ours is similarly overstocked.

I know! They do it like that here, too. I asked the manager if they were starting up a betta factory! Only. . .here the fish do so well (or the staff isn't as diligent about picking out the dead). And, after speaking to the manager I found that they are NOT selling that quickly, so *some* of the betta have been there for a month + while others may have just arrived. This will be different per store, but. . . I was upset by it, and refused to buy there.
