Angry More aquatic attention!

I actually think bettas need more attention in stores, they're always at the back of the store, getting sick and their deaths going unnoticed... all people want are the dogs and cats, people thik only land pets are fun, but I think bettas need a chance to get out of those miserable small cups! if I would create a pet store, it would probably be all aquatic animals, I'd keep the fish in a big tank. but it's not always the bettas that get sick, sometimes, when I go into the pet store, I see dead goldfish, dead guppies... most of the fish are dead! I feel so bad for the fish that died in those small, overcrowded tanks... AQUATIC ANIMALS NEED A CHANCE!!!

what do you guys think?

I agree 100% as well! And not only just fish, but the turtles too! They get stuck in the fish bowls and 10g tanks as well instead of 40g+ tanks But, I always feel so bad about the fish! Everyone flocks to the puppies, but never the scaly.

I KNOW!! I see dead turtles, too! petsmart should be called petdumb... all aquatic animals FTW!! we HAVE to do something, but what? I used to have a turtle, but it ran away (thanks annoying little sister ) maybe we should do a petition/rescue day/news-spreading website (like my dad spreads the word about persecuted christains in Iran. my family's all christain (TYPO, I HATE IT))

First of all, we are writing e-mails to companies, such as Petco, and Petsmart to tell them to stop selling the Bettas in those cups, in order for people to get interested in fish, they must be "Attractive" to the public, so to decorate the fish section of the store, will bring more people and the workers to have a fun fish day of sorts, to learn all aobut our aquatic friends, finned friends, and to keep all aquatic friends happy and healthy.. and especially the bettas to move them to the middle of the store..or the front..so people can see them, most at the back, have to stay there, I am assuming because the tanks are on the walls, but because they are small, they do tend to go un-noticed, so if the Petstores were to amp up the displays with colorful, and attractive sayings (Marketing approach) will help to educate, and sell better quality fish..

I agree to that, though I have no idea how to convince them to spruce the aquatic section... this might be a hard project... even if it might not be project-y...

I would include in the e-mail that if would help to move the betta section to the middle or the front of the store, to attract more customers, and to make signs such as (Come see our New Bettas) with gorgeous pix in the window..or a banner, If we give them ideas they might just use them..it's worth a try..or make our own, and present them to the manager of the stores, and they can contact Corporate for permission..

You know how they have in some stores like a CVS for instance, a Menu of sorts, well Petco and the like can do the same, by indicating what they have in stock, in the aquatic section, or pictures of fishy's hanging from the ceilings..and puppies, and a combo of the reptile/amphibian section..there are many ways..they just have to be presented in a professional manner..so they will really take into consideration..

I, for one, am tired of looking in tanks in Petco and Petsmart and seeing dead fish all the time. I agree that betas should be given a better marketing chance.

OH! Awesome idea! I'm very creative (well, that's what my teachers and friends tell me) and we could also make posters to raise awareance about bettas, most of my friends don't even know what a betta is... we should raise awareance for bettas instead of just people buying bettas... my new personal motto will be: "FOR THE AQUATIC!" anyone who loves aquatic animals can use it too. bettas for the win! WOO
