^ That's a pretty girl. But sadly, most people just want the bright colors.

Personally, I can understand wanting the pretty colors, but that doesn't mean the wild colors should be left to die =[

Well, this isn't in a WalMart store anywhere (I don't think Canadian WalMart stores sell any livestocks, thank God!), but this is in a LFS near me. They had 20-30 betta fishes in cups where they are left in basically a shelf along with aquarium supplies. I was angered because they placed it there as if the betta fishes were not as special as the other fishes. They were in cups and most of them were sick, depressed, or dead. Though the water quality was okay, I was still so pissed about it. I saw this small halfmoon, he was blue-bodied; red fins with green outlines; the only problem with him is that he has a small wound on his right side. He reacted very well when I stopped infront of the shelves and I felt an instant want to take care of him and treat his wound. I took him home and now he's in a ten gallon tank enjoying the spacious, clean water. I've been adding aquarium salt and additives to treat his wound (his wound before I got him was bigger, and now it kind of decreased in size, and his blue scales are starting to clot over it) hopefully he'll be in great condition at the end of the week. I'm planning to get him his own tank mates this weekend.

I live in Canada, and the Canadian Walmarts are no longer allowed to sell pet fish. :D

But, there (obviously) are other places to get them. One place that actually does pretty well is a pet store called Safari. They keep the Bettas in glass mason jars.
Another place, however, is called Nature Pet. They're really great for equipment and such, but the fish are often in bad shape. They're kept in these little plastic cups, probably half the size of the mason jars at Safari.

Before I knew anything about Bettas, I went with my aunt because she wanted to get one. Most of them were so still, we thought they were dead! We asked the guy there if they were okay, and he said that Bettas weren't supposed to move around a lot! I believed him then because I thought he was supposed to know what he was talking about.
