Hehe nope!! I've done it many times, people actually didn't believe me that it was the same fish a few times, lol. Goes to show you how little people know about how bettas are supposed to look!
Your new little guy is absolutely adorable! Hes in the same shape my Echo was in when I got him!
As for he horrid conditions of at store, contact the company, send an email through their website, include pictures of the fish in the store, list all of the ailments you witnessed in the fish. Tell them you realize that the majority of their money comes from the sale of the equipment for the fish and that neither you nor anyone you know will be buying anything from them again until they clean up their act! I did this and recieved phones calls from both the store manager and the regional manager, and I have seen improvement in the store I complained about. But you have to keep up on them!
