i think all stores handling bettas different way, and it all depends on employ and management. I know 6 stores in my town that i go and only 2 stores trying to take care of the bettas. One store changing the water once a wk and another one 2 times a week. The other stores i am leaving all in tears because it a lot of sick and dead bettas. And one time i ask how often they change the water and the answer was-''when it dirty'' .

yes I agree. When I go to the petsmart that is near my house, their cup is very dirty that I can't even see the betta well. -_______- More than half of the betta in the cups are dead or sick..... T_T

The health of a store's fish depends on the employees. I've seen it in Smarts and Cos both where the fish look great and where the fish look awful. It just depends on the location and how much those employees care. Sounds like the place you got yours from didn't really care so much and the fish paid the price. :(

Have you considered buying online through a place like AquaBid? Many fish there come from great breeders and are quite healthy. Plus it's easy to pick out exactly what you'd like.

It is -- but for the quality of betta and service, it's worth it to some to spend the extra money.
