Thats so sad when i went to petco i saw a bug in one of the bettas tank (i think it was a fly) so i told the employee to remove it and he said its just a stupid fish it wouldn't hurt him. I was so pissed.

A couple of years ago, I was at Meijers looking at the bettas and the containers they were in were filthy. I wrote to their headquarters and got a veryt nice reply. They were so sorry that I was upset about the condition of the fish and they said they would look into it. Nothing really changed, though. BUT, the other day I went back to look at the bettas and they were in nicer containers, bigger than you'd see them in at Petsmart and other places. Also, the water looked clean and they had some really nice bettas. I was surprised! Maybe my e-mail helped after all.

Grrrrrrr!!!! That makes me so mad.

On a better note, the Petco in Quincy MA has a few new employees in the fish department that actually care about the fish. The conditions have improved greatly and although the bettas are still in fairly large cups - each one that i saw yesterday had clean water and looked healthy. The employees are working on management to improve the department so that's refreshing.

I took home two gorgeous males yesterday. One halfmoon and one crowntail.

Yeah, my petco cleaned up their act a lot. I get my bettas from them because they are the best place around..which is kinda sad because it's still far from perfect.

Congrats on the new additions Romad!

Y'all probably know they don't make much if any money off of bettas and most other animals there (besides birds.) The money comes from the supplies and for the most part animals are "loss leaders".
