I went to meijer today to get some flakes for Nereus and saw they had some new bettas in... and I was pleasantly surprised to see one even had a bubblenest! But then I saw that about four bettas were dead, half of them were mislabeled, and most of them were sick in some way or another. It kind of bummed me out. And I couldn't even take home the one with the bubblenest because I've run out of space in my room ^-^;. But soon I'll be moving to a bigger room, allowing more bettas. I can't wait xD
I just wish there was more people near me who liked bettas as much. All of my friends just say "Yeah, whatever," when I talk about my boys. It makes me sad D:

They made some changes at my Meijers. The bettas were in decent sized cups... bigger than the ones at Petsmart and the water looked cleaner. The bettas I saw were pretty decent looking. I've always been reluctant to buy one from Meijers though.

They actually had nice sized cups! I was surprised! Except for one poor red veil, though. He wasn't looking good at all. He either had fin rot or he'd ripped his fins to pieces, so much that he actually looked like a crowntail. The poor boy also had the least amount of water in his cup. I wanted to take him home, but my mom has said no more bettas for awhile. It tore me up to leave him there.

Thats sad. I'd love to have a few more but my room is pretty full right now. No one really knows how many I have unless they come upstairs. I have no problem taking care of them but sometimes the water changes can get a bit overwhelming for 7 fish. lol And then there is the problem of getting someone to take care of them if I go out of town, which, lucky for me, isn't often.

Hi, my name is Vikki and I'm addicted....wait no, obsessed with betta fish.
LOL

I've never seen bettas that bad except for the Petsmart out in Kennesaw. All other places, even Walmarts never have dead bettas. I've seen 2 females dead that's it. They usually only have fin rot.
