My local petco generally seems to take poor care of its fish, but strangely the bettas are the exception... they're in cups but their water is always clean, the fish seem healthy, and they're displayed on special racks with dividers so they don't see each other.
My local petsmart generally seems to take superb care of its fish, but the bettas are the exception... they're dying and molding in cups with foul grey water full of poop, stacked next to each other on shelves so they see each other and stress themselves to death.
I can't imagine why anyone thinks they're going to make money presenting fish that way for sale.
