You'd think they'd be more careful to not give random people 50% discounts, but three bucks and a fish probably doesn't mean much to them, anyways.
I have always had trouble with fin types.

I actually do have troubles with tail types if they are not VT or CT. Most pet stores only sell those two kinds and I think it's fairly easy to tell them apart.

I start getting confused when you get in to all the other tail types, though, but I've never seen anything but CTs and VTs in my local stores.

I guess it really depends on where you live, though.

I am hoping to get a fighter type. I consider it a rescue too.

I got a Wal-Mart betta. It was beautiful, but I could tell it was sick. I had it for about 9 months and during that time, it had chronic swim-bladder and was always listless. Poor guy. One the other hand, though, Diego is my super Wal-Mart betta who has been with me for a year and a half!!!

Well that sound horrible but at least they get fed. Petco does not feed them and many are dead.

I want to share something that happened to me today and don't want to start a new thread. Despite feeling ill from watching the hobbit I took the bus down to Petco. Stupid me had lost the conditioner for the water. Anyways Half the bettas there were sick and/or over fed. First female employee blew me off and very annoyingly got the manager. Expecting to be blew by the manager of I was surprised when he let me show him the bettas. And after seeing the over feeding, and a double tail with only a single tail left, and several with disintrigrating tails he started to get ticked off. The sick ones in particular had a crust where water had dried. He told me he's going to call teh breeder ask what is up and his specialist is out today. Then to my surprise he pulled an employee back to start cleaning ALL the cups (sick or not) AGAIN and to do it RIGHT.

Also I learned if you wear shiney jingly bracelets you can get the majority of the male bettas flaring at you. The elephant ear bettas are so CUTE when they flare up.
