Just thought I'd share...

I was at Meijers today, doing some grocery shopping and I decided to check out their bettas. I had a problem a few years ago with them not taking care of their bettas and I sent them an e-mail about it. They answered me saying that they were sorry and that they would look into it. They seemed concerned but whenever I went back after that, it seemed like nothing had changed. Now, these last few months, I have noticed some changes. The bettas are in bigger containers, well, bigger than the ones at Petsmart. And the biggest surprise was that today I saw that they had a caresheet next to the bettas! I thought great, it'll probably say to keep them in a .5 gallon vase and feed them once to twice a week. I got home and read it.
!. It stated to keep it in a regular sized aquarium and if you keep it in anything small, that the water needed to be kept clean and changed often.
2 It said to watch for temperature changes if housing in a small bowl.
3 Feed a good variety of food.
4 It stressed the importance of clean water.
5 It said bettas should not be housed with other bettas, male or female.
It said before breeding to check out books from your local library.
6 It gave a list of equipment needed to care for a betta properly.
This is just an outline of the care sheet. I thught it gave some pretty good info.

Our Meijer has bettas! I've only been back there once in the last few years, but they had nice sized containers (still small though), and they looked pretty healthy. They were misnamed, though :3 A couple crowntails named veiltails, and the other way around.

YAY, dramaqueen to the rescue. =p No that's awesome though. The petsmart I bought Hades at kept their bettas in a plastic cup of tinted blue water. And they sometimes stacked the cups. They were stacking them ontop of the other cups breathing holes! I think I am going to email them.

The blue water has methylene blue in it. They use it as a disease preventative.
