Some of these stories are really horrible! The poor fish..It IS animal abuse, but of course fish are seen as "lesser" animals because they're not cute and fuzzy..And "Oh they're just fish." -.-

It's strange how some stores take very good care of their fish, but a lot of them act like they're not even living creatures. My Petco is wonderful and I buy all of my bettas and aquarium supplies from there - I've only seen one dead betta and their cups are always kept clean. I can't speak on the sales associates because I don't need to talk to them most of the time, but they seem friendly. I'm actually looking to get a job there.

The closest Walmart is over half an hour away, so I haven't been there in quite a while to look at their bettas. Next time I'm in there, I'll probably rescue one..Hopefully their conditions aren't too bad.

we all "rescue them" haha. My petco is amazing. All water is crystal clear, none dead, annddd they fill the cups alll the way up.

i went to walmart a couple days ago. The bettas were okay not that bad. Then i looked at this pretty veiltail male all white with metallic blue on his stomach and tail. His water was soooooooo dirty with poo, food so i went to a guy and told him to go change it and he said to go talk to the guy who was in charge of it( he was surprised when i told him) and i forgot my cart so i went to go get my cart and coukdnt find the guy no more. :(

Mine is not a personal story but I was watching youtube and it was called the "Betta Masacre" and it was a video of some guy at walmart that had a shot of like 10 betta cups next to eachother and each one of them was dead! :(

it was sad
