I am so proud of my Petsmarts close by! The bettas that they had before were the tiny cups (that had like the only handfuls of water for the bettas where they could barely swim in a circle). But last time I went they doubled the size of the cups they are housed in now. Now, they can swim in circles easier and have more water and space to swim in. Yea, the cups are still on the smaller side and they don't have the space to house them in small tanks, but they are a lot better than they were in the past. Plus, they look more healthy than previous shipments looked after a while of care from the staff. (I also have to add they have made more space for the smaller animals too!) So, they obviously are trying
to care for the animals better than they were in the past at least.
I see more variety of colors and tail variations of bettas from them lately too! (Almost got a pretty green/turquoise guy :P but my tank wasn't set up yet :( )
Anyhow, I hope these changes mean that there is hope for some pet stores! Just thought to share with you all :)
