I know just the way you feel. Today I went to Wal-Mart and they had most of the bettas in a inch or two of water. That makes soooo mad because they were soo pretty and there was a orange one.Only if I had the room!!!!
i was half tempted to complain but i am like that wont solve anything and i did see a pretty little orange one and that exact petstore happily swimming with some other fish i wanted him but am not set up for a beta yet :( i really hate how they treat them also
