Unfortunately before I found this forum(today) I've been through 4 yes FOUR bettas from Pet smart mostly because I listened to their stupid advise. Now I have purchased a 2 gallon tank filter and have it in an area that doesnt drop below 75F. Unfortunately, My guy Pei Mai died tonight. I only had him two days. I'm starting to think that 1) their fish are in horrible shape to begin with 2) Everything they told me was wrong. 3) I'm just cursed.

I'm going back tomorrow fish, water samples and receipt and asking for my money back. I don't know what I'm going to do any advise would be appreciated.

I would be guessing that if the fish died in as little as two days it might have been sick when you got it.
Did you treat the water? Acclimate the betta? Perhaps there is something wrong with your tap water??

I love him even more :P I could have gotten one off a website, but I wanted to try and "rescue" a betta from a horrible life in a little container. Aurora was barely swimming, with his fins folded up when i got him, and just after a day, his upper fin has shot out and hes extremely active. Now the point of this post.. where did you get your fish from? Is anyone else like me, trying to save a Betta's life?

I no you were just trying to help but you buying that sick bettas in a cup. Just gave that no good breeder a reason to breed more and gave the fish store a reason to put another poor bettas on the shelf. Even thoe you feel bad for them but you shouldn't buy them...
