Hey guys, I just joined the forum a bit ago but figured I should probably post something about myself. I have owned bettas since I was about 10 years old, I currently only have one betta. A red/blue crown-tail male.
I am the lead Pet care Specialist at my local petsmart, and just because I work there doesn't mean I agree with most of what they do. I am there for the animals (bettas among them), customers come #2 to me. That and I think that most of the employees there don't do their homework. I tend to upset customers a lot by telling them what they 'need' for a betta, when they just want to stick them in a cup, not feed them and keep their water at 60 degrees.
Either way, I love my betta and although he is spoiled, he's very healthy. I hope to chat a bit more about bettas on this forum with you guys and maybe clear up some things that the pet stores
either do or don't do from my end.
