That is impressive betta husbandry, for any store... :)

The fish were happy, healthy and active, and made an awesome display. I'll bet that store sells more fish because of the care it gives their fish stock.

I wish more stores thought this way.

Patronize the heck out of stores like this one! :D

That's an awesome idea. Not quite sure about leaving the sides of the compartments trasnparent, but it's a vast improvement from the Walmart nearby. =]

And I've completely stopped my business at chain stores. I shop for supplies online, and I have a good LFS to get healthy fish from. I feel better because of it. Although I do stop by the PetCo and Petsmart from time to time and casually leave betta care brochures in their betta section. The Petsmart takes them away everytime, but the PetCo actually starts handing them out and props them up so more people buy them. I was rather shocked at that.

The walmart here (Henrietta) is actually pretty nice. The water is always nice and clean, and the female bettas are in a sorority, and the males' cups are always clean and maintained well.

The sides of the compartments should be clear because, the male bettas will be less aggressive. Less aggressive means you can have a nice betta condo or split tank easily.
