it's not bad at all. often, the employees aren't properly informed at all. if you wish to correct them, try not to sound snobby, or like you're better than them. just say something along the lines of, "sure, they can live in those small tanks, but they do alot better, and stay healthy longer in larger tanks like this one". :d it's good to spread the knowledge you learn here! :3

Perhaps write a letter to the store manager. This may be more effective in the long run. Granted, I am new to the betta scence, but I have had hermit crabs for a while - which are oftentimes kept in less than ideal conditions at pet stores. Many a times a polite, informative letter will result in changes with their crabitat set-ups. It's worth a shot, especially if you don't think they would listen to you otherwise.

I had an employee laugh at me when I told her that I had my betta in a 10 gallon. I just said, "well, he's very happy."
