Ah okay. I didn't know. I just came back and saw you were the first post after a while with no one responding.
Personally, I'd love to buy lots of stuff offline. But I live with my little brother and sister and mom. And my money's needed at home first. And personally, if it comes to burning 30-40 in gas to get to petco, or just picking somehtign up at walmart that's 15 minutes away while we grocery shop, I'm gonna go for walmart. *shrugs* It's bad to support any of them. Petco and Petsmart do badly by their bettas too, but I shop them. Cause even though I love fancy fish I can't justify spending $75 on just one over aquabid. I roll into petco and find some amazing fish though.
Just... I dunno. I know everyone here cares about their fish. And I don't like when people judge by where you shop like it makes you a bad person or something. And it's especially hurtful when I'm not even buying fish there and you're telling me that I'm helping hurt fish because I bought a tank for one. Good Sir's really happy in his five gallons, and I'm happy I got it for him.
