I went to Petco today after work to see what they had different than Petsmart (and because the Pet-o-Rama closed down not to far away). I was pleasantly surprised by what I found in the way of fish. All the bettas were in larger bowl-like cups - the water was clean - the bettas were clearly marked and looked healthy. They had a pretty good selection as well! Lots of them.
I took a picture of this beauty that I really had to force myself to leave there (don't have room for anymore right now!) But I thought I'd share what I saw, plus that beautifully colored betta I saw (is it a delta?! I forgot!)
They had a pretty good selection of accessories too - but not the heater and filter I was looking for for my 2.5 gal tanks so I'll have to go back to Petsmart!. I love that they had silk plants and plants labeled "betta plants" - very soft and safe for their fins :)
Ugh! Just looking at that picture makes me want to go right back to Petco and get that fish!
