Exclamation Outraged!

i went to petcity today to check out the bettas which i saw were in very small glass tanks about 5cm wide long and 7cm high. They said they change water every week once only and the fish look lathargic and unhappy as there is no heat for them! I hate the way petshops treat some of the animals its terrible!

It is sad.. unfortunately you can't do anything about it.. bettas are sold pretty quickly, and they can't keep them all in the same tank, so they have to separate them for their own safety. Unfortunately, it is the most idea way to hold them until they find a new home.
But it would be nice if they cleaned the water a little more often =)

Lol none of us can help feeling sorry for them, why some of us end up with so many lol. My boyfriend made me promise not to buy a betta because I feel sorry for it, but because I fall in love and it makes me jump up and down. Otherwise I'd probably have bought at least 20 bettas in the last month if I went on feeling bad for them.

Go, go bettamon! Gotta catch them all!

wolfboy, do you say Petcity as in.. NL?

I have to agree though. It turns one's stomach to see the "care" of pet shops. That's what we're all here for!
