Wink "Why is that fish sleeping"

I was browsing betta fish at Pet Depot when a little girl walked in and asked "why is that fish sleeping?" I almost burst out laghing! I know it's not funny that it is dead but why is it "sleeping?" Is it that hard to take care of a fish properly until it finds a home? Anyways, the little girl ended up getting your basic red veil-tail (very pretty) but the guy told her betta fish need no filter, heater, and only need to be fed every other day with one pellet!!! He also topped it all off by convincing her to buy a 0.5 gallon bowl for it with just gravel because he said bettas don't like decorations!! I was thinking no wonder why there are so many fish "sleeping" in the pet stores, because of people like that who think they know everything.

Yup. Everytime I see someone at the petstore picking up a betta bowl I cringe.
