So recently I moved to a new area. Today I went to checkout my local fish retailers. Note: THIS IS NOT A RANT, OR A TEAR DOWN, THIS IS A STORY. Petsmart was disappointing. They were poorly stocked. So I left and then went to petco. I was in for a BIG surprise. They had so many tanks, plus a HUGE live plant/snail tank. (I know where I am getting my plants from now on!) Heres the best part! They had their female bettas in a sorority setting in a community tank! All of the females were happy and healthy and showed no aggression (I watched them for a while) I went up to a store employee and told them how great I thought it was that the majority of their females weren't in little cups. They also kept a male plakat fighter in with some mollies, I noticed little aggression besides a little chasing now and then. They also have live plants in almost every tank! Java fern, moss, anubias and others! So I have to say, petco really surprised me this time! And I'll be proud to support a place that doesn't keep ALL of their bettas in tiny cups.
