I went to the Pet Supermarket near me to get my 1st fish the other day. I was planning on getting a male betta but unfortunately all of the ones there (they only had 4 or 5) looked like they were doing VERY poorly. I wound up getting a healthy dwarf pea puffer instead (yes I have done a LOT of research on how to care for pea puffers prior to buying my little guy... just wanted to put everyone's mind at ease). Has this happened to anyone else? What did you intend to get and what did you wind up getting?
