whenever i go to petcetera, it disgusts me to see that almost all of their bettas are half dead on the bottom of their tiny dirty cup.

the conditions that petstores use these days are totally disgusting.

Agreed. Bettas need a fully cycled aquarium, complete with a heater, filter, thermometer, and anything else that you would give normally to other fish. Not a 5 Gallon jar or a cup.

It's okay, as long as you learned from your mistakes. Just don't do it again! Smile
