Petsmart, Walmart, and PetCo should be required to give bettas at least a half gallon to a gallon of clean water to live in. They currently provide bettas with a only a small cup of water to live in until they are bought. A lot of times, the minuscule cup is only filled up halfway. Sometimes there is not even enough water for the bettas to move around. The smaller the amount of water is, the quicker it gets filthy from rotting food. This means that many bettas get sick and die before they are ever taken home by pet owners. Sometimes there is even mold growing in the cups from the lack of clean water. These conditions are horrible and no living creatures should be forced to live in them. If this petition gets enough signatures, I will make sure it gets delivered to these corporations. The only way to improve the lives of these fish are for all of us to stand up and put pressure on the companies that sell them.
