AGGGHHH it would be so much easier if they just kept them in tanks like every other fish, I mean when was the last time you saw them selling oscars or guppies in cups?
Think of it this way, guppies can be kept together and oscars can be kept together, but not bettas. imagine the store having 20+ tanks, each with a single betta? imagine the costs that that would cause for the store? from a business perspective it is not very practical, especially for a $3 fish.
I'm not saying I agree to this, but thats how the company makes their money, thus being a large corporation.
