True, but big corporations employees probably wouldn't want to deal with the hassle or worry about the betta turning aggressive and killing the other fish or $ as to them, fish is $. To them, it is easier to just throw the fish in a small container and after a few days or more, it will be in its new home.
This is how businesses make $. This is usually why lfs
take better care of fish than big box stores. lfs
are smaller and take more care, whereas the others care for the $, because thats what they do.
