@anonymous: Bettas actually need WARM water. Goldfish need COLD water. You can keep a Betta in unheated water but u are risking disease and a shorter lifespan. A Betta is a tropical fish, and Goldfish aren't. Goldfish also need MUCH larger tanks than most people keep them in. They can get quite large and they create a huge amount of waste. A healthy Betta (one kept in ideal circumstances) can live 4+ years. The average lifespan the way they are kept, is less than 2. Many live less than a year. There are reasons for that... if u want a healthy Betta, keep it in warm, filtered water, test the water parameters regularly, and keep it in at LEAST a 3 gallon alone (preferably 5 gallon) or a larger tank if u want tank mates. Tank mates should be other warm water, non aggressive fish, preferably smaller fish with shorter fins. Some Bettas cannot accept any tank mates, others are more relaxed about it. At any rate they should share the same habitat requirements. Of course u can do what u want, but why keep fish just to make them suffer and die young?

Don't be so quick to judge a pet store. I work at a Petco and we go the extra mile to take care of our fish properly and ensure they are treated humanely. i.e during Persian new year we will NOT sell Goldfish without a full setup (gravel, 1gal+ aquarium, food, treater, etc). Same with bettas, i myself, educate people and insist they buy a 2.5gal or higher tank for it.
