Went to LFS and they have all these fish in small plastic containers. These fish cannot survive in there can they? Looks pretty cruel to me.

Betta (Siamese Fighting Fish) are frequently kept in bowls or cups in stores, but they must never be kept like this once acquired. They can "exist" but that hardly amounts to "living."

They were probably bettas. While I would agree that it is cruel, it is also pretty common practice in the aquarium trade.
