Ok but... When he's better... Did you leave your number? If not no need to worry he's in great hands thankfully. Thanks for update

Brian is going to take him home and try to nurse him back to health. The manager said that there was no reason that the betta was put back on the shelf in that condition and that he was going to have a talk with the girl who accepted the return. I also told him about the Crowntail I saw yesterday, it's fins were all curled and he just looked terrible. He said that he would make sure Brian knew about him and that they would set him up in a tank in the back and see if they can help him as well. He also offered me a free betta but I refused. I told him that I just wanted to make sure that these 2 guys were taken care of.
you got this kind of response from a petco? wow my mind has been blown, good for the little guys!

I wish our stores were more considerate. I know the "we'll take care of them" here literally means flushed.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

I did leave my # for Brian and told him that if he doesn't want or can't keep him that I will adopt him.

lol! I was shocked too, I was ready to get loud but I didn't have to. The manager (Joe I believe was his name) was really sweet.

I told him that if Brian doesn't keep him I want him. I have a feeling that if he makes it Brian will keep him. I've spoke to him a few times and he loves bettas.

I was waiting for them to give me answers I didn't want. While I was on the phone with them I told my daughter to get dressed. I was ready to make that hour drive. lol

roaring to go hey? Lol! I stopped asking stores here for discounts. Just acted like a naive bimbo and got the fish I wanted xD especially if they were labelled wrong ;)
