The EEs at my Petco are $20, I asked about a discount and they said no. I also asked about returning it if it did die and the girl at the checkout told to that they don't offer refunds on bettas. I'm going to call tomorrow and speak to a manager and see what I can do. I can't stand the thought of him laying there in that cup, hurt and sad. :( It's breaking my heart.
I don't understand what is wrong with parents these days. I've had fish, hamsters, rabbits, dogs, cat and birds since both of my girls were very, very little and they were taught from start how to treat an animal. I think easier for some parents to just let their kids do what they want.
