Unfortunately, when you work for a chain store, the vast majority of store policies are dictated from above. Individual managers have control over how much time they alot to care and maintenence of livestock (which is why some locations have fish that generally look healthier and better cared for than others), but procedures involving the care and treatment of ill/injured fish is most likely a company-wide policy set in place and enforced by the people at corporate.

I can't tell you how bad I wanted to rescue that little female. I wanted to rescue all of them but I had liked that little female since the first time I saw her. She flared at my finger and I was sure someone would snatch her up. To see her still there almost two weeks later is so sad.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

It's a shame that some of the Petco stores refuse to take proper care of their animals. Our local Petco is really good about tending to their animals, but yesterday the bettas were a bit filthy. I bought one and let them know that the bettas were due for a cleaning. After I said something (kindly) they started cleaning out the betta cups.
