If it is a reoccurring problem, I can understand your frustration. However, you well overreacted to the new shipment. I work(worked, today was my last day) at Walmart, and I'm the only one who took care of the fish. I changed their water every day, and gave them much needed medications, especially the new ones. We received ill Bettas almost every shipment, and their illnesses do not heal overnight, as I am sure you know very well. There are 3 Bettas that I've been tending to for almost 3 weeks now. Both are healthy and recovering from finrot, and one even had half his tail missing.
Now tell me why I would deserve the treatment you gave to the employee when it isn't MY fault the fish were delivered with various illnesses.
Also, I've tested the water for ammonia multiple times, especially when I went back to work after being gone for up to 4 days. Despite their cups being dirty, there wasn't any reading for ammonia.
Frustration is understandable, but angry reactions will get you no where. He (or she) who angers you, controls you.
Requesting, politely I might add, will get you further than trying to teach people how to do their jobs.
Today I visited an Aquarium Center that I had written a letter to management about the condition of their Bettas. He wrote me back and told me to come back and give them another chance. I waited a few weeks just to see if they had really changed, and sure enough, the Betta section was spotless with crystal clear water.
I think you should try a different approach to changing the way things are done.
