Angry So mad at petco today!!

Mad for a few reasons.
First: they had a green "king"betta in a little cup,he was so big both ends of him were touching the cup!!
Those thing are to small for standard sized fish,If they want to keep bigger bettas out they need bigger cups

Second: some girl was trying with all her might to get her friend to get a betta cause it matched her room and could live in a wine glass.
Happy to say the friend did not get the betta.

last: when I ask for help with fish stuff,why in the name of gods green earth send some guy that knows nothing,who just has to turn back around 10 seconds after he gets there to find someone else cause he knows nothing about fish.

Bettas
spirit, skittles, Monet

Goldfish
Ponyo,Sōsuke, Fujimoto,Lisa

Ghost shrimp
Blinky,Pinky,Inky

Wow...thats just not right. Its kind of how i think i saw a fish with sbd, or something similar, because it was slightly bloated. So i asked the girl in charge of the bettas, "does he look like he has swim bladder?" She was like "no" and walked away, the betta then started to lay on its side and then franticly right itself....i don't know about you but i think something was wrong with him.

Wow. How awful.

None of these people know anything. They think a Betta needs to live in a bowl, and that 2 Common Goldfish can live in a 3 gallon, and that 1 African Dwarf Frog needs at least 5 gallons. (What?)

So yeah. They have everything wrong.

*2 Bettas (for now RIP Ryu) *2 Goldfish *9 Guppies *1 Gourami *2 Chinchillas *2 Budgies *2 Dwarf Frogs *1 Dog *1 Cat *2 Hermit Crabs *2 3gs *1 10g *1 Pond *2 2gs

Ugh, some girl was in the petsmart I was in and she was trying to tell the worker she didn't need a cycled tank ro a heater. They also wanted to put Tiger barbs with it. The girl then told me bettas were boring when i was looking at the bettas. She explaiend the one she had before. I told her it was because she wasn't caring for it properly.

Our petstore actually told me when I was buying the Marina goldfish tank that I could put two commons in it but they would need an upgrade and eventually a pond. Then he said I could house a male betta in it and it would be better. tHEN the guy realised it was me and laughed. He knew I knew what I was doing. But he did himself in when he told me Bettas are not tropical Fish and need colder water than tropicals. *facepalm* Thankfully my store puts bettas in 0.5g tanks on a wall, not cups. They are hit and miss bit usually do good things.

One of the reasons I was so drawn to Jalen was because he matched my room. >.>
In all fairness, that's not the only reason I chose him. And I have ADD, so things need to match in my house or I freak.

Well, my ADD makes me OCD, if that makes sense.
