Is it horrible of me to wanna go to my local ex-Kroger (now Logli) and see if they got these thing's so I can pick up a betta to rescue?

This is a link to a care sheet that I found:
http://www.healthybetta.com/download...Care_Sheet.pdf

I would say to go to your local library and print out about 30-40 copies of it and place the copies next to the betta vases, in a pile at the cash register and maybe have the cashier give one out to someone who is buying a betta, hand them out yourself if you have the time or get someone else, or put them in a pile on the counter next to them. Just basically somewhere very visible.

Also if it was me in this situation I would either write a letter, go to the manager or if one of the bosses were there, I'd see if I can talk to them about some kind of education for water changes feelings, ect. Or even the whole idea in general.

The results are in!

That care sheet is ok, but it misses out one of the most important ingredients of betta keeping - heat! I think it would be better to write your own. You can get many places to print them out pretty cheaply.

Life.

I asked her about them yesterday. She said they were looking awful so the manager just gave them to all the employees. At least their out of the store, hopefully the people that took them will care for them.

Thanks for reading!

I think I might "drop" some of these at my Petsmart.

On Topic: It's good that they snapped out of it and gave them to the employees. I hope the employees know what they are doing.

I never saw those at my Kroger but I never look at the flower section. I'll have to look next time I go there.

Maybe hand out some of those care sheets to the employees, just in case?
