I went to the local aquarium today.. Now I'm depressed.. It is the sickest, grossest place I've ever seen! The tanks have crack and are sooo dirty! The piranhas were gasping for air, the cat fish had popeye, some even had popped eyes. The sea turtles had one which was probably dead and fungusy and the red ear sliders had no basking area and all had shell rot :( I'm filing a Public interest litigation against them! ><

well he's stressy and sinky but he had enough energy to swim around acting upset and he took a nip at some of the junk at his water
I'm guessing the lady in charge of the fish section is on vacation or something, there were several in not so great shape. I saw this gorgeous ct as well but my qt's are full right now with this guy

Woohoo, you got him, way to go Tisia! Another betta rescued!

Fighter, aww, that's so awful about the aquarium. :( Those poor fish, when you said they actually had popped eyes I cringed.

I just got back from my pet store and the fish lady was telling customers how she keeps her bettas in a 2 gallon with danios and African Dwarf frogs with no filter or heater and he lived for 5 years. *cringes*

Places like that should be closed down. I'm sorry you had to see such a horrible sight. :(
