poor turtles They should have some sort of spot to rest.
I was at a different petco yesterday with one of my buddies and the red parrots cichlids and Oscars had holes in their head and gill covers, and some where starting to form on their sides D: it was sooo sad, the oscar kept looking at us like he was saying "save me from this saaaad place pleeaaase!" *cry* Poor thing, even my friend wanted to take him home :(

Nooo, don't tell us things like that Copper! Now I want to drive to your Petco and save the Oscar!

Fighter, rant away, the rest of us are ranting right along with you. Those poor turtles, I just wanna scoop them all up and put them somewhere safe. :(

Ugh! Poor oscars :( There were oscars here too, poor things were the quietest, most lethargic oscars I've ever seen.. I literally wanted to break open the tank and take them home. They were 8 inches long too :(

She had surgery O.o I didn't know that!
She would whoop their butts good X(

I should make a fb page about it and u guys should comment about how horrible it was, once they know that foreign tourists are complaining, they might do something.. They don't care about anything else.. Losers..

That's what she said when she posted a while ago about her betta Zen in the emergencies section (think it was just fin rot). She said it was in the "headlight" section, so uhm, girls, I think we know which area she's talking about.

Yeah, I'll complain my head off. Oh wait, I don't have a facebook account. Enh. I'll use someone else's to complain.

D: I read up andd found out that it had hole in the head disease, and that it's from bad water conditions :( and since so many had it, that meant that petco had horrible conditions *sadness* I would post a photo of what it looked like, but it's so sad looking I don't want to make everyone else sad.

Poor things D: Oscars aren't the most active cichlid but they shouldn't be lethargic and sad, poor guys....

I've heard Oscars are very prone to hole-in-the-head disease and that's caused by poor water quality. :( I feel so bad for those Oscars.

yeah, they get it easily if water quality is bad, but the thing is if the water quality is fine they shouldn't get it at all :(

I have to go and clean/wax my car, later guys :P
