Vinegar is a good cleaning supply for any general cleaning purpose, aside from a few surfaces I believe. Make sure it is white vinegar though, no balsamic!

Well, the guilt has overwhelmed me and so i talked to my boss. I'm going to pick the fish up at lunch time and he's going to stay here at the office and be a company mascot if he makes it :)

I'll pick up my tank and supplies from home after i've got the fish.

Thanks. My boss is also my dad so he's a bit of a pushover :)

Petsmart wouldn't sell me the fish. I pointed out the findot and the cashier took him away and wouldn't bring him back. She said he'd be treated in the store as it was against store policy to sell sick animals.

What is the likelihood that this fish will stay alive long? I'm going to check if he's back on the shelf tomorrow. I feel like an idiot for saying anything instead of just grabbing him and leaving. He'd been pushed right to theback of the shelf again but I found him.

I just feel so bad mow.

But will he, or will they kill/put him back Out on the shelf. If they put him back out ill go get him. I'm going back to check tomorrow.

Anyone who has dealt with / works at petsmart know what will happen?

Great news! I went back to the petstote to pick up the catfood I forgot to buy and guess who was back on the shelf? Little mr. Mustache :D (or a fish that looks eerily like him)

I snagged him up and made for the tills like a madwoman, I went to a different cashier ( who did ask if I'd been in earlier) and kept my mouth shut about fin rot.

He's acclimating now and is going to get aq salt treatment for his fins. His tail looks a bit odd, like maybe he has a birth defect or something. If I can get a good photo I'll post it later.
