It seemed like she cared more about the store reputation than the health of her fish, bluntly refusing that they had ich and refusing to even look at them o_O (from her behaviour, I could tell that she knew they had ich too, blargh)

No point buying am overpriced abused betta to contribute to further betta abuse. Honestly even for petco they try harder...
only problem is, they order in too many darn betta fish.
I see the store attendant try and change the water but you need to hire someone as a FT water changer with two hundred cups...

Haha best one was when the girl got all worried about me purchasing a female betta (she had served me in the past and actually seemed keen on learning more about bettas) because she knew I had males. She told me that I shouldn't put them in together because they had tried it at their store and the fish had fought and I think one had gotten killed.

Astounds me the level of training not needed to sell a living, breathing creature.

Good luck with your new baby. Hopefully it isn't as naughty as Kuro.

Nice. I had a night cashier at walmart question me about them because she strongly suspected that I was fighting them. No, I was looking for females for my soerity and for some reason the walmart in Fairbanks, Alaska got in bettas that could rival the ones on AB. I would go after I got off work at like 2 AM and naturally they only had like 1 cashier. Don't even get me started on the BS I have been told by petco...
