I actually went to petco that day with the intention of getting this other male CT that I saw the day before but you really had to look to even tell he was breathing. Then I saw this guy next to him and I figured out of the two - he had the better change of survival. I could obviously tell he was still breathing because his gills and mouth were moving rapidly.

Not only do they suck with petcare but they suck in the customer service department as well. At least the one in Alaska - they were at least friendly.

How hard is it to use a syringe to take out some old water and replace it with new??
