I asked the guy watching the fish to change the water of the females (I was aiming for the least I figured I could get out of him) they looked the worst as they often do since they are not typicall as pretty as the males they get ignored. Sometimes I think that stores want to kill them. He said he didn't know how that he was just filling in for the night. I reminded him it wasn't right for them to be like that and you know. He got the manager and I think they were hoping I'd leave they were dragging quite bit. The manager was in the office.
At one point the employee ran what I assume was a log book for water changes. Finally the manager came out with a five gallon bucket and empty one and got to work. (about 30 minutes) I thanked him. I told him I hate buying bettas from a place that doesn't care for them properly. He told me the water is supposed to get changed Mon, Wed and Fri. Obviously it had not been done. I do believe some fish people who had coincidentally all called off that tonight will get a lecture. So if you have a little extra time for a betta sit in perhaps you can try this too especially if you buy one from the store.
He was changing all of the bettas water's not just the females. The unfortunate part is I saw they dump the betta and the dirty water into the dirty water and scoop them back up again with some of the dirty water and add clean. It's rough process and certainly not good for them but at least they were getting more clean water than dirty.
