That's so nasty! Ugh! How can employees walk by that every day and NOT notice how dirty the cups are? I've seen poop in cups but I've never seen it so bad that the water was green with algae... >/

Isn't that animal cruelty and against some sort of violation?
At my Petco I've seen a few dead bettas but never something that disgusting.

Call the S.P.C.A. to see if there is any further action you can take... To prevent them for repeating the neglect.

Personally, I would take photos and send them to head office.

I kinda want to go back and see if they actually cleaned out the cups. If they haven't I might go ask for the store manager or something. That is just unacceptable. Clearly someone is feeding all the fish, so there is NO excuse for them not to notice how horrible those conditions are. Seriously if you're not going to care for them, don't carry them!

yesterday at petsmart me and Iheartmyfishies were really creeped out by the dead ones that were floating vertically. I wanted to save all the bettas right then and there!
