Thats terrible! His fins were actually completely gone!!!! thats so sad!

Also is it bad to pet your betta fish due to the slime coat? cause Ive seen youtube videos of people doing that, and I wanted to try it sometime.

The fish had been mutilated purposely from the looks of it
I have the pics on my phone
Yeah petting is no no because it destroys the old slime coat and damages the fish leaving him open to infections
I saw that fish petting thing on you tube to.
Their fish probably has ick and is trying to scratch itself on their hands, people are so ignorant

What the---?!?! That is ridiculous! I would mail that photo to the regional office. If their bettas don't sell, especially due to employee recklessness, they may act on it. Who knows, it couldn't hurt. That is terrible though. I'd like to again state that I have a serious problem with stupid people.

By the way, it is against the forum rules to post videos depicting animasl cruelty.

Unless you at least have circumstantial evidence that the harm to the Betta was due to store neglect, that's just jumping to conclusions. The water in the cup is clear, and the other fish in the photo seem to be doing OK.

I'm not saying it shouldn't be brought to someone's attention, but it's possible some dumb kids; stupid, bored teenagers; or stupid, deranged adults decided to have a little bit of "fun" while no employees were around. People are out of control these days.

My fiance and I went to an out of town Petsmart and he found a fish swimming around in the toilet in their restroom. I highly doubt it was the work of one of their employees. (The fish was scooped out -- I think it was rescued in time.)
