As some of you know, I work at petco. Tell me- what kind of SICK person would put to male bettas in the same teeny tiny cup, just to watch them fight before walking away?
That's exactly what a few customers did last week when the aquatics guy was busy at the other end of the department.
Luckily, neither fish died. But both were torn up pretty bad. They are in hospital tanks, slowly recovering.
I was going to take one home, but I simply don't have the room for another fish.
This was first class animal abuse. Like forcing dogs to fight. I can't believe someone would do this. The store is trying to come up with ways to prevent this from happening again, but so far we haven't come up with anything.
