i went to walmart today just to look. The one betta they had was dead and rotting
I take my dog into petco every day because he likes to go "shoppylifting", there were some there that I wanted but lack of funds preventing me from getting the one i wanted. He was a red and white Double Tail and has serious fin issues.
*sigh* Try working in a pet store. I've been back to work for two months and have 4 bettas. What makes it even worse is that when fish orders come in I'm the one who deals with the bettas *facepalm*
Ouch. But considering it's been two months and you only have four bettas, that's pretty good. Buuuut, the good thing about you working at a pet store is that the bettas have someone who is knowledgeable to deal with them. So those are lucky bettas.
Quick update: still no clue what color she is. Now she kinda looks rusty black-gray. She's still shy so I don't too much of her but I think she ate the bloodworms I left in the tank for her. My male got sick last night so I wasn't able to spend as much time with my new girl as I normally would have. She's spunky though, already tried to jump out while I was changing her water.
Thank you! I can't wait until she settles in and I can see what color she'll be. I think she's a veiltail but I'm not sure, her tail's a little ragged. Her anal fin is pretty messed up too but it's not infected so that's good.
I went back to Petsmart today to get some sand and I managed to walk out with just the sand, a net breeder, and some frozen daphnia. No fish! But I did check on the pretty girl I put back last night and she's still there, all clamped up. My resolve is weakening . . . soon I'll make up an excuse to go back to Petsmart and just happen to pick up another fish . . . and a hamster or two. Quick, someone set up that hotline now!
