I really hope you make it into pet care!! :) You'll be a wonderful addition and save the little lives there with your knowledge.
But def call that employee hotline to let them know what's going down in that sick room.

The last thing they want is for this to go public.
(similar story happened when Petcetera was here. A girl went to the media about the care of the small animals there. She was fired which brushed up the feathers of the public even more)

So sorry to hear about your day! But, what a better place to vent than this website? It was very smart of you to take the betta to immediate care. Just think of what a more non-responsible employee would have done? my guess: nothing. Do you buy your betta fish from Petsmart/petco? or do you rescue from stores such as walmart?

I refuse to patronize wal-mart, on conscientious consumer grounds. I have gotten my bettas from Petsmart! I'm working on inserting myself into the pet care department, it may take a little while but I'm hopeful!

Hoping you get the job... Imagine if every petco/petsmart had one of us forum members as workers :)

We would need a lot more members LOL

Fantastic! hopefully you'll start a new thread called: I got promoted!

Just remember, even if you don't, you can still take advantage of knowing you can bring them to immeadate care, and do your best to make sure a little fishy gets noticed and taken care of :)

I was as petsmart and petco yesterday and petco did a nice job of unstacking the bettas, petsmart did not. I don't work there but I spent 15 mins organizing and unstacking. Is there any training that happens there? And what's the blue water in the cups?

Well at the Petsmart I work at they don't stack the bettas, we have a rack with cup sized holes that each betta cup goes in to. The only time they are stacked is during transport on the stock cart, but they aren't stacked there very long. Not sure how other petsmarts do it... I don't know about training there either, there is totally different training for the Pet Care section! We don't have blue water here, but the petsmart across town does.. Kind of interesting. It's supposed to be from a water conditioning stuff that contains an anti-fungal treatment, but I am not really sure if anyone reaaally knows why it's blue! I have read on other sources that the blue is to lower stress by making it harder for them to see other bettas.. There is a thread on here somewhere devoted to the blue water!

I was told on another forum that the blue is Methylene (?) Blue, and it prevents fin rot in water that isn't changed often enough...

During my lunch venture to Petsmart today I noticed a little boy, labeled dragonscale, looked cellophane. I thought he was tinged reddish until I noticed it was a sore near his tail. I took him to the petcare employee, who is probably the only knowledgeable one there as far as fish. He said it was a fungal infection and took him off the sales floor and in for treatment.
