New Petco betta event...

"Meet the Critters
August 18 & 19, 1pm - 3pm
Take the plunge into Betta fun with a weekend devoted to these beautiful, easy-to-care for fish."


*face palm* I feel like showing up to one of these and just telling people to buy actual tanks for them. On a tumblr post I found that tipped me off to this event, people will play games and "enjoy" pals rewards on betta kits.

Did my compliant just go into the circulation file?

What do you mean by pals rewards for betta kits.

You get savings on betta kits. I think they are talking about those 1/2 gallon kits.

PLEASE tell me this is just a cruel joke?!?! If the stores can't even take care of them properly, they shouldn't be giving everyone else bad advice! Is this taking place at all Petco stores? If it is, I might just pay them a visit.

It's really "abusive propaganda" .. .. what pet stores tell its customers is acceptable betta care.

Here is the picture...I might just take the care sheets they already have (a pint for a betta? really?!) and put my own info in.

I don't think anything will stop them. People will buy bettas and shove them into bowls. "They are just fish right?"

I know. I know nothing will get them to stop abusing their Bettas, but we can hope, and dream. And complain. :P

Just in time for back to school. Buy your kid a fish that they won't take care of. But its ok because they're "low-maintenance" right? :)
