Today, I went to look at a new puppy for sale, and afterwards, we went to look at Pet Barn. I almost picked up one of the betta cups and threw it at an employee. It was disgraceful. Not even cups, but little dishes with lids is what most of the betta's were kept in. I noticed a beautiful halfmoon on the bottom of his dish, gasping for air, when I realised There was no air holes in the dishes
. I literally stood staring at the dishes, filled completley to the top with lids, that these fish were quickly going to suffocate to death, by some stupid pet-store employee who chucked out a dead betta while I was watching, cleaned the dish with a dirty tissue, and filled it up with some other fish's tank water, then put in a new betta. Three of the fish were being kept in a divided like tank, with less than a gallon and no heating as well. Another I found being kept on a display stand, in a tiny divided thing which was almost falling of the edge. I pushed it back upright, and the little guy swam over to me and started following my finger against the glass. I felt sorry for all those fish in there, who were destined to die, a quick and painful death.
I was literally in tears as I left the store.
