Here is some on animal abuse (fish).
Store in West Edmonton Mall, 5 associates standing around in the middle of the aisle, they do see the customers but keep blabbing on to each other about nonsense.
Those stupid bubblegum tanks are half a gallon, and never cleaned. The algae takes over, mold in the water, and the fish rots away.
The betta display, well the cups are much too high for someone to see, even at my height (5'11").
The sorority of females in the tank, all have columnaris. The brackish water balloon mollies are wavering beneath the filter, or in the back, from stress. One female has a hole in her back, while one lays dying, another already dead.
Pet store associates do not care. The larger tanks, or the disgusting one at the front for display... Who buys a tank that looks like THAT? Which makes the fish look like THAT? Selling tactic? Unlikely.
