Yes, why I roll my eyes when people say to boycott some stores.. all it's doing is not allowing some fish to find a good home, but rather just sentencing them to death and the store gets money back. No loss for them, but loss for potential owners and for the fish.

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.

My Petco the Bettas stare and beg you for food. The Babies ge smaller food. The adults get Omega one. Ounce the Babies Pellets were too big. I showed the aquatics expert. He agreed with me and said someone made a mistake. It never happened again.

This evening I was at Walmart. Every time I go I visit the bettas and want to take them all. Tonight, they had 31... yes, THIRTY ONE, stacked and piled on their shelves. I felt so bad for the little guys, especially after I saw the one in the pictures below. I've seen dead ones at Petco as well.

That is another thing, when they stack the cups and leave them sitting next to each other. This causes stress because they can see each other and blocks off air for the bettas in the cups on the bottom...

At least Petco (or the one here) has little cardboard cubbies so they aren't stacked and they can't see each other.

I have seen dead and sick ones at Petco. But they always seem to have arrived there sick.
