Store Fish Tanks : Veiwer Discretion Advised

I've taken several photos of appauling tank conditions, and of dead and dying fish. If you've taken any pictures of fish, you don't have to have bought them, then post them here, the tanks and everything! Maybe it will get some attention from a CEO or something? I can only hope.
I have a tank with a bone yard, fish with ich, and a few sickly and dead bettas.

Are you sending them to someone at the company headquarters? Posting them on here only confirms what most us already know, most fish stores don't take proper care of their fish.

This is sad, especially because some of those betas are quite beautiful.

I've gotten to the point that if I find dead bettas I take them with me to the register and ask the cashier "how much for the dead ones?" Maybe I can embarrass them enough to tell the boss!

I actually asked for a betta that had NO tail fin for free and they told me no. i was like 'so your gonna make me pay full price for a half a betta, knowing it will probably die tonight? Even though I'm buying 40$ worth of stuff?"
The manager guy was like 'yeah, we can't give them away'
I told him that some one had before and gave me a questionable look.
I argued with him enough to get it for 10 cents though. I was p*ssed.

That's awful! Was that a particular store you were at? My local Petsmart takes pretty good care of their bettas. The Petco here though, had some pretty sickly looking ones. One betta had ah huge growth on his side; it was really sad. You definitely should send those pictures to the HQ to try to get betta conditions improved.

I feel terrible seeing them "housed" like that, and really, forgotten. :(
