Angry Seriously, Petco, what the hell?

So I went to Petco to buy my sister a fish and saw they had an elephant ear for sale. I've been wanting to buy one for a long time now, but when I picked up the cup I was greeted with this.


One of his eyes is halfway rotted out, his fins look like **** and he just looked miserable. I mentioned his state to an employee and he just took him and left him on a sink. So I grabbed him super quick and decided to buy him. At the register the girl kept telling me "Oh he's active, and healthy I'm sure he'll be fine."

That doesn't even BEGIN to excuse the fact that he is in this state in the first place.

Poor guy. I would have been terrible to leave him at that sink.

None of these places give a d** about the animals. They are just product like a can of dog food.

Petco better not have charged you the $30-$40 they charge for EEs in this area. The poor guy is in horrendous conditions. It's despicable. He looks like he would have been a really nice betta.

I sincerely hope he pulls through and heals.

They actually charged me $20 which is full price here. Worth it if I can keep him alive.
