Absolutely Infuriated... And THREE new rescues!

Ended up bringing home 3 rescues from Petco today... time to break out the old critter keepers temporarily! I was so upset at the state of the fish at petco that I literally started tearing up! The employees of course were not helpful. Just shrugged, and said he'd take care of them when he got around to it and walked away. Im not done though. The manager is going to get an angry phone call and letter from me and so will corporate! Its disgusting!

These guys are all in bad shape, I hope I can save them!

First is a little doubletail. I only got one picture of him in his cup, hes hiding in the back of his tank. he's extremely skinny, he has melty skins and he's no doubt suffering from ammonia poisoning!


His ammonia reading from his cup!


Next is a little multi Super Delta, he's suffering from ammonia poisoning and burns, and he's the worst off of the bunch.

And last is a cute orange Halfmoon who is missing most of his tail

All of them need names!! Any thoughts?

It's fantastic that you rescued them! I'd call the orange one Apollo or Blaze, can't think of any other good names though!

That is terrible! I thought our Psmart was bad!

For names, I watched Oh Brother Where Art Thou last night, so how about Everett, Pete, and Delmar? Everett means "brave and strong" which is positive thinking for one of these poor fellas. Pete means "rock" and Delmar means "of the sea."

The name Finnick came to mind for the first one.

May I ask which Petco it was? (Was it the one in Poughkeepsie?)

I actually love the halfmoon....
Times like these when wish I had more tank room to take in resuces :/

Like, I have a 10 gallon and a 5 gallon,but there's no room in the house because I on'y get a small room as my "property", and the rest is baby proofed :(

I'm so glad to see you were able to take these guys in before they were went to a home and mistreated.

I posted on the HM on your FB page too. I don't know if I will, but if I have the room I would like to give him a forever home once you have worked your magic. My heart just went out to him as soon as I saw the pic.
