Unhappy Troubled Bettas At Petstore!

Okay, so I just got back from a petstore. (I'm not going to name them.) ALL of the Betta fish their are mislabeled as far as my mother and I can tell. Babies called adults, adults called babies, fish labeled two different fin types. My mother just spent the last half hour arguing with the lady until we final got our new little friend.

You should have seen the fish there, some of them were in the little cups with so much dead skins and putrid food and feces on the bottom.

I'm not trying to slander them or anything, it's just looking at how deplorable things are really makes me want use curse words right and left. UGHH...

And my day's been sour ever since, I felt down our flight of stairs with my new little friend in my hands. I'm glad I saved him at just the last moment as I fell otherwise he would have been a goner. ):( My ankle took some damage though. DX

The poor thing, his fins are slightly shredded. He really a beautiful fish though, with all of his colors, too. Here's a picture of him: (He's unnamed as of right now, he might get named Lightning, but I'm not quite sure yet.) Also, they're a little blurry, and you can't see all of his colors like you would in the light. But I still think he looks stunning, the poor thing.

He's a gorgeous fish! I hate it when pet stores aren't nice with their bettas. :(

By the way, what do you guys think of his fins? What tail-type do you think he is I mean? Some help identifying his fins would be nice. Thank you all. ^.^

Beautiful boy!!!

Petco right? I recognize the cup, lol. I had it out with my local petco today, they do not like me right now. I even took a video of how bad the fish in the store were today, I'm going to send it to them along with the ammonia test results I took from the cups of the 3 bettas I ended up coming home with!

And yes, I see... Good for you that you're standing up to them and sending them that information. It's just terrible some of the things going on. D:(

Yes, the sweet little fella. ^.^

And I think I'm okay, it just hurts. I think I might've pulled some tendons or something. But everything's all good. I'm just glad I got this little fella home safe. ^.^
