I have great news about the white elephant ear. I called Petco today and spoke with the manager. He was a super sweet guy. He went back and asked the fish guys about the betta. He said that Brian saw the fish this morning when he came in and he is now taking care of him. Brian is one of the fish guys that actually knows his stuff, so I feel great about that. Brian is going to take him home and try to nurse him back to health. The manager said that there was no reason that the betta was put back on the shelf in that condition and that he was going to have a talk with the girl who accepted the return. I also told him about the Crowntail I saw yesterday, it's fins were all curled and he just looked terrible. He said that he would make sure Brian knew about him and that they would set him up in a tank in the back and see if they can help him as well. He also offered me a free betta but I refused. I told him that I just wanted to make sure that these 2 guys were taken care of.
