Unhappy I went to petco yesterday, it was so sad :(

I found three dead bettas, one king betta with a MAJOR infection in his face. Well, I bought a little female, she as sooo cute. She had a white body and her fins were red and blue. I named her Gloria.

Well I purchased her around 8:30 last night, and she was doing fine. She got along with Ruby and Delilah, my other 2 girls, and my guppies. I wake up this morning at 5:30 for work. I go to feed my fish, and she wasnt there. Scared she jumped for some reason, I looked around the floor around the tank. Nothing. So I lift the cave in the tank, and she was in there... dead. :(

So sorry to hear about Gloria :(

Quarantining is a great thing, especially when buying from a non-reputable store.
