Thumbs down Sad sorry told on DP forum

"The funniest (and saddest) thing I've ever heard of a pet store clerk say was about bettas. Someone had pointed out that they had horrible fin rot and they had almost no fin left. The clerk said, "Oh, that's normal. They shed their fins every month.""

HE didnt think it was funni cuz the betta was ill just because the clerk was stooopid!

They SHED. Are you serious. These are fish not dogs. Geez if you work around something everyday you might want to learn about the animal.

But ya that is funny.

"Is there something wrong with that crab in there?"
"I dont know i dont know anything about those things" and ignores the crab. WOW.

I went in a petstore once and saw a betta at the top of his cup, floating. I told the girl that the fish had sbd. She picked up the cup and SHOOK it and he moved a little bit and she said, oh theres nothing wrong with him.
