UGH i hate people who don't take care of that stuff. it makes me angry to think that they can just open a store to make profit while the lives of many fishes struggle to survive to the next day. it's already bad enough that some customers come in and harass the fishes in the first place, at least the owner/employees should make up for it. i know b/c i've worked at a pet store. ugh

That's disgusting! I would've told them off. The fact that the other fish were well cared for just exemplifies the point that people view bettas as just disposable pets...they probably didn't even notice that anything was wrong and just thought that they were supposed to look like that >:(

Write to the store manager and tell them to rename the store "Pet's Hell" until they figure out how to care for their fish.

Makes me sooooooo mad!

Is the store a franchise or is it independent? If it was a franchise I'd say write the head of the company about it.
