Went to Petsmart again.

No, I didn't get another betta but I thought I'd share what happened. I was looking at the bettas, of course, and there was a guy walking around looking at stuff. I walked over to look at heaters and he walked by to talk to an employee. They walked over to the bettas and were talking. The guy had gotten a little light that clips onto small tanks. I walked over to the bettas again and the employee asks me what temperature I kept my bettas at so I told him. The employee said she keeps hers at 70 degrees. I guess thats how warm it is in her house. I informed the guy that bettas prefer warmer temperatures because they are tropical fish and that 76 to 82 is optimal. He asked me if bettas were more active in warmer water and I said yes. The employee let me talk and answer questions. I also found 2 more dead bettas and one with sbd. This girl is probably tired of me coming in there and bringing her all the dead ones and sick ones.lol Maybe it will make her more conscientious. lol

The last time I went in there, I did the same thing. She told me she had been gone for 4 days and hadn't had the time to look at the bettas. I found a dead one then, too. She didn't say a word to me then but then she followed me down the aisle and asked me if there were any more that needed to be taken care of. I'm tempted to ask if I can have one of the sick ones for free to see if I could nurse it back to health.

Good for you, dramaqueen! I never have the guts to say anything like that, especially if they're older than me.

Usually there is no one to be found in the fish section when I'm there, so I just place the dead ones front and center on there little "desk" that they have.

Good for you! Somebody's gotta speak up for the little guys if no one else will. My Petco is amazing and I've never seen a sick/dead betta in there, but if there ever is one I'm definitely going to mention it. If you don't make a big deal about it, people won't care, unfortunately.

I'm hoping it embarrassed the employee enough to make her take better care of the bettas.It would embarrass me if I were her!
