OMG!! So I had the day off, and since I am treating Spiderfish for ick, i called the company and found out i should also add another med into the water to prevent a 2nd infection where the ick is damaging him...well I decided to go around to some of the petstores from my childhood (haven't been to either in 20+ years)..thought it would be fun. I am investigating and learning more before making a larger aquarium downstairs...anyway..
First store Greenwood pets and plants, the bettas were in AWFUL conditions, in the darkest part of the store in tiny glass bowls, they wanted $11.49 for their delta bettas, had two of them and the one has totally eaten away his tail, he could of been such a beautiful fish! Water was turing brown in most of the bowls and they had so many
It was so sad, I really am trying to decide if I should go and rescue the tailbiter.
Second store Pet vendor, the betas are in a strange contraption inside of tropical fish tanks, about 2inches wide (yes you read right!) they can only swim up and down...in one tank the 2 bettas has a think white hair growing on them, they looked dead. So sad! I couldn't even believe it!
hird store Meijer grocery store: betas were literally in 2-3 inches of water couldn't even open up their fins
I think I am going to call greenwood and tell him that the fish I want is in bad shape and i will give him $6.00 for im...geez I don't need another fish!! the picture is what the betta fish's coloring is...blue and white (not the fish-took from a website) the other betta is a pretty red
