Two Bettas in a cup!

Was at the petstore yesterday when they opened up their Betta shipment and one of the cups had TWO bettas in it! The employees were mortified! The water was very yellow. Could that be from blood? Anyways, one of them had 50% of his fins ripped off and the other was a bit shredded as well. I went back today and the little guys were feisty and eating well. So glad one wasn't dead. Just wanted to share. The up side is I got first pick from the box and scored my gorgeous Matisse( my avatar).

That's the second two-bettas-in-one-cup incident this week! Really....
But Matisse is beautiful :)

Two bettas in a cup... I WISH I could say that's some new news. But I've seen it before...ugh. Worst things ever. "Customers" definitely did that to them. I'm glad they're both fine!

I think a betta's blood is red? Not sure. I've only read "if your betta has faced physical damage, look for any pinkish water, or red streaks from his scales." I'm assuming the "streaks" is the blood, and the "pinkish water" is diluted blood. But really, YELLOW water? Ugh. I'll take your word for it that they were mortified and actually had feelings for the poor critters. ~

I don't think the customers did it this time. Also, beautiful boy you have there.

I saw them open the box. All of the other water was blue. In fact it was the tainted water that was noticed first. It stood out in the bunch. Perhaps it was a careless accident by the shipper when they "cuped" the fish for sale. I've seen the posts about the doubled up'd ones from Walmart. That probably was an evil customer's doing. I just can't understand people.

Oh, that's entirely my bad. Must have missed that. I still don't understand the yellow water - anyone have a guess for that? It does make me feel better that customers didn't do it. However, makes me more interested in the back story.
