No manager wants corporate to step in so most of them will get their act together if you send them a letter stating you are not happy with the care given to the fish and if you don't see improvement you will report the store. If they do nothing then follow up on your threat and actually report them to corporate (in fact... report the store along with sending the manager a letter). Let them know that you and your friends/family will no longer shop at that store and if conditions don't improve you will be notifying agencies like PITA and the HSUS along with alerting the media to the conditions of the animals at that store.
i agree with u. i have pet store next door to my work. the fish guy who usually work there left for 5-6 wk. and bettas where in terrible conditions. water on the bottom,and in a little bit of that water a lot of food so water was very cloudy.a few bettas were dead. and we talking about pet store!
i want back to the store when that guy came back and told him about that. he told me that in this situation we have to complain to corporate.
also we have pet smart and i know they changing water 2 times a week and they using betta water. so i think it also depend on people and manager who work there
i love bettas and it most abuse fish. my husband don't like me to go to pet store because i leaving crying. i get very obsessed with it. it's funny a lot of my co workers and friends have betta because of me.all together we have about 32-40 bettas. i have 8 and rest of them 2-3 bettas
