:( Couldn't save a little female

I saw her at Petco while getting frozen foods...Noticed a cup was empty, and then saw she had either jumped into another female's cup, or some idiot put her in there...She was alive but badly beaten.
I showed it to the employee and they just put her back, even though she'd be dead shortly without some special care.
I brought her home & put her in critter keeper w/ a hydor mini & hiding spot. She was moving around more a few hours later, but then in the morning was dead. :( I didn't know about aqaurium salt..that might have helped? Sorry little girl!

You tried your best...

Did you adjust her to the water temperature and the water?
