Just Thought of Something...

so, we all hate the nasty, disgusting conditions many pet stores/walmart keep their bettas in. well, a user on here posted this:



i may be wrong, but isn't something like that... like... a health violation? nasty, dirty, germy, stinky, disgusting, stagnant water, sitting around in cups that are probably often dumped. that cup there, has a crack in it, and you know the nasty, dirty, germy, stinky, disgusting, stagnant water drips out of said crack.

can't places like walmart, petco, petsmart, ect get in trouble with, like... DHEC, or something for things like that? add in all the dead, fungusy, rotting betta corpses, and you have all sorts of nasties added into it.

just a random thought that popped into my mind today while thinking about things like that.

Now that you mention it...people could get sick from being around these kind of gross containers. I'm not sure if they could get in trouble but they should. That's a major concern. Who'd want to walk around in a store with filthy containers everywhere that have been cracked?

i'm lucky to rarely see gross cup's. Zidane's was the worst, with fuzzy mold-stuff growing in it. fixed that, though. haven't seen a gross tank/cup or sick/dead betta since. :d i'm gonna try to stop by my local petco this weekend(in time for that horrid build-a-betta event. Dx) and see how it is. :d bring my camera, to either show off, or tell off. >.>;

OMG! Mine is doing that too. I would enter is if I could have a 5gal tank rather than a 1 gal bowl :/ So not worth 10 bucks.
