Kroger...yea the GROCERY STORE

A friend of mine works at Kroger, and she called me to tell me they got a huge shipment of bettas in this week. They are selling them - in VASES with a rose - as valentines gifts. The staff were not given any instructions on how to change the water, feed, or anything like that. She was so excited, thought I would be too, thought I would "run right over' and see them all..

She didn't understand why I was not.

....did they check to make sure roses aren't poisonous to fish?
And the thorns?

x.x Not to mention the vase thing as a whole....I know I link to a betta care sheet if you have acess to a printer, make a couple copies for people to pick up?

That kind of sucks.
A care sheet is a good idea though!

I *hate* it when people can't see beyond profit, especially concerning living creatures.

So... For Valentine's Day you can give your girlfriend a fish that if given the chance will kill its mate when they're not in the process of breeding? Does anyone else find that kind of strange?

whoever came up with that idea is an idiot. I used to work at kroger a few years back, never saw anything like that then. but yeah its most likely people with the mindset that fish are just for decoration........and I hate valentines day too.
