Back to Bettas...what to do? True rescue?
Hello all..it's been a while since I visited...I think my last post was early in the year. All my babies have since passed on and I have had empty tanks since May. My oldest blue boy fought until the end...he was a feisty guy but oh so old. Anywho...I was in Petco the other day ....I hate to admit that as I am a believer in supporting small businesses..but I needed to go for a certain item and on my way to check out I found myself starting at the Betta section. Argh!! I knew I shouldn't go over but I did ...and frig...what did I see...a rosetail male with his fins nearly rotted off his body. Boy was I infuriated ...I wanted to pick up his cup and run out of that place...but I put him down and vowed to check on him before Christmas.
Now the dilemma....do I go back and demand to speak to a manager about this guy and see if I can truly rescue him....or do I just leave him. The Petco/PetSmart debate is a tough one but has anyone had any luck getting a sick Betta for free??
Hope everyone is well ???? Happy Christmas.
