Puggle Posted December 1, 2005 Report Share Posted December 1, 2005 I went into a pet shop yesterday and all of their bettas had velvet. It's not the first time they've had obviously sick fish. I've pointed it out before and just get the standard "yeah, yeah, we'll take it out the back and treat it..." response. But it's still there when I come back the next day. Or there will be a new fish in the tank with the same disease because they didn't clean the tank. I hate just leaving them there, but I can't do anything. I've tried pointing it out to the staff on numerous occasions and it doesn't work. Another time I heard one of the staff explaining to a customer how bettas can't live in aquariums and those tiny overpriced containers are so much better for them. girl: They live in hoofprints in the wild, so they freak out with too much space. me: No, they live in creeks and rice paddies. They do really well in aquariums. girl: The breeders told us they need small spaces. me: I'm a breeder. girl: The overseas breeders told us... me: I've imported bettas from overseas. *mr puggle starts sneaking away like he doesn't know me* Is there any way to make them listen? They must be losing so many fish. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
