My poor little beta! I would like to think that I could have saved his life, but I think I was too late!
I am furious with Petco's care for their pets. I bought my betta sunday, october 12, 2014 from the petco in dedham, ma. He was beautiful, but you could tell, something was different about him (he was floating on his side and then would swim around the container). I put him in his tank, with beautiful rocks, plants to hide in, and the appropriate temperature.
He was my first real pet, I was so excited. But when I put him in the tank, I noticed that he struggled to swim to the bottom, and he kept floating to his side, like he was dying. So I looked it up. It was swim bladder infection.
It is caused by poor care, specifically: poor water conditions and poor eating conditions. I felt bad for my little guy and had spent the rest of sunday looking up ways to help him. I tried feeding him, and he refused to eat on sunday, monday, and this morning. When I returned tonight, Tuesday, October 14, 2014, he was dead.
I am so infuriated that my beautiful betta is dead. They clearly do not care for their animals at Petco. How could they let that happen to him? How could they treat him so poorly?
I know he is a fish, but he deserves to live and Petco could care less. My little guy was treated poorly and someone will pay for this!
Reason of review: Poor Animal Care.
Preferred solution: Look into the Dedham, MA Petco, and make sure all the animals are okay!.
