Guy Buys Ugly Betta Fish That Is So Neglected It Starts To Rot In Petsmart, Completely Transforms Her

Fish make great pets! They are cute, sociable and have great personalities of their own, while an aquarium can make a beautiful addition to any home.

This guy agrees. He REALLY likes his fish. Addressing the pet store he got his new betta fish (also known as Siamese fighting fish) from, his profanity laced rant, in defence of the fish he felt was grievously disrespected by the staff there, is just glorious.

When he went to Petsmart to pick up his new pet, it’s fair to say he was not impressed with what he found there. And he did not hold back! Perhaps he was still emotional from the passing of his previous best buddy, who described as “fierce AF”. This fish, also a betta, had recently died in tragic circumstances. “Goddamn bladder infection took him too soon man. Too soon.”

We just love to see somebody as passionate about their pets as this guy is, and the fact that he writes in such a hilariously colloquial manner, on the random platform of Craigslist for some reason, just makes it all the better. The lucky fish, so disrespected by the pet store, is now doing great under his care, so it’s a happy ending for all involved! Scroll down to check out his tirade below, and let us know what you think in the comments!

I grew up with a fossilis cat fish. My mom bought him when she was a student. He celebrated an 18th birthday and I was so sad when he died(RIP, Pancho). I was 14 at the time. Don't think that just because it's a fish it doesn't deserve to be cared for and loved. It's got it's own unique personality, it's special, it's a pet, just like any other. If you love your iguana, parakeet or fancy rat, then you can love a fish as well.

Exactly. My father-in-law got an Oscar fish and he was the funniest thing ever. Whenever I'd go over to the house and sit by the tank, he'd spit rocks at the tank wall to get my attention and then we'd make faces at each other. It was hilarious! He was the best fish friend I've ever had. I miss that big guy.
