Did you go to the manager? You should just make the manager aware so he could keep a close eye on the fish section and for losers like that in the future. I hate when punk kids like that think they can just do whatever they want, poor betta.

Sorry just read the other comments. Yeah the manager is a jerk. You should take this matter up with the superintendent I bet he will not only fire the punk kid but the manager as well.

I had to reread this twice to make sure I read it right ! I would email/call the head people in the chain and/or get him fired by talking to the manager also(opposite order). I never knew oscars could eat bettas.

Sheesh this is just terrible. Really gives us teenagers a bad rep when others of us do this kind of stuff. Not good.

I hope those kids dont target your son! Teach him how to swim convict!

Oscars will eat/attempt to eat anything small enough to fit (sometimes only half fit) into their mouths.

Although I agree that what the kids did wasn't right, I wonder...

What if.. they were feeding fish live bloodworms/maggots/fruitflies or so?
Would everybody be as ticked off as is now the case? those are living creatures too, but most will accept feeding them to fish...

I've seen most LFS owners here feed live fish to predatory fish, "just" some cheep barbs or minnows, but hey, predatory fish need food too.
(mostly not during opening hours when there's public, but some don't care)
So maybe his boss doesn't really care for the fish as well as for the money...
