Anyways, they all looked pretty good, and overall I was pleased with what I saw, except for the fact that the bettas probably could've used a water change, although it wasn't horrible. Other than that, I still wasn't happy that all of the fish in tanks, tetra, mollies, gold fish, gourami etc etc were still feeding on those weekend/vacation feeder tablet thing-ah-ma-jigs.

Saw the topic name and was even afraid to read. Get me upset, even hurts.
I walk to wal mart near me and i was shocked. I just stay there in front of the shelves and i couldn't move. I didn't want people see me. I just was crying. The worker came to ask what wrong I couldn’t talk. It was like 1 year ago. It was like 8 cups with bettas and 4 where dead. Other just in very bad condition. Other that were in bad conditions water was so dirty that you barely could see something in there.

I want to the manager. I ask corporate phone #.Actually the manager was very nice and understood my concern. When I called corporate I told them that it bad for the store reputation. Since it in the neighborhood with a lot of people who have kids it will influence the business. Because no mother will come to the store with a child to see dead fish.

I really don’t know what happened to that store. But I came back to check in about 2 month after I called and they didn’t carry fish anymore. I want to store manager and he told me they will not carry it anymore. But I really don’t know is it because I complained or something else. And they don’t carry betta fish anymore.
But when I go to some pet stores in my town some of them really bad :(. It so sad.

Was in the store today and happened to remember to check on the bettas, when I did, they seemed to be in ok conditions, and there was 3 small shelves of them on the end cap of the isle so that walking past, you'd see them. I had a looksy and ended up getting an orange VT :smh:

I'd should bring my own tank setup (maybe I should put it in one of those HUGE purses everyone uses these days) and put a betta in it and put a sign saying "happy betta, look in the cups for a half dead betta." I'm to much of a wimp to do it though.

I'd love to be able to have a little tank setup for a betta at work, it'd make sitting at my desk a little more enjoyable.
