OMG! WalMart called me!

I recently sent an email to Walmart asking them to not sell tiny tanks net to betta fish because beginners usually go to Walmart and trust them, especially since the .3 gallon tanks say "ideal for betta fish".

Guess who just got a call that said that they would tell the manufacturer?!

I doubt that anything big will come of this, but at least something is being done! I'm so proud of myself. :D

Sally, I will always love you. You were my babygirl and the gateway to my bettabug. Thank you.

*Gasp* Great Achievement!!!They better stop selling!

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

These pics are really what sparked all this. I joined WalMart's website, then emailed them. On the product pages, people can ask questions, and a lot of people were asking questions about cleaning/feeding and such, and I linked them to this site and dismissed crappy answers. If one fish has a mildly happier life because of what I did, I'm happy.

Guys, one person can do a lot, but multiple people multiply what that one person can do! Please email WalMart! They do ask for a phone number, but they don't text you any craziness or anything. Someone local called me, so my WalMart might be a little better, but what about yours?

Great job! Hopefully something good will come of this!!!

The best way to help is to be forgiving. People aren't made with a book of ultimate information in their head. We need to inform, not insult; give advice, not lectures; and realize we're all human and we all make mistakes
