Another Walmart vent

I know, I know, but Walmart will be receiving a HUGE complaint from me. Two weeks ago, I saw these female king bettas and was disgusted. I went back today for something else and guess what. They STILL haven't changed the 1" of water in the cups.



I am SO pissed. I almost bought them all just to get them out, but I know... supporting the beast. I have some more pics I'll upload later if anyone cares.

And yes, that fish (there is one in there) is alive still.

I had my kids with me and they are really sensitive. So I'm going to write an email, a letter, and make a phone call to make sure that these pics get where they need to.

what's even crazier is that in scrolling thru my iPod I found pics I took of these same fish when that first got there. it was at least 3weeks ago. it sickened me to see the difference.

Okay, here are some of the same fish. I took their pictures when they first arrived. They are dated June 22nd, which was 3 weeks ago? I don't think they've been tended to since then.





that third one is EXACTLY the same fish as in my original post.

Here are the other pics which I intend to email to Walmart.






I'm about to write up my complaint. Sheesh. I am sickened. I honestly think that if I DID buy one just to get her out of there, she'd not survive the shock and transition.

I would buy one, because if one person doesn't buy one, that doesn't mean that oter people won't, and if you don't, maybe go back and clean the cups out yourself, I've seen it done and the walmart people don't usually notice*Poor fish:(*
