I went to Wal-Mart today, and as always stopped by the fish. Most had clean water, but the three needed water changes. No employees were in sight so I took it upon my self to change their water. I wish I had the set up to get them =[

That's generally what I do when there's a sink near the unattended bettas. Once, I used bottled water, but I usually don't have that on me.

They have a filter tap connected to their sink, and I just stand there and do the water changes. Really don't care if they see me. Or I use the "betta bottle" water.

It's so sad how some people/corporations are uneducated about the animals, or just don't care about them....its honestly disgusting. It breaks my heart to even think about all the ones left behind on the shelf when I leave the store :'(

What I don't understand is why they don't advertise WANTING knowledgeable staff! Really, do not understand why they hire semi-educated people for these jobs.

I don't understand that either. I read some where Polu heard that petstores buy bettas for like $1 a fish? Well, if they bu $50 worth of fish, and $25 of them die, they're still wasting money =/ Not to mention wasting valuable lives.
