So,t he store manager apologized for the workers actions. He did back them up and explained I was asked to leave because I opened items before paying for them and he said it was just like I had opened chips and began eating them. He recognized I was a regular customer and would like for me to continue to be.

I explained to him why I did it and he agrees there needs to be a change. He is calling his higher ups to see what he can do. So, we will see what happens.

Whoever said money can't buy happiness forgot about bettas.

Lol, he is "calling his higher ups" I highly doubt he will even bother. Probably just told you what you wanted to hear.

I'm in a small town where everyone knows each other and where ones word is their worth. I believe him, or at least give him the benefit of the doubt until I'm proven otherwise.

Fair enough, I just assumed if it's anything like my Walmart that's how it would be. Must be nice to live in a town like that. I envy you.

Nope, I grew up in a tiny town in Iowa, too. I HATED the fact that everyone knew everybody. No privacy. It was awful. I love living in a big city now.

The bettas:
Romeo - HM male | Tzekel-Kan - DTHM male | Nemo - CT(?) male | Akio - DTHMPK male | Ares - Delta male | Diablo - SD male | Nameless - VT male | Nameless - DT female
The others:
The Fab Five: Green cory catfish | Maximus: Golden mystery snail | Ichabod & Rosa: African dwarf frogs
Swim in peace, Gaston.

I've only called and emailed the corporate of Wal-Mart for our fish section once. ALL the freshwater tanks were infested with Ick so badly that you could barely tell the color of the fish they were so spotted and white. I was so upset, there were dead fish laying everywhere, it was horrible. Not only that but they were SELLING these animals that were sick and contagious. I got several phone calls and the assurance it would be taken care of, checked a week later and most of the fish looked better, they actually treated them and cleaned all the tanks. Actually paid someone over time to come in on their day off to do it fast, which Wal-Mart NEVER does, it was that bad.

I won't open a new container but I will rummage in the cabinets and find food and do water changes for the bettas and hide the dead ones so kids don't see them in the sink, but always have a Wal-Mart employee standing there while I do it. :P

So New update. Sadly, Paxel didn't make it, he just refused to eat. At least he passed warm and comfortable.

On the good note, the rest of the three are thriving. I can finally tell what kind they are now that they've unclamped their fins. Minion is the regular royal blue VT but I'm surprised to find that Hans Solo is a butterfly DT and Goober (now named Luke) Is a RT! I can't really tell their colors yet. I'll wait a week or two to take pictures for you guys and maybe their colors will pop.
