Thumbs down OMG Walmart!!!!!

If you think keeping bettas in a small cup is bad, listen to this!


I saw a bunch of cups, at Wal-mart the other day, that had TWO plecos in each!!!!!!! And they were fairly big plecos too. They looked extremely unhappy.

UGH!

I know, right? I seriously hope this was just a mistake and won't start becoming the "norm" around the country.

Did you ask anyone at Wal-mart why they were in the cups? Did you let someone know that you felt that was unacceptable?

Unfortunately most of the walmart employees, supervisors, and managers don't care

I hate walmart. The only reason I don't try to rescue them is because that would just increase demand ':[
