What I seen at Wal Mart...Pretty Sad!
The cups at my local Wal Mart are getting smaller again! In the beginning they were small drinking cup sized that held like a half cup of water, but then they went up to the size of a wider taller container that holds 2 cups of water,(I know it is 2 cups because I use those to hold my Bettas while I do a complete water change) but now I seen yesterday that they were down to a shorter version of the 2 cup size. I looks as if it may hold about a cup of water maybe. But they still don't fill it up enough like they used to in the past. They all had like an inch of water to swim in. The water was clear and clean looking but I bet the Ammonia and stuff like that was built up in the water. Poor Bettas!
At least the 2 cup ones filled up are better than the old and new ones! In one Wal Mart I seen each separate tank with one Male Betta in it with fish it gets along with like one tank had Danios and one Male Betta, the next had White Clouds and one Male Betta, etc.. (No Bettas in the Guppies or Oscars tanks etc.) and one tank that was way bigger and longer than the rest with all Female Bettas in it and they got along well together. And unlike most other Wal Mart stores, that one had no fish that were sick with ICK or dead for some reason. But that was YEARS ago. That would be way better than the cups if more did it that way.
