i'm surprised my post didn't have massive typos. lol i typed it at four am, and didn't have my glasses on. >w>
elijahfeathers, go grabby him, if your walmart's doing good. then, type a letter praising them for how good their bettas look, compared to some you've seen. i would. Xd
i got my walmart to stop selling bettas(well. >.>; i dunno if it was just me, or a combination of others + me, but it boosts my tiny ego to say me. xD). they haven't sold fish in over ten years, then one day i went with my niece, and were shocked to see dozens of little cups on the shelves. i checked them all over, saw many were gross and nasty, then was stumped when i saw an empty cup. i set said cup aside, re-arranged the bettas so all could be seen, then ran to tell my mom. xD when me and my niece got mom to follow us, we saw more betta cups. i checked them over, saw how nasty they, too, were, then was horrified to see a cup with a CT, and another betta!
i went over to the empty cup, grabbed it, sat my behind on the floor in the middle of the isle, opened the lids, and scooped out the poor "loser", plopping him into the extra cup(which was probably his to start with). i was flat broke that day, otherwise i would have gotten him and a one-gallon tank, and wrote a stern letter. instead, i went home, got online, and wrote a long e-mail to the manager, telling him about what i saw and how horrified i was. >.>; he called a few days later, and apologized, and said they'd improve, and they did. for a few weeks. i went back, abotu a month later, and saw only three bettas, and they were pretty bad. :< my heart tugged one way, my brain the other, and my brain won. i went home, and wrote another letter. the manager again called, apologizing, and said that he wasn't gonna order any more bettas, and they haven't had any since.
