Remember the Wal-Mart insanity from last week?

Well, I was in that same store to see what other nonsense they were up to and they managed to make matters worse..

A picture or two is worth volumes. This isn't even the half of it, they had at least ten Bettas triple stacked where the lower two tiers had zero chance of getting air.

threaten to get the health department involved if things don't improve. >:/ that's just slack as all heck on their part! e-mail them, and tell them that if things don't improve, you'll send these photos, and the other one, along with an e-mail to DHEC or some other health department. this is disgusting, slack, and a health hazard to the fish, the workers, and the customers.

Just a warning. You can get sued big time by walmart for even taking pictures in their store.
I would just call the health department and send them on their way to walmart if I were you.
I know I can't afford to fight a multi million dollar lawsuit today... doubt anyone else on here can either.

if walmart sues them, they gotta sue all the people on youtube as well. i don't think they'll wanna dish out that much money to sue that many people, who can't even pay their lawsuits. >.>;
