walmart sucked. badly. Remy was a betta i tried to save, because he had nearly no tail, was pale with deep black stress stripes, and was in nasty water. he died after about two days, poor boy. D: he was fought, because no one is ever there to watch the fish.
thankfully, they stopped selling bettas.
my petsmart is nearly as bad. all the bettas, while in clean water, had SBD, except the boy i picked up, a lovely black-bodied veil with deep red fins, with the faintest hint of electric blue on his top fin. sadly, he died the night i brought him home. D:
