Both the walmarts in my area have had really great fish overall ( not just bettas). I was surprised, I'm probably going to go there tonight and pick up some Pictus Catfish.

I stop in at night and catch the guys who work the area and remind them to wash their hands real quick before they handle the fish.

I also stop in and make sure the day pet crew knows one pellet every 3 days and sometimes I stick up blank business cards with www.bettafish.com on the back and "these are fed carefully to not soil their water, please don't feed" written on the front.

I got Emo, Emerald, Pearl, Cambi, Purp, Moon and Goat at walmart, batting much higher for personality, health and looks than petco.

Shame walmart doesn't carry fancy tails.

Cambi was brilliant calico on white cambodian body.
Moon was translucent plum. Emerald was bold green.
Pearl was brilliant yolk and blue rays the color of the bottom of this forum.
Emo was black-violet-blue-purple-red and huge.
Purp was raspberry with purple sparkles.
Goat is very very attentive but not demanding. Probably the most perfect offhand companion we've had.

Compare that to Sherbert, the only superb betta I've gotten from petco.

The idea of leaving a card with the foums website is INGENIOUS!!!!!!

My walmart guys have AMAZING colors compared to what I have seen at pesmart (and were kept in worse conditions)

Hercules- my first walmart rescue, got him for free after he was put in another bettas cup and torn up, hes a RED VT with faint purple
King- was in the same cup as Hercules, solid blue VT-CT mix? has a raggedy look
Pickle- after watchin "her" get wors ndworse over three weeks I finally got the "girl" who turned out to be a boy, SBD and slight finrot, turned out to be a forest green spadetail with purple, red, green, and light blue mixed in
Chile- severe ammonia burns and his fins were ALL curled and clamped, turned out to be a prettyred cambodian with a spadetail
Alpine Ice- SBD- male white betta with faint pastel blue
Flagg- SBD- red butterfly male with faint pastel
Shoebox- pink/purple "mini" betta, SBD? (just got him yesterday)
Hurricane- CT GREEN male betta, SEVERE SBD and bloat
Finn- had fin rot SO bad he was left with NO fins, pretty violet CT

RIP Wildfire- had a white body with orange fins
RIP Chance- had a CLEAR(cellophane) bodyand fins

I <3 Walmart Bettas :)
