Angry Evil Wal-Mart!

O.K. so I was in Wal-Mart a couple days ago and I decided to go browse their Betta section They had a female sorority and the females were SO unhealthy some were clinging to the filter about five were dead at the bottom and there was only about two in swimming condition! I was steamed the least they could do is put decor in and treat the sick fish and take out the dead ones! Ugh! I hate Wal-Mart!

I would love for our Wal-Mart to stop carrying Bettas it irks me that they only care about the Money! It just animal cruelty there should be a penalty for cruelty against fish! It's just so saddening....

Does your walmart carry other kinds of fish as well as Betta? Our walmart used to have tanks and tanks and so many of the fish would be dead! It was the most awful thing to look at. They thankfully remodeled their sections and got rid of all their fish and sell none now. But they do still sell aquarium stuff thankfully

Walmarts can be bad. Thankfully my walmart isn't to bad right now. They actually take care of their fish. I agree some walmarts should not have fish, but when a walmart is taking better care of them then some pet stores then I would rather walmart had them but ONLY if they care for them.
