I don't blame you a bit, it makes me angry as well. Just don't let things like this make you bitter about humanity is all- in the long run, you'll pay more dearly for it than those whose acts made you that way and bitter people never made a better world for those yet to come.

I'm glad to hear that Miyko- if Wallyworld can't at least safeguard them from it's slimier shoppers and change their water I'd just as soon they didn't carry them... Breaks my heart every time I see them on that shelf and I just want to rescue them all. And that would only make matters worse because then their stocking computer would probably decide that this store was a hot spot for selling Bettas and place a double order...

Yayyy! I wish mine would do that. Did they tell you why?

Poor Betta.. may they all RIP.
SO DO I!! My dad doesn't get me at all... I just gotta move the worms out of the way! They always get stepped on and I always get sad. Once I saved a half-crushed worm from my dog and put it in Tupperware with dirt and a plant from outside. He recovered and I was so happy. I released him two weeks later. My parents thought I was nuts. :)

I am proud to say I own one fish! He lives in a 14 gallon jungle all to himself PAXTON is my double tail halfmoon featured in my icon :)

were your bettas not in cups????

also, a good sign, my larger walmart (not the same bad one) that has always had sad looking bettas, but not quite as horrible as the other one, seems to be shutting down its betta selling!!!! there were only 5 or 6 there today, and they were on the end, near the super cheap tanks, probably the clearance section, so i'll have to keep a watch and see if any new guys show up....hopefully not.......
