Understandably you're upset, but was the first part really necessary? It just comes off as really rude imo...:/
Anyway, I'd agree that Walmart isn't likely the best place to get pet advice...I don't think they hire people specifically for their pet section? Someone can correct me on this, but usually I just anyone who works there at the pet section. In other words, they're not specifically trained/knowledgeable about pet care. You can try explainign that to your om.
One good thing they sell at Walmart are those preset tetra heaters. You can't adjust them, but for a 1.5 gal it'll keep the water at a nice warm temperature and they're quite reliable & cheap!
Anyway, as long as you keep up the water changes and get him a heater I'm sure he'll perk up in no time....:)
