Im glad the Bettas in your Walmart stores look decently healthy (except for MistersMom's pics.)... The ones in mine are emaciated, eat up with fin rot, and really sad and hungry looking :( I also saw a few dead. If I could have, I would have brought them all home and nursed them to health, but I don't have the room... Only enough for Mr. Sherman Whitmore.

Here's my "Fresh from the cup crew"

Don Quixote was in filthy water with a poop cloud.


Diablo was lethargic, the fish next to him was in the process of dying.


Dulcinea looks pretty healthy, her water was dirty though


Lillith's water was actually ok.


And so was "blue's"


Can you believe these girls were in cups?!

Good for you, rescuing those fish. I don't look at the Bettas in my Walmart, except when I'm buying, they only keep six at the most I think, thankfully.

My Wal-Mart has thankfully given up trying to sell bettas, but their were about 15 tetras in a 5 gallon- 10 dead and sucked up against the filter, and 5 close to death.

I wish I had better pictures but these two were the first bettas I have ever owned and they came from walmart.

Trogdor



He didn't look unhealthy when I got him. Constantly built bubble nests and lived for about 5 years.

Elric



He was in bad shape. He was the sickliest fish there and was sitting on his side at the bottom of his miserable little cup. I brought him home and while he never became 'pretty' I would like to think I improved his quality of life. He lived for about three years.

Beau a couple of days after I bought him:


And here he is about 3 weeks later:


That rip in his tail is almost healed, that was taken on Monday. I actually don't think he's full VT, his dorsal fin has points on it like a CT.
