Our bettas from Walmart.

Dagora the black one faked us out, we thought he was close to death - not active, wouldn't respond so we bought him as a rescue. Got to the car and he was the most active fish you have ever seen, happy as can be and absolutely beautiful.

The blue one is Spoiled Brat, he's my fish. We moved him across the room from my chair and he pouted for a week with clamped fins and wouldn't eat, until we moved him back to the tank beside me.

The red one is Class Clown (Mean ass) he is an onery thing, constantly charging at my boyfriend and anything new we put into the tank. Funniest thing you have ever seen.

My last Walmart betta lived until he was over 2 years old. I used to always buy my fish from Walmart because I felt like I was saving them - I had saved probably 6 or so over the past 10 years. I will admit I didn't really know what they needed though, and although the last few had a 2 gallon tank they did not have a heater nor the proper water changes. Still better than life in a dirty cup, though. All of my current bettas are from Petco/Petsmart. My local Walmart has CT and VT males and just started carrying VT females. I always look at them when I go there but just get depressed because most of them are dead and in really nasty water. :( I might consider saving another one when I have room for it. All of the Walmart bettas in this thread look great, good job everyone! :)

Wow! I can't believe you found those at Walmart! I only see reds and blue males and green females at mine.

I saw this fish today at walmart and I felt so bad for him!! He wasn't with the other fish, in hardly any water, and not able to move much because of the lack of water I'm assuming. He seemed alert though. So I decided to rescue him. I'm far from a betta expert so I'm hoping someone can help me find out what he is.





Not the best pics, but I didn't want to bug the poor guy. He hasn't flared, but he's swimming like crazy.

I might make another post if no one replies so I can get some help. Does he look sick? Is he definitely a he? The lid said veil tail. True?

Looks like a male veil tail to me! He's gorgeous, so glad you saved him! He doesn't really look sick to me, just a bit thin.

Thanks...I'm far from an expert. I figured anything would be better than living in that less than half filled cup even for a short time if he is/was sick. I'm still nervous about him because of the conditions he was in.
