It's the sale of all the other items. I do NOT purchase any supplies from Walmart, due to their treatment or lack thereof, of their Bettas. I would not have a problem walking into Walmart and rescuing one of our finned friends. But where you can make your statement is in the not purchasing food, filters, heaters, tanks etc. Where you can really get your point across is in the education of people on Betta Splendens. Most ppl are truly ignorant to the proper housing, temperature and feeding. These little fellas end up in 1/2 gallon tanks or decorative wall hangers and vases, without proper oxygenation and nutrition. When you're at the Pet Store and see someone picking out those types of items, just take a minute to teach them o thing or two. If you can get your message to through to just one person at a time, your helping to save one little Betta at a time.
Well I'm gonna consider walking through and seeing if one of our local store has a sweet boy or girl that needs some extra tlc. Thanks for all the input and messages of condolences
