It was the best decision I made, Gibs has been a blessing in my life. And now he is a ton better than what he used to be. Walmart is the worst, my friend once said she saw them with bettas in cups stacked on top of one another covering the holes that gave them air. So stupid. I think we should email the corporate headquarters of all these places, Petsmart, Walmart, Pet Valu, all of them, these fish are living, breathing, sentient creatures and they deserve the best just like every other animal in the world.
Me and my friends stack them in two because our walmart shoves the bettas far back (even if they're ALIVE). Their lids have smaller holes on the edge of the cup which allows us to stack them. Also this guys who stocks the fish thinks I'm crazy (
) for knowing so much and complaining so much.
