This is really not true...
I've had fish one of my fish from Walmart live for months before he died and it wasn't even due to health. He jumped into the other side of the divider and fought with my other fish. He even had popeye and fin rot when I got him and was in a cup with rotting plants and dirty water.
Yes, some Walmarts are horrible with fish, but that doesn't mean all are. Mine have since improved when I got my walmart rescue. So much so it's hard to choose which store (Petsmart, Walmart or Petco) has the best fish care. They're all excellent these days.
My new guy Ty is from Walmart as well and he's healthy and active.
I feel like some people blame the stores because it's an easy out...
