And everyone acts like I'm crazy for giving Drax a 10Gal tank all to himself (for the time being, will get more community fish or separate the tank). I'm just giving Drax what he probably never had c:

Wow. Who knew?

well walmart's bettas are actually transported a bit better they are transported in cups rather than these plastic bags. And when they get to the store they usually get bought quickly, all the good ones get taken so all the sick looking ones stay behind I usually go at night when they just put them out so I get a good pick.

Oh, I thought they would be transported in bags and THEN put in the cups. IDK.
