Walmart

I went to Walmart today, and they had NO bettas. They always had bettas, so this shocked me. Are they going to stop selling bettas? Has anyone seen bettas at a Walmart?

Some walmarts don't sell bettas and some do. They could possibly be out of stock, this happens very often.

Yeah. I haven't seen them out before. And they had like half of their flowers and plants dead.

It took a while for the WM to phase out fish selling here. It started with less and less fish in the tanks and then they turned off all the lights. All the tanks and nets an stuff was still there for a while then suddenly there were dog beds and kennels there!! It was great. I hope your WM stops selling live fish.

Back in January I rescued a female betta from there, but recently when I go back to the fish isle I haven't seen any there. I actually asked the manager if they weren't going to sell bettas anymore and he said no they weren't going to sell them because they were to much trouble shipping them in or something like that. I'm actually really happy about that because they treated their fish badly anyway.

If you see tanks in operation, they still carry bettas. They are either out or in some extremely rare instance, the manager has had them taken off the store's trait (items they sell).

A number of stores are remodeling to expand foods and the live fish are often one of the key categories to go, so that's a possibility, too.

Hopefully you're never there to see the shipment of bettas come in...

The Walmart I went to had tanks still running, with fish in them. No lights on though, it was kind of hard to see the fish..
