OMG! WalMart called me!

I recently sent an email to Walmart asking them to not sell tiny tanks net to betta fish because beginners usually go to Walmart and trust them, especially since the .3 gallon tanks say "ideal for betta fish".

Guess who just got a call that said that they would tell the manufacturer?!

I doubt that anything big will come of this, but at least something is being done! I'm so proud of myself. :D

These pics are really what sparked all this. I joined WalMart's website, then emailed them. On the product pages, people can ask questions, and a lot of people were asking questions about cleaning/feeding and such, and I linked them to this site and dismissed crappy answers. If one fish has a mildly happier life because of what I did, I'm happy.

Guys, one person can do a lot, but multiple people multiply what that one person can do! Please email WalMart! They do ask for a phone number, but they don't text you any craziness or anything. Someone local called me, so my WalMart might be a little better, but what about yours?
