I think that when people attach the pamplets we can print some out and take them to local petstores.

Oh this is awwsum, we just have to get the information to the right people, and places that need it most..

The walmarts in our area (there are 3 within 12 miles of my house) all keep their bettas not only in those tiny betta cups... but they keep them in a blue colored water that almost never gets deeper than 2 inches.

There is a website called Change.org where people make petitions, and sometimes when they get enough signatures the company being pressured actually takes action to correct something.

Does anyone know of something like this? I know it's only 1 retail chain, but walmart is the biggest retail giant in the world, and I've met a lot of people who ignorantly think bettas are fine to keep in tiny bowls because walmart sells them in amazingly small amounts of water.

I feel bad that my betta only has a 2 gallon tank, and when I can afford it I'm going to get him a 5 galon tank instead. If anyone knows of such a petition, or makes one, please let us know.

Edit: didn't see the link before, I will check it out for sure

There is a "Bettafish Awareness Day"on Change.org and a Petition that is already in the works for "Walmart to stop selling tanks under 1 gallon to betta fish" on Change.org, and there is another one called "Care2Cause" and I have sent them an e-mail with my concerns regarding Walmart, and Petco.
