I read an article today that estimates that 60% of fish from pet stores die within the first month of their purchase... this decision by WalMart definitely does not help the situation.

It's not just WalMart. I see horrifying "Betta Bowls" in Petco and Petsmart and most other pet stores. Those things are just impossible to get rid of.

The annoying part about Betta Bowls is there forced to sell them.

I actually really like the vases, as long as they do proper water changes, and have the room heated well. i think they are pretty, and the plant improves water quality...

I think they look really nice in libraries to be honest, i went to a chinese restaurant once and they had one, it looked fine, the water was clean the plant was clean... the fish was healthy. As long as people clean the bowls and feed the fish its alright. and the temp is kept stable...

i agree with you mistersmom. if you keep the vase in check and actuall do the right things for the betta, then there is no problem. They are actually benificial to your betta if he/she prefers the smaller space. but the vases themselves are not the problem! the instructions on the packaging are worthless! they encourage the harming of the betta, and people won't realize this untill the have a dead fish. we need to focus on at least changing the instructions on the packaging or maybe even education people. even if that means that we stand in walmart all day and hand out fliers! i believe that this will do the most good!

Honestly, i think some one should decide weekly or every other day to go to their local walmart and slip in a correct beta care sheet.

I agree... Maybe some one should slip correct betta care sheets in the bowls and vases at walamart once a week, even at Petco, and tape 'RE-CALLED FOR LACK OF INGENUITY' on the betta cube things... Or something like that... idk what ingenuity means but it sounded right. lol
