Angry Walmart = Evil

Just the other day I was going to Walmart to pick up some tank decor and when I stopped to take a look at the Bettas one of them was DEAD! I mean so dead that it looks like he was dead for at least 3 days. He was even decomposing! So what does that say about the employees of Walmart.. It says they they probably either didn't care they had a fish or they haven't fed the fish or even glanced at them at all... I believe it was both.. But that is horrible.. He was such a beautiful Betta. I am never shopping at Walmart for pet supplies ever again!

Yup! That's the condition you see bettas at most stores unfortunately.
Even Petco which brings beautiful bettas over here will restock their betta wall without even looking to see if they need to throw away any dead ones.
Whenever I find dead bettas at stores, I move them to the front of the shelf since I can never find an employee.

At my local petco I reported to an employee about four dead Bettas. One of my local Walmart stopped carrying fish, and another has an older man who takes care of the fish, but on his days off the tanks go back to being awful.

I'm going on a rescue mission to Wal-Mart tonight, TINY red CT that I fell in love with a few days ago. Hoping he's still there... and alive... COMING WITH ME. like I said in a previous thread, HE'S MINE. At least I hope so. I have yet to see any dead bettas at our south lincoln wal-mart, but i've seen some very sick ones, as well as other species floating dead in their tanks.
