another walmart rant

went to the local walmart for a few things. don't usually stop by the fish, but for some reason had to urge too. they had about 5-6 bettas in little cups. saw that one of the bettas looked horrible. like he had almost been eaten. his fins were horribly torn. i called an employee over, and after letting them know how unacceptable this was and how outraged i was, they gave him to me for free.

sorry for the bad picture. i hope i can help him recover.

That is too bad. If he is kept isolated in his cup how did that chunk of fin get lost?

A poorly kept cup probably led to fin rot.

Poor fish :( I've never actually been to Walmart, but I've heard a lot of bad stuff about their fish :(

he's very friendly and will jump for a pellet on my finger. he seems to swim around just fine and is already starting a bubble nest.
