Honestly, I'm never going into another walmart and I REFUSE to let my friends and family shop there and support them. It's nothing but a hellhole for hicks to go spread their filth together and live in their ignorance.
I went in today because I wanted some more brine shrimp eggs to make a second colony and once I had seen them selling them years ago and hoped they still would. So I went there and naturally had to take a look at the betta. WELL they had some beautiful females, unfortunately two were dead and one was on her way out, a lovely green. All CT females. Next to the dead one was a very ill blue and green with clamped fins and very pale. The other living female also had clamped fins and was almost pure white with what little red was left on her body just hardly showing. It was SO cold back there I was amazed they were not dead. All the males had clamped fins and were either laying on the bottom or floating already dead at the top. Of the six males only two looked to be alive, one was on his way out.
I felt so bad for the little girl and instantly I decided I had to take her hope and give her hope. Sadly she passed on the car ride home. I had asked if they cleaned the cups and they said they cleaned them every other day. I tested the ammonia lvl's in the cup from my dead girl and after sitting a short time it's already colored to 4.0 and hasn't even sat the full waiting period yet. I'm thinking ammonia level is going to be close to an 8.0, looking at it now the color is a lot darker. I'm returning the female tomorrow and am very heartbroken I couldn't save her. MAN Walmart needs to be shut down, I am sick of them supporting animal abuse. Stupid rednecks.
