I found this thread last night and had no intentions on even buying a fish from walmart today, but meet Wally(haha, so original)
He was bought from walmart for a dollar(I told the manager I wanted him for free. But he said no)
I went to a new walmart, taking my cousin shopping.
I of course had to go look at the betta's. This was the worst I have EVER seen. There had to be atleast 30 betta fish there. All stacked up on one little shelf. I mean how the flip am I suppose to see the back ones? Are they just back there to die?
I asked to speak to the manager and e just said sorry and took the fish.
My intentions where not to buy it, I already have 22 betta fish. I looked around more and I decided I wanted to buy it.
I went back and found the manager and he took me to the back where he had put him. This poor little guy wasn't the only one. There where six others back there in a ark cabinet, just left to die. I looked at the man and asked him if he seriously just told me they change the water weekly, yet there are six other fish back here that people have returned or they are sick? I wanted them all, but Wally's cup was the worst. I can't rescue them all, you know. :/ But he is fine now, in a new tank, hopefully he makes it.
He is actually really really small, still a baby. Fin rot has just ate off his tail, its awful.
