Today, my family and I went into Walmart today to buy groceries. Of course, with my Walmart taking better care of their bettas than PetSmart, I went to go look at the bettas. The person who works with fish had just finished cleaning the Betta cups. The worker had told me that a Betta had been there for around two months. He was a gorgeous turquoise male with red ventrals. He said if I got him, he would give me a paper that he would write by himself, saying to lower the price from $3.98 to $1.98. He was very healthy, and I couldn't pass this guys offer up. I ended up getting him. He got the name of Zazu, you know, the bird from The Lion King 1 and 2.
I got him home and put him in a gallon sized Critter Keeper (as Walmart calls them). He will get daily changes until I get him, and every one of my other bettas 2.5 gallon tanks as Christmas presents(yes, they will get Christmas presents. My horses even do). Surprised he made the trip home. 103° all day long. Didn't drop or rise at all starting at 10 o'clock. Well, it looked like he decided to bite a piece of his tail off from the middle of his tail.
He doesn't have any decor but gravel right now, but tomorrow I am hoping to get either AQ Sealant or a silk plant for him. If I can't, I will use a coffee mug if someone can say what to do with it to make it safe for him.
I am starting this journal because I want to keep track of his progress, as people say Walmart's take horrible care of bettas. Only one takes horrible care down where I live, but none in the next city 15 or so milles from here.
Where can you get craft mesh (I think that is what is called) from? I never see it at Walmart.
I have no pictures at the time. He's camera shy right now.
