I've only ever been to that fish place once and I wasn't terribly impressed with them. The petco or petsmart in altoona is my favorite as of yet. I would LOVE to open a pet store in my area. We are sorely lacking in good stores. When I move to Indiana in the fall I hope to get a job in the petco or petsmart they're opening

I just got back from my local Wal-Mart. Someone had dumped two males in the same cup! I ended up getting a new cup and filling it with water and pouring one of them into it.

I wish I had space for more of them. Seeing those fish tugs at my heart.

I would have changed this one's water if there were any open water conditioner lying around the space, but there wasn't. :(

Yeah, there was no conditioner at all. I guess they don't use any? I felt bad for putting him in plain tap water, but I figured it was still a better alternative to being with the other one.

Soundwave that exactly what happened the other day, the male I needed up buying was terribly torn up and I didn't think he'd make it home. I couldn't handle leaving him there like that. I ended up separating them with my hand in the cup as there were no other cups around. Unfortunately he only lasted about 2 hours once home. wish I could add pictures from my camera. :(

Tilli, did they make you buy him? I just cannot bear to buy them and encourage that behavior. :(

No Ill buy them if I see an unhealthy looking one because I'd rather buy one and maybe save it than know for a fact it's going to die a long painful death of neglect. A few I've managed to save and they are incredible characters and some I've lost. Some never fully heal and are always little "special" cases but that's ok with me because I love them anyway. Almost bought a blind boy today from petco, a beautiful EE but apparently an employee overheard my plan to get a manager to discount him the way some of them do and took him off the shelf when I walked away. I was so irritated so I ended up buying a little bitty baby with fin rot.

As far as I know, giving away fish is against Walmart store policy. They rather have them die then mark them down or let them go for free.

I am a bit of a bleeding heart, I admit. I know I can't turn down a fish in such horrid conditions.
