Don't you hate it?

I went to the Pet Store today and I was looking at the fish as usual. I saw some gorgeous Betta there. I know they got new ones in, because I was just there a few days ago and there are more now.
I want to take them all home! I saw some with fin rot and one had SBD.

There was one small female that I fell for. She had a white body and red/purple fins. Aw, I just wanted to take her home right then and there. If only I had the space!

Yep, I think I am just going to have to quit looking at the bettas.
My petsmart is not so bad, for the most part the fish look health and the water clean.
My Walmart is a different story. I ended up buying three female bettas from there last week. They each had about 10 large pellets in each of their cups. I could not stand to see the bettas living in those conditions.
I threw them in my 65 gal with the female I already had. They have been doing a lot of bickering, but they must enjoy it because they all choice to hang out on the same side of the tank.

Ohh god I hate the walmart conditions, thy have theirs in a dark rack over the sink, they clearly dont change the water ever. Half the time Im tempted to just turn on the sink and change their water but I dont know if I can go too jail for that.

Fortunately, our Walmart doesn't have a fish section. I would hate to see the Bettas in that condition.

My Walmart doesn't either. But every time I go in there to look at fish stuff, the decorations are all busted up! Like the bridges and the little ceramic signs that say No Fishing and I prefer to live alone.I'm sure they weren't shipped to the store that way. Some smart alecks are probably doing it. I'm going to customer service next time I'm in there, to let them know.

There were at LEAST TWO fish per tank that was dead, and at least half of those are covered in fungus...

I almost cried over a year ago, when I saw the fish in Walmart, and I refuse to support such a business! So I don't.
Last time I was in a pet store, I really wanted to take a fish home, they were all so pretty.

I hear so many bad things about Walmart's fish department. I don't know why they won't do something about it.

Because Walmart is an evil corporation in itself.
