Urgh... I know ): I've been to pet stores that are just as bad! There's this one in the same mall that I work in, and none of the employees know much about the animals they sell, even the shop owner.

They were keeping like 6 female bettas in a tiny fish bowl. ): The bigger ones were picking on the smaller ones... I managed to save one and I'm going to give her a big awesome tank of freedom.

I feel bad for supporting such careless places, even if I like saving the life that's there. I wish I knew of some decent aquarium stores that are really accessible to me... The ones I know are so far and in weird places that I'd need a car to reach.

But yeah, it's sad how people belittle life in all its forms.

I do that too. Sometimes that's all we can do.

And when some people look at them they throw them around and stress them out...thus killing them more.

My Walmart pushes a lot of bettas to the back (ones that are alive) so me and my best friend (who you wouldn't think would care so much about animals but he does) stack the cups in twos so people can buy one and have a chance to their colors and find one they like.

Uhhh... why are you guys going to Walmart in the first place? Bad fish, bad items, cheap everything.

To the original poster - I don't want to sound mean, or be the bearer of bad news, but that condition will never change. No matter what. I've seen too many of these complaints, and that is all they are. To the employees, we are just another customer to suck into buying stuff.

And guys... stop "saving" these bettas. If you want to help the cause, you wont buy them. They are looking for sales. Sales of bettas will make them sell and then purchase more bettas.

Me and my friend are always in walmart (IDK why, he's weird). But I can't help but look at the fish.

I've only bought three fish from walmart: 2 mustard gas ones and one wild looking female (died of dropsy).

If we stop "saving" them, hundreds of fish will die. Sure hundreds of fish die there all the time but giving one or two a good home is better than letting them die.
