i would have said something and probably got kicked out, i have a bad temper especially when it comes to creatures have no say in how they are treated. if you guys decide to do something about it im right there. ive already starte a pamphlet kinda thing that tells about fish care and iwas gonna give them to pet stores to hand out and hand them out myself. but yea i probably wouldve scooped the betta out myself and told the guy to f"ck off

Lets see...

Try to save a fish or two. In your mind, lets say the rest die. Then they order more because they have sales from the fish.
No one buys any of the fish, which means no sales, which means no more Walmart ordering.

There have been plenty of threads like this over the years... None do anything big. Just a bunch of people who think saving a single fish will change something.

Oh, hey, lets read the wonderful stickies our site has (that no one acknowledges):

I'm currently gonna take my Betta First Aid kit to my local Walmart (the only place here that has issues) and treat their tanks/cups. Also I'm gonna make care sheets and write "CLEAN ME" on the cups.

I think you guys should do the same...it might help.

I'm glad that the walmarts in my area actually don't have aquarium live stock sections anymore. They just got rid of them for some reason or another.

But thank goodness, less fish will suffer in the hands of idiots.

I just finished my care sheet :)

I only have one copy but I'm gonna print more before I go over there.

How many do you think I should print?

Hey I'm trying to educate people on proper betta care. I buy most of my bettas form the PetCos here (they take REAL good care of their bettas).

And you still avoided the sticky I mentioned? Again, no surprise.

I'll leave your guys' little world for a little bit and come back when some sanity is reached... but it wont.
