I went to walmart on Saturday and decided to check out the bettas. They had put them on a huge shelf all spread out so people could see them clearly and the first one I spotted, right in front, was a big white male VT covered in a layer of white fuzzy stuff, dead. =[ I was very sad, he looked like he was very pretty at one point.
Than I found two purple CTs. I wanted one very badly bbutt currently no where to put them. =[

We have a relatively new PetSmart in my area, and the bettas seem to be in better shape then our local PetCo, which has been in business for a while. When I was in PetCo and looking at their aquariums, I noticed a poor little soul in his cup, who had obviously died. I told the one clerk about it, and all he had to say was, "Yeah, it looks like it's dead." What a moron! Obviously, just an idiot who collects a paycheck, but doesn't give a hoot about what he's doing. Our Walmart, which is a super center does not carry any fish. The older store when it was open, did. Some people are in the wrong business. That's for sure!

She worte a letter to them by email and they still have not replyed. Its just sad how they care for the fish. One of the people on hear said they saw an emploey take a fish out and put it in his pocet to feed to his dog! The best place I've been for betta fish was pet land there was only one fish dead and when we told an eploey the said that they ushly didn't have dead ones. I wasin't shure if i should beleave them or not, but when i looked at the other fish they all looked nice and helthy! no diseses at all! And the employes seamed to care about them to! Finaly a place that cares about the fish.
LOPPY656 U NEED A FEMALE TO HAVE BABIES, (LOL), I JUST READ UR TWO MALES. I JUST HAD FRY HATCH THIS MORN. IT'S KINDA DIFFICULT WHEN THEY HATCH ON YOUR PART. PLEASE RESEARCH ALL U CAN. IT'S ALOT OF WORK. I'VE BEEN DOING IT ABOUT 6 YEARS AND I'M STILL LEARNING.

Should have stopped in the arts and crafts section, right beside there is a pile of glass vases and bowls. For like $10 and they are really big! Also there is the glass marbles you can decorate the tank with.
