No store can properly take care of fish. Why don't you try to get a job there and take care of them yourself!

Ha.... If I ever worked at a fish store I'd just end up taking bettas home after every shift!

Lol me too! If you really have a problem with the way the stores are treating them you should complain and threaten to report them and the problem is fixed almost instantly.

The thing is with WalMart, the person in charge of pets ends up getting stolen away for various other departments and duties because WalMart's cheap. They get stuck in Lawn and Garden, Housewares, emptying trucks, and all sorts of things. So they never really get to take proper care of the fish in a lot of stores.

my betta, riley, was from walmart. he's the crowntail in the picture. i didn't think he'd live very long since he was from walmart, but i'll have had him for six months on thursday. walmart shouldn't sell bettas if they aren't going to properly care for them!!!!! a cup of water as small as they sell the bettas in would need to be changed EVERY DAY. i highly doubt it gets changed twice a week! >:-[

My walmarts pretty good with bettas. Sure they are in the little cups, but that doesn't bother me at all as long as they are kept clean. They are also really good about only keeping 15 or so bettas at a time so it's more manageable.

I've always hated Walmart for that. And you know that the only people purchasing fish from there are probably idiots or kids that will own the fish for two weeks until it dies of starvation or disease. Just the other day, I was there and saw a 9 year old banging on the tanks just because he was bored.

I used to rescue fish from there, and even though my heart is in the right place when I would do that, I was still giving them my business. I boycott the Walmart fish area now
