That is DISGUSTING!

What was the manager's lame excuse?

My hat is definitely off to you, way to go! It finally dawned on me that the only reason Wallyworld even offers the Bettas is so they can sell the accesories- buy $5 worth of fish and then be obliged to buy $30-$80 worth of aquatic accesories- what a sad, cynical approach to merchandising, but it does account for why they don't care for the fish. It just doesn't matter as long as something wiggles enough to prompt the additional buying. Heartless to say the least.

I don't think I've seen anything that bad at any pet store (or Walmart).

There was no excuse. The sad part is that was the SECOND time going into that store. I was there 3 days earlier and saw the same thing. The first time the manager said that they just got the shipment in and this happens Everytime they get a shipment because the fish don't survive the transport. The second time the manager didn't even want to come see what I was complaining about and ran off as soon as he could. I have since returned and it is clean... For now. Next time I see this I'm just going to call the police for animal cruelty.
