Walmart FIsh Cruelty

Walmart needs to stop selling bettas. The conditions are horrific, some barely have water, and they never get feed. We need this stopped soon, or thousands more will die. If you guys have a Facebook, please like our page to help us stop this. We have fourms, info, photos (coming soon) and othr stuff. Along with contact info to help us stop this.

Please help us stop!

My local Walmart has stopped selling Bettas, whether out of a new found sensitivity, all the bad press (from people who CARE) or because stocking $4 fish wasn't selling enough $30 aquariums and accesories I don't know but at least they've stopped. Poor fish....

Luckily our wal-marts, all three, stopped selling them about two years ago. I remember they use to have all their tanks freezing cold, not just the goldfish, tropicals too. they felt no more than 60 degrees Farenheit. It was so sad.

Petsmart is going downhill in my area, the last few times I've gone the bettas are floating in filth, found two dead, many listless. and one time they had sooo many that they were stacked 3 high. Aside from the threat of falling over if someone bumped the shelf, their only air hole was covered and their dirtyness was less noticable if they were buried...

At least I never bought fish from Walmart. Only once because my cousin wanted some goldfish. However one died from ich. The Betta fish are treated like crap at my Petsmart. Once i went in and the fish were lying in their cups dead. a bunch of fish were sick too. Angry i left and a few days later i went to my mom and pop pet store (They treat their bettas alot better) and bought me a healthy male.
