Angry Wal Mart is horrible!

I visited the fish section at my local Wal Mart today, looking for some decorations for Hedwig, and I decided to take a quick look at the betta fish.

Every single one was sick.
There was only ten of them, and all of them had fin rot, one had dropsy, and one of them.. I almost cried. He was so pretty, but he was covered with this white stuff all over, he had fin rot, and seemed to be moments from death.

So when an employee finally came over, I showed her the fish.
The one fish that had that icky stuff all over him, she just shoved the container under a sink.
And she just ignored all the rest.

There was a whole entire shelf of medications right next to them!
And how hard is it to change their water!?

I'm just so mad!

I feel soooo sorry for those bettas at Wal*Mart! 2 of mine are Wal*Mart rescues. Another person on the forum asked: "Why do you call them "rescues"?" That's why!!!! They aren't taken care of properly. Poor fish.

I'm so glad I saved Sequin and Annabelle from such a horrible fate. They are my Wal*Mart babies, and the feistiest fish I have. I think I'm going to get my next fish from Wal*Mart. Sure, it will be replaced by another fish, but so would a dead one! I'd rather save them from death than make a "statement" that really won't do much.

Exactly! Akira was my first WalMart rescue and Maka was my second. This is why we call them WalMart rescues because no one takes care of them until we step in.

Hell a walmart employee pretty much hates my guts.

One of the Wal*Marts near me completely stopped selling fish because they were remodeling themselves into a Super Wal*Mart. That made me so happy. They hadn't had Bettas since Christmas, which was awesome.
