Thanks guys! He was the last one. He wasn't even on the shelf where he was supposed to be. Just shoved aside with nobody wanting him waiting to die. He's so happy now. I know a lot of people think it's stupid to spend what little money you have left on a fish that will probably die in the long run but he didn't appear sick and if he dies, at least he'll die in a good home (because that disease they get is just awful!). So I've got him in some totally clean water and he's so excited!

I know I've said this several times earlier but I honestly cannot get over the smell that came from that cup. It horrifies me. It looked like someone felt sorry for the little guy and poured him some food in there (just trying to help but they didn't know the amounts, etc). It was all nasty in the cup and just soupy. Not watery. Soupy. I'll get better photos soon.

I wish you would have just scooped him out of the nasty water and taken the cup back to Walmart and left it where you found it so someone there would have to deal with it.

It is probably illegal, but it should be illegal to treat any animal like he was!

Couldn't agree with you more. I wasn't planning on buying anymore fish but that just cut the cake for me. I begged my boyfriend to buy him for me and he did. Thankfully!

Good for that little betta you got him!

And, just for the heck of it, since you got a great photo of what crappy water he was in, you should scan your receipt from buying him (or take a photo of the receipt), and send that photo & your receipt to Walmart's Corporate office, or wherever.... and complain on what terrible conditions their fish are kept in and tell them you're sending that same photo to the ASPCA to report them.

Good luck with your new fishie and I'm sure he'll be happy!

That's a great idea actually. I think I'll go do that now. He's happy as can be. Still not eating but I'm sure he will come around because he was way overfed in that tiny little nasty cup. :(

Yeah, I think he is. All of my bettas are except for Waffle and he looks like somewhere in his family line he may have had a crown tailed betta. The bottom of his fins look a lot different from my other VT's.

Oh yeah! I named him Squeaky. :D

If he was living in that, I would change his water again soon. It's probably gotten inside him, so the ammonia will build up fast again.
