I'll change it again tonight just in case. I added a small barrel into his little tank and he's exploring it right now.

If you do contact them, make sure to say something about how, regardless of the fish's suffering, having such a filthy cup there is medically dangerous to their customers. They are exposing to customers to bacteria, parasites, and viruses by leaving a DYING fish in absolutely filthy, RANCID water. God forbid a child spilled that on themselves, they could have gotten sick. Their mother would have been soo mad if that had happened. Even though I only really care about the fish, walmart only cares about customers and customer service so mention how you were disgusted by the lack of time and care walmart takes to make sure their store is safe for people to shop it. Can you imagine if that fish had Tuberculosis, and someone which a compromised immune system spilled that water on them? They would have gotten tuberculosis (a deadly disease) and it would have been walmarts fault.

In my opinion, it is bad enough to leave a fish to die like that, but really? Really, Walmart? You are just going to leave a cup of rotting whoknowswhat in the middle of a shelf for a PAYING customer to find?

This is why I hate Walmart. I really hope you write a letter. Someone needs to make a facebook page/group boycotting Walmart until they treat their fish with care, or better yet NO FISH AT ALL!!

I think walmart has great fish item prices, but should seriously stop carrying fish. No one is even assigned to that department, so why do they have it??

At least at petsmart you can tell someone who can properly and professionally take care of it. They will dispose of dead fish if you ask, they change the fish water, etc.

C'mon...

Totally agree. I told Bryan that if we move to the city with a Walmart I'm going to apply for that position and send in photos of my bettas/bettas homes so hopefully I could be a better candidate for the job. I mean it's one Walmart but that would mean one Walmart that doesn't have dying fish. It's not going to hurt them to take like $20 out of THEIR money to buy supplies for the fish they're selling. People would buy more fish if they didn't show signs of disease on the shelf. ugh.

And it baffles me at how NOBODY would buy Squeaky just because he was in absolute filth. They threw like 20+ grains of food that looked as if they weren't even betta food at all. I'm praying that he'll come around and eat within the next few days. He isn't acting sick at all. His fins are all intact and everything. What the heck is wrong with people??

What's funny is walmart pays so much leas for those tanks and supplies...

Even as a part time job those fish could look SO much healthier. If they actually decorated/aquascapes the tanks people would be more mesmerized and think, "woe I want that in my home!" Rather eww.... then more people will want to buy tanks, decor, and the fish!
