!very important fact thats mandatory!

Do you know how you buy walmart fish and most of the time they die in about 2-3 days later?

Well i was in walmart a while back and i remember the fish catcher telling me NEVER to pass the fish through the medal detector because the medal detector's rays pass through the fish and will eventually
kill the fish in 2-3 days.

So everyone needs to know that when you buy a fish from walmart,
!CARRY THE FISH OVER THE MEDAL DETECTORS!

This is the reason that people's fish are dying so fast.

That's interesting. Could be true but I bought two goldfish from walmart and both lived the average lifespan.....Still interesting though.

I will definitely take that seriously if I ever do buy a betta from Walmart although I never will, but I still think that the real reason bettas sold at Walmart are dying is because they don't take care of them, they don't care enough to change the toilet water in the cup, and they're using this as an excuse to avoid any responsibility. They're saying, "it's not our fault, it's the metal detector."

My two local Walmart's both stopped selling fish....not sure why...so I don't really have to worry. But what would harm the fish in the rays? I mean, they don't harm us..

I got Akira and Maka from WalMart. Maka died because of dropsy and that was nearly a month after purchesing her. Akira's still doing good.

My local Petsmart has the metal detector too and I walked through it with Kai and he's still alive hell he's thriving.

Well im sure that it doesnt happen everytime someone took thier fish through the medal detector. Either way if it is true or false, i would still do it to stay on the safe side.

Not sure if this is totally legit... I bought Squeaky and Wartooth from Walmart and they're still alive. I've had Wartooth for about 6 months and Squeaks for about 4 days. lol
