Thats so weird! A lady that works at my wal-mart told me the same thing. I just looked at her like she was crazy (cause wal-mart kills their fish themselfs). Now I'm kinda re-thinking what she said.

This is a myth... I worked at walmart for a long time and never once did i hear anything about that, nor did i ever get a fish returned that wasnt clearly dead of an illness. :/

I bet the fish are dying if they are passed over a "medal" detector. My mom's beta is from Wal Mart. He is doing fine for the last six months.

I'm sorry but I would follow Nichi's law if I were you when it comes to WalMart employee's. "Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see." Because remember: They put them in the crappy cups and never change the water unless bugged about it. They're perfectly capable of lying too.

I'm just saying take it with a grain of salt. People can be strange.

Well, i knew that many would doubt and believe, but again (i dont know if its true or not. I also bought fish from wal-mart and they still are living today, but it might be true. You never know. So it would be your choose weather or nor you choose to believe it or not.

This is very interesting because I just bought a fish home from Walmart the other day, and the lady at the door asked me if they told me about this fish and the metal detector when I went through the checkout. I said no, and she proceeded to tell me the exact thing. So I carried him over the detector. Then when I got to the car, I got thinking about this. Don't all pet stores such as Petco and Petsmart have the same detectors? None of my fish have died from coming out of those stores. So I am not sure that I believe this to be true.
