And then, yesterday, I went in for a heater.. and I saw this guy pretty much shaking this poor betta in its two inches of water. He then proceeded to flick the cup with his finger as hard as he could. I'm standing there, freaking out.. and he puts it down for a second, and then I swoop in and grab him. Poor guy.. he's been hiding under his leaves ever since I got him home.

People are jerks :I
and Walmart.. is a terrible place for bettas.
you should have gone up to him, shook him as hard as you could, flick his forehead as hard as you could and just walk away.

13 of my 18 fish came from Walmart. Why? Simple. The nearest city is over 400 miles south of here. Its either walmart/petco or nothing.

OMG, That is so horrible, I thought that Walmart didn't sell fish anymore? well least the ones where I live don't sell fish there anymore. that is just terrible. :( Walmart doesn't care about their animals "Fish" nor do they care about their employees such a terrible place to get fish. their employees are also under trained and don't know much of anything when you ask questions. "this is why they shouldn't be selling fish. no one even cares about checking on them" they can't even answer about products that their store sells. "so bad"

LOL
that would have been priceless!



Walmart is unfortunately the better option compared to our LFS.. we don't have a Petsmart/Petco in our local area. I usually have to drive an hour to Petsmart to get my conditioner every week.

So sad!!

I'm so happy that none of the walmarts around me (there are at least 5 in a 40 mile radius) sell fish anymore. They used to, the last one stopped a couple months ago. So I do think walmarts are slowly getting rid of their fish sections.

my walmart takes awful care of their fish. last time i was there, there were at least twenty dead goldfish sitting in a corner of a tank. the bettas are actually pretty well take care of, but very tiny :( but thankfully people in my tow seem to be always buying bettas, so they don't stay there for long :)
