one of my rescue boys, Hercules, was one of the bettas placed in cup with another betta, first time I ever saw it and both were alive, when I went to purchase him, the guy at the registar checked... then leaned over and said that he had seen this happening a lot.... he only charged me for one... he happened to be a fish lover and new chances were that Herc would die....
My walmart is getting better, the water is blue, but the fish were mostly healthy though there was one dead one that had this fuzz all over him. It used to be a lot worse back in 2010 all the fish I bought from there had dirty water. Sometime last year it must have changed after I stopped getting fish. The lady who checked out Arashi would have charged for both. She loved seeing them flare up, and obviously didn't care for the fishes well being. She asked if I was going to put him in a small bowl near another fish. I told her I was putting him in a divided ten gallon! She didn't think that was any fun.

They really do. It's a shame that they were not taken better care of too. You would think walmart would do that so they could make a little more money.
