One of the reasons I had to have my betta was because he was so feisty and precious in his cup at the pet store. My Wal-Mart stopped carrying fish several years ago, then carried them again for a short time, but no bettas at that point. I hated to leave any of the bettas in their cups at the pet store, but Swish...I guess I just couldn't leave without him! I actually left, very upset, but then I went back and bought him. I'm glad my Wal-Mart doesn't carry fish anymore, but I don't really know of any other stores with fish in my county...

Oh my gosh, that video about walmart made me cry! That is cruelty!!! I despise walmart. They are all about the bottom line, not what's best for the environment or living beings!

My Walmart is also bad with their fish. They carry different types of Catfish, Goldfish, Feeder Fish, Algae Eaters and the male Betta's. I may have missed one or two types. All the tanks and cups with the Betta's are dirty, many of them are ill or dead. Its very noticeable. They just have no clue.

Your also right that some pets stores can be just as bad if not worse. Theres one by me where the fish tanks are clean, but extremely overloaded. The "closet room" for the mice,ferrets,gerbils,bunny's etc is extremely hot! The reptiles looked underweight/issues with shedding. My sister and I called animal control, they checked them, but they are still open. :( I refuse to go back there!

Those videos made me cry. :(

i really want to go rescue at least one more betta. when i bought Swish there was a tiny thing behind him that i'm pretty sure was either dead or couldn't move. i felt so bad. I couldn't leave Swish, but I also couldn't look at all the other beauties who were trying so hard for my attention...;-;
