The ONE place, that beats the whole "strength in numbers" is the multi-billion dollar industry, Walmart. If you've ever seen documentations of just Walmart building new places in small towns, destroying a bustling town to a ghost town, you'd know it is in vain.

My store, used to carry fish. HEALTHY fish! Because the petsection-manager, took care of them, and made sure her employees did their job. If they didn't, they were transfered. However it was the shipping company to make them lose money - dead fish arrives - no sales. :/

Although I work there. So darn rights I have a complaint. or two. or five. Only perk: work there for a year get a bonus. work there for 2 or more years, double that bonus

Yeah, he didn't make it. The replacement they gave (also a poor sick baby) currently is residing in my hospital tank with ich medicine. He's doing much better already.

Yea Sena, I feel like Wal marts just drain the life away from towns.. Small business struggle, and it really removes a lot of uniqueness in a place.
I hate Wal mart with a passion.
But they have such great deals!
^My mentality.

I'm sorry that he died D:
Hopefully this new one will get better soon!

Aw I'm sorry. And I left a nice little complaint on their website and they gave me a nice 5 gallon starter tank with everything! I also saw this sick baby with horrible tail rot so I opened a bottle of melafix and gave it to him it was all they had that could potentially help him

Personally, I'm getting sick of these types of threads. The amount of people who don't know their information, and buy from these stores, out weighs the amount of people who do. It's a rather slim chance that anything will change.

Like others have said the best thing to do is to not support these stores. Support an LFS or buy supplies online and fish from breeders.

Once again I got him for free. So I didn't put any money towards him. And if your sick of these threads just ignore them. Were not dumb we know buying them will support them. But he was suffering so I took him.

There's a lot of dumb people out there that will keep buying them but people near me don't know Walmart has fish. The employees didn't even know.

I wasn't directing anything at you. I was directing at threads like this in general.
