Since i have been checking on the walmart bettas care, i have noticed a poor little no too pretty betta sit there after the others are gone and new ones come. I don't think anyone is going to buy him ever. I now have a 1 gallon empty with a heater avaiable.
Should i go get him before he sits forever and then just dies just cuz he is not flashy? He is whitish vt. He is still moving around some, but i'm afraid with the kind of care or non care he will eventually just die.
I would try to get him for half off, make up any excuse. If the manager knows he's been there for weeks, say it's better you buy him for half price then no one ever buys him and he just dies and they've lost profit. Whatever you need to say.
Walmart supposedly gets credit for dead fish, so the whole "your supporting the cycle" theory is invalid.
It's awsome that you got him for free, most people don't seem to have any luck with walmart managers actually listening.
I like to get the sickies, and have seen some pretty awsome transformations. One went from being olive colored and stress striped with a cut off tail fin into one of the prettiest black females with royal blue rays and her fin grew back.
