They are quite territorial and would kill each other and most other fish before anyone had a chance to buy them.freshpuffer said:Well the bettas can be put in a community tank and the Walmart fish.. we need to get Walmart to stop selling fish its horrible
If they get somebody who actually cares for fish and will take care of them then I'm fine with thatscotty b said:
My local PetLand has clean tanks. Never seen a dead fish, and the only crowded ones are their feeder comet tank which I guess is expected :/ Their betta cups are sad, but usually clean looking. When I bought my newest boy there he and one other had really bad water, but they were the exception. I honestly think they just got missed by accident.trijohn said:I get your point about walmart. But in all the stores I've been to that sell fish, there are always problems with overcrowding and dead fish in the tank. It would be great if store tanks were stocked reasonably, but the problems are pretty common everywhere from Petco and Walmart to the local and specialty fish stores.
The best maintained tanks I've seen are saltwater where the fish are very expensive.
