I had been noticing there being fewer and fewer fish in the tanks of my local Walmart. Today the tanks were completely empty and a sign said they were not able to sell fish at this time. If this becomes permanent, the only place to buy fish in this town will be PetSmart.
I have never bought a fish from Walmart. The only live critter I bought there was a Black Mystery snail and it did very well. Everything else has come from PetSmart. Well, everything is 4 fish and 5 snails. Everything has thrived except for a purple GLO Danio that only lived 10 days. He was returned with no problem. Anything alive that they sell is guaranteed for 14 days. The knowledge level is I would say, below average except for one kid who has 5 tanks at home. He knows more than the store manager. She only really knows the furries.
