No not me.... our local Walmart has finally gotten rid of their fishtanks! YAAAAYYY
When we were walking around I even heard some of the employees saying they were happy about the fish being gone as well!

Hopefully alot of other Walmarts are doing the same thing. Getting rid of the fish they have and then tearing down those disease infested death traps so no other fish will ever have to be in them again!

I wonder if they are willing to sell their tanks and filters and other equipment if they do that near me?

Yayyyyyy!! ;D Shollia and Stradius, are they getting rid of the whole fish dept (with the supplies), or just the fish themselves?

I think they started eliminating live fish at least a year ago. I went to a WalMart in Tennessee that had no tanks and only a few supplies. I don't think any of the new ones being built will have live fish for sale.

Well we went to the Superpets here (which has been taking better care of their animals thank god).... to grab some medication for the tank.. and one of the employees started to talk to us about the Walmarts getting rid of the fish.

Well she said that she saved about a dozen of them b/c the idiot freaking people at the Walmart decided the best way to get rid of the fish was to just turn off everything and let the fish die.
Seriously....... **** >

She didn't seem to know too much about fish (considering she didn't think getting Mraracyn 2 was worth the $$)... but at least she had the heart to try to save some of the fish that that Walmart would've just let die.
I hope that more people went and rescued as many as they could as well.

She also told us that some of the Walmarts.. such as the one across town still have their fish b/c they still get alot of business. *shrugs*
Let's just hope they take better care of theirs than this one did.

I actually have been to Wal Mart tonight in my area and spoke to their resident fish person, who actually has some knowledge and does a fair job of keeping things in working order, and he said they had talked about removing the fish from that store. But they were still getting shipments of fish so he didn't know if they had changed their mind or not.
