Wal-Mart to cut pet fish sales | Practical Fishkeeping magazine

Wal-Mart would not confirm to Reuters exactly how many stores would be affected, but said that it was certainly not abandoning the aquarium business.
Really?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

get lost wal-mart, target is way better. I dont like anything in wal-mart, targets prices are actually cheaper where i live and is much much much more organized.

But good, they are finally slowing down

Well that is good news. The fish at Wal-Mart do not look healthy, and the employees there know even less than the employees at PetSmart!! (and I used to be one of them, at PetSmart).

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!

Haha non aggressive? Thats too funny. But thats good news! Although I like the good price on fish bowls (until I get my new tank, bettas have to be in bowls, then they will turn into 'quarantine' bowls for new bettas) I found so many dead bettas =( and their fish look terrible!

well i wouldnt order enough fish to make the expense of shipping worth it. Plus i have had horrid troubles with both fedex and usps lately claiming to not be able to find my house. I wouldnt wanna risk that when lives are at stake.
