I Have good news.

ok so it was my 18th birthday on monday and my mom brought me a tank. She was gonna take me to petco to buy the fish, but i’d rather save the fish at wallmart. I walked in to the fish department and i was totally shocked at what i saw! :o

Wall-Mart has brand new fish tanks. they did not over populate the fish and there were no dead fish in the tank.

i was suprised at how well the employee knew about fish. i brought some tropical fish guppies and i dont remember the other ones.

but i think wall-mart is slowly getting better at this.


One quick question do my guppies need a heater, they told me no but im worried

but my fish are fine, :]

So... what do you think? Please leave me a comment or give me a


  • thea: Yes your guppies need a filter, a heater and really prefer to be in groups — they feel more secure. They do well in well planted tanks and reproduce like bunnies, so be sure you have 3:1 female to male ratio.
    Best to posts this in the forums. You will get the attention of others who have more experience of raising guppies–blogs are less read.
  • Savantskie: This is NOT indicative of ANY Wal-Mart. As of the end of last year, Wal-Mart has decided to phase out any fish selling area that does not make a profit. Period. They loose WAY too much money because they don’t have the proper staffing, and do not either know enough, or want to expend that much effort in keeping a stock long enough to sell.
    I know this because I’m a former Wal-Mart employee, and still get emails from the home offices regarding company changes and such. I’m assuming they just either forgot me, or didn’t pay attention that I was fired.
    The only stores that will be keeping the live fish area are the ones that make profit over a significant margin. Which I’m going to assume is over 65 percent of the product that comes in.
