Wal Mart Not Selling Aquarium Fish

  • Well, this is probably old news. It seems like they don't sell fish no more and haven't for years. Well, when I was a kid they had them, though. Why did they stop?

  • I think that they stopped selling the fish due to them not being that cost-effective, getting a bunch of bad press when it comes to the conditions that they were kept in (many employees cared less, so they would be covered in ich, half dead, or even fully dead). I also think that this was a way for them to try to get into the world of Petco/Petsmart (as they already sell the equipment, food, etc. for a variety of animals including fish or turtles) since it seems like a very profitable business if you look at the balance sheets of those two major companies.
