Wal Mart Not Selling Aquarium Fish

  • 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.

  • Man, it's wild that Walmart ditched the fish! I totally get it though—who wants to see Nemo floating upside down while grabbing cereal? Not a good look. Plus, selling fish is tricky business—one bad tank and you've got a PR nightmare. Better leave the finned friends to the pros at Petco and Petsmart, ya know?
