Walmart, those clever marketing tactics of theirs.....well they cost me $20 the other day. Kate and I were picking up some items we needed and right smack in the center aisle there was a big display full of betta fish so Kate and I stopped to admire the fishies. I picked up a pretty red and purple fish so Kate could see him up close and she said "I can have that sishy?" (her poor Fs still sound like S) and who can resist that? So I said sure! I then picked out the water drops we'd need for the tank and some food, and I was just going to use a jar we have at home but wouldn't you know that the clever marketing people had placed some cool tank options on the display and a complete set up with little plastic trees and everything was only $8? The best part of the $8 tank is that it held not only one betta but had a partition for TWO fish in one tank! (They fight, so you can't house bettas together.) Well what a deal....so we picked out a pretty blue fishy to go with our red and purple one.
