I see what you're saying but its a futile effort. Even if every die hard aquarist stopped purchasing bettas from those conditions wal mart wouldn't care at all. The bettas are a miniscule cost to them and the overwhelming majority of people buying fish from there are uninformed parents buying for kids.
