Slurpee





Meet Slurpee! He is the newest member of the family. Every time I go to Walmart I check the cleanliness of the fish tanks. I suggest you all do the same. For the longest time they were so dirty:dead fish were stuck to the filter in every tank, and they all looked like they hadn't been cleaned in months. Finally, after talking to numerous employees, and a number of visits to the store- the problem got resolved. Now they're clean every time, and I bet they sell a lot more fish.
Anyway, Slurpee asked to go home with me today, so I took him. :)

Slurpee is adorable! Reminds me of my son's best friend's goldfish who lived to be 12 years old.....12! We had to fish-sit him once while they were gone and I prayed it would not die in our care, he died a few days after they got home. Moral of the story - fish are hearty little creatures when they are loved :)

What a good fish name! Slurpee :)
Walmart should be ashamed of themselves...

Walmart tanks are sick. They should not be selling pets. Good for you for making an imapct. Slurpee looks like a perky little feller. I'd like to get a little pet I think.

He is a cute fish...love the name.

Wal Mart are horrible animal caretakers. I don't think they should be allowed to sell pets.

Ha! What a great name for the fish. I feel the same way about Wal-Mart tanks. The ones in our area are all scummy and disappointing.

Barbara,
Thanks!!
It’s always a little nerve racking taking care of someone’s pet. lol I think fish may be the worst because they are so fragile. :)

Dawn,
I thought so. :) The name actually came from a song I’ve been listening to a lot lately. It seemed like a perfect name for him!

Alicia,
Yay!! :) Thanks for visiting! I definitely think you need a pet. Hmm, maybe a cockroach! lol

Shannon,
Hey! Yeah, I’ve often wished that there was something that could be done about them selling pets. It seems like they sell everything there these days.

Joann,
Hi! It’s sad it seems like that is the case everywhere. You would think at least one person per store cared a bit. I guess not. :(

Caron,
I know, it’s just crazy. They should leave the pet selling to the professionals.
