Well, I use to live in Chicago but I moved, and I'm in the city with the Walmart head quarters so I'm assuming they would for sure have them here! but they don't lol

This is a sad topic. I hate going to walmart just because of the condition of the fish. I hate to say that I went there yesterday to buy a little volcano for one of my tanks. I went to petsmart and petco first, but they are so expensive. I always look at the fish at walmart, and they always have ich. There is so much that I have to complain about when it comes to the condition of the fish kept in these three stores. Unfortunately, these are the only stores that I can go to that carry aquatic supply. I have been shopping on Amazon.com lately just to avoid going into these places. My favorite Mom and Pop LFS closed a couple of months ago. It was such a cool place and I am so sad that it is gone. :(
I have bought feeder fish in the past as pets. I really like them. I have two right now, and they are in the tank that I bought the volcano for. I can say they are the luckiest feeder fish in the world. There are man reasons I would never buy feeder fish to feed to my Oscars. :P

I am the ring-leader!

Good for you :)

I never believed in feeding feeder fish to my O, only because I can provide him with way more protein packed and nutritious food, the pellets and frozen food are way better for him than feeder fish, they eat fish in the wild but why make them eat a little ill fish when I have other items that make him healthy?

I am guilty of feeding him some ghost shrimp..

But it was only once, I felt bad for the little guys. I did also have a ghost shrimp as a pet but my Kissing gourami hated it.
