My husband talked me into getting fish last night. We got 5 neon glo-fish, 3 tetra, and a bottomfeeder. Before we even got home a tetra had died (I think the lady at Walmart gave it to us dead though). And this morning my pink glo-fish died... I'm sad because she was my favorite. All the others are yellow and orange.
My question is, does anybody know the policy at Walmart for fish?
And can someone help me out with letting me know if I doing something right or wrong?
We've got them in a 3 gallon filtered tank with a heater. We're feeding them Tetra tropical fish flakes. The saleslady said that is fine, and they all could live together...but...I'm questioning Walmart's actual amount of information regarding the keep of fish....
Is there any help out there????

If its a brand new tank, it needs to cycle before you put fish in it. As far as wal-mart fish go.... I have had the WORST luck with them. Every one that I bought for my dad's koi pond died within a week. Then my DD bought me a puffer for x-mas there and it had parasites that wiped out half of my big tank (55 gallon)
Our wal-mart has a 90 day return policy if you have a receipt. Pack up your dead fish in zip-locks and go get your money back. Then take a water sample from your tank to a real pet store and let them test your water.
