I think the water sample thing is a bit overboard but that's just my opinion. Great stock or not, I'd not return to a place that expected me to bring them a 'sample' of my water.

I think it's a great idea. I would gladly bring a sample to get a warranty on a saltwater fish. I'm used to no warranty at all.

I feel that if someone brings home a fish to a toxic tank and the fish dies, that is not the stores fault and they should not lose money by replacing it. Probably why most places just go with a no warranty policy.

That's why they don't warranty them, for sure, I know I won't.

I think a water sample for a warranty is fine, I just don't want to be told to go home and get some water just so I can buy one of their fish.
