Other than the one that sells puppy mill puppies, (not shopping there ever) there is only Petsmart and Petco. Petco is always more for some reason.

I hate chain pet stores - the petsmart around here doesnt even sell SW fish. My LFS is a small family owned store and only sells and services SW so its nice because of quality =)

I'd rather petsmart not sell saltwater. Petco's is disappointing.

Nothing like a dead yellow tang still in the tank to ruin the mood....

I tried to. >> Unfortunatly my lfs (the only one for 75 miles) only specialized in cichlids and discus for freshwater so I have to play nice with the chains for mollies or platys.

Yea.. They generally have people in the fish department that don't even know FW let alone SW. Every time I go there, the SW fish look pitiful and at Petco it's even worse! I can understand that they are a corporate buisness, but if you're going to do something then do it right!


On another note, yet more bad news.. Tonight my parents :censor:ed at me about money.. again. So looks like I have three options: 1) sell everything aquarium related and re-start when I'm done with college. 2) ignore their and just keep on going with the plan, but I don't want to listen to it anymore.. so I don't know.. and 3) sell everything, buy a car, get a (REAL) job, and earn money to re-buy everything. The problem with that is that everything was either a really good deal or it was luck that I got it for the price I got it.

And everything was going so well..

That's disappointing.

My parents pulled the same on me. I paid for my car by selling my 150 year old violin. Saddest day ever. I guess they think giving up a hobby for something will make it more important and you can get back into it later.

I still don't have another violin though... that's a cruel parent trick. Maybe atleast downgrade?
