That's PetCo for ya. Actually I visited a PetCo near me a few weeks ago and their stock was actually pretty healthy. The one even closer to me is a different story........

Tell me about it. Petco would get a lot more business from hobbyists like us if their stock was healthy. The average person may not know and buy an unhealthy fish, but we know, so they are losing money. They would get a lot more business if their fish were healthy.

The problem is t petco HA will not let store treat their tanks for infections. The SW specialist at my local petco is very knowledgable but has his hands tied in that case.

Our Petco was so bad they quit selling saltwater all together, nothing but sick and dying fish. Good news is the store cleaned up their act.
