Sorry, flipz, but what you were told, is wrong. I actually work at Jack's warehouse, in their fishroom, and very very few of the fish come from breeders. The majority of all the fish come from large scale wholesalers in FL. What was said about each individual store varying, is absolutely right. The staff at particular locations, are much better than others.

If your talking about the gerbers in Dayton. They do. I used to buy from them all the time when I had a brackish tank. Now I hardly buy from them at all because of some bad experinces with them. I now goto Jacks in Huber or petland in Piqua.

gerbers steered me all wrong on setting up my tank. They told me that they could sell me everything to set up a 75 gal sw (live sand, lr, & sw) for $200.00. So when I go down the next day after draining and cleaning my 75 to buy the 40 lbs agronite, 40 live sand, and the 75 lbs live rock ( i mixed my own sw) the guy I talked to the day before proceeds to tell me that he couldn't sell me all that for $200 like he said the day before, After a little discussion about the price and what he told me he tried to tell me that he meant it would be $200 just for the lr. Which I then asked if he was going to sell me 75 lbs or lr for $200 and then he backed out of that. So all I walked away with from them was 80 lbs of sand. If I would have known it was going to cost me as much as it did I would have never gone sw, i would have stayed with my brackish that I had for 5 years.

My sister has been fighting over a nano cube that they sold her about 2 weeks ago. It had a faulty ballast in it when she got it home, she called and they told her that they would not replace the nano cube and that she had to bring the hood down and that they would fix it. She went down and had it fixed an then 1 week later it goes out again and she had to "cause a scene" to get a new hood for it. They wanted to fix it again. That cube was only 1 week old.

Yea petlands tanks look nasty right now Rob told me that gerbers sold them 700lbs of "cured" live rock and when they recived he shipment it ended up not being cured and it realoly thru their system outta wack. I like petland alot (I try to deal with Rob). I'm going to have to wait awhile before I buy anymore fish anyways.

o well thats not good. i have had really good experience with gerbers so far and they helped steer me in the right direction to set my tank up. have u ever checked out marine solutions. its in waynesville. not a large selection of fish but a really nice store but is a nice trip. i am from troy as well and it stinks that there is no stores closer wit the kind of selection like gerbers has.

Yea i know. I did hear a rumor that there was going to be Jacks somewhere by walmart. I'm pleased with gerbers fish selection but I just have a problem with that one salesman. Honestly though Jack's prices are cheaper than gerbers.

i just think the people at gerbers know more about the fish than people at jacks and have really gotten to know the people that work there and are very helpful.

not that i think you guys exist anymore, but you went all the way to jacks in toledo to get fish? and you live in columbus?

Has anyone bought one of their saltwater pro kits with the aquarium when buying one at jacks? It comes with filter, live sand etc etc, the 55 gal with stand was a bit less than $650 I believe. Are these good deals for their saltwater kits or is it best just to price out other places ( online / other pet stores etc). I use to live in Columbus, but now in Findlay and my choices are limited to Pet supplies plus and jacks when I'm up here. I am in Cols. often ( and miss aquarium adventure!) but I wouldnt want to buy a fish from there and subject it to an hour and a half in a car. anyway.. are the saltwater kits worth it when starting up?
