today i went to the store to get another emerald crab, but the store was sad, there was an aptasia infestation it seemed in almost all of the tanks w/ live rock. Aptasia all over the place all different sizes.
i looked at the damsel fish, some where dead, some had missing fins, some had dark spots, and alot of fish where in shock, i looked at a mandarin fish upside down alot with other fish still moving mouth but not moving, i asked what was wrong and the lady said they got in alot of fish and they do that sometimes but will recover, and i was thinking this place is horrible.
i saw a peppermint shrimp w/ an isopod in it, it had a big tumor on its side where the isopod was and i told the store lady and she said, " well there's nothing we can do w/out killing it " well ****, so someone else who doesnt know whats wrong with it is supposed to put that thing in their tank?
blue tangs where 75$ !!!! thats crazy, i know another store that sells them for 30 bucks.
Aquarium World off 290 is a horrible place, they dont take care of the fish and their prices are high on a few things, the blenny's where even expensive, 16$ ! i got mine for 9. i tested their water from the emerald, and it seems they want to cut back on putting salt in the water, SG
was 1.016 !!!. its cruel how they treat their fish.
