I've bought many sw
fish at Petco an have no issues with their fish. I will say, though, that a Petco right near me, I won't go to. I go one much further away and another a little further away. Those are the 2 petcos that take care of their fish stock and have at least 5 staff members who have their own sw
tanks. They're everywhere in this area. And the prices on fish at Petco are better than another stores. The downside is that they don't often carry unusual fish. And only have coral on a hit or miss schedule. For that, I go to 2 different Fish Dr shops around here or fish connection. That's where I get most of my coral, an I haven't had much difficulty with the corals dusting to my tank. Ill admit I've had about 4 fish die over time, but none of them came from Petco, all from the family LFS
. Just gotta be picky about where we buy fish and corals.
