i've noticed that pet supplies plus is good for JUST that.. pet SUPPLIES!! lol

i've been to 2 of them in CT multiple times & other than 1 dude, 1 time, i noticed their staff isn't the most informed (to put it nicely).

i gotta say though, they do have decent prices on equiptment & tanks

That is where I go for my food, gravel, etc. Would never buy a fish there though.

Good call!

But I've seen worse. I have seen a lady at Petco suggest you take some of their water (which is horrible, I must say) and use it to "cycle their tank", which was a three gallon and a goldfish in it. Not good.

She also tried to talk me into buying tinfoil barbs.

AND she was talking about how fish only grow to the size of their tank and it doesn't hurt them, "I have two gold algae eaters in my ten gallon and they've been in there three months without problems!"

I just can't stand stuff like that! I was in the PetSmart and ending up talking at least 5 people out of putting big fish in small tanks for example, four FM's in a 10g, two pacus in a 20g, a JD in a 5g, six convicts in a 15g, and a bichir in a 10g with neons.
I just don't go there anymore because I always leave PO.

Ya imo any fish that isn't finished growing should have a reminder on the tank like this fish will grow x amount and needs a certain size tank or atleast train ur employees to inform ppl of proper tank requirements for any fish in the store

I agree every time I go there it's a new nightmare.

7 mos ago - They had a beautiful 5 in calico Oranda covered in ick. He was priced at 60$.

3 months ago all the goldfish had ick.

Last time they had two pearlscales in with some koi. I looked and saw a fish eye floating then saw the koi were picking apart the pearlscales. I had to go get the manager.
