I have found that Petco's are like most lfs's. If they hire good help who care about the livestock they are entrusted with, the livestock will be well taken care of. The problem with the Petco's is that they seldom hold onto these people for long. Too much pressure to move the livestock out regardless of the quality. And forget about cautioning a customer against a purchase due to compatibility, tank size etc.

Our petco is really expensive, and has semi-healthy fish( i mena that the tanks have maybe 1 or 2 dead apiece)
