Grocery store fish?

My local Meijer store has been having great plants/fish for about the last year and a half. My walmart is still terrible. Are your grocery store fish any good?

they sure are, pan fried in a little butter with a bit of rosemary, parsley and lemon, a little sprinkle of paprika and black pepper and they are definitely good.
YUM

seriously, you get tropical fish at the grocery store.
that's a new one for me.

I don't get fish there, but they're plants are worth looking at. Great swords, crypts, and rotola.

My Meijer has decent plants, but the health of their fish isn't the greatest. The staff at mine don't understand the care of them.

I was browsing one time when they were talking about their goldfish not being active. They summed it up to the temperature of the tank being too low at 75 degrees

I know how u feel. My lfs store closed down at one point, so I had to rely on other sources. Then I found another one and I lived happily ever after.
