I was at a Petco once and there was a guy there asking for advice from an employee on fish, he only had a little 2 gallon tank and the employee was trying to get him to buy one of the fantail goldfish saying "these are very Hardy fish, will live just fine in your tank, any temp in fine, yada yada yada" it took everything I had not so say anything because these goldfish were covered in ich so bad they looked like they had just been through a snow storm, needless to say I never went back to that store.

I was at petsmart and witnessed a sales person sell 4 3-4 inch comet goldfish to a couple buying a 10 gallon tank. I had recently just learned comets need a huge tank or a pond. I said something to the employee getting my 5 endlers guppies and he wasn't too concerned. I've only been to petsmart once for fish.

When I go to petco- my normal LFS, I make it a point to tell them when I see dead or sick fish in their tanks. They do a very good job keeping their tanks clean and healthy looking. On my last visit a tank of gold gourami's had the beginnings of ich. So I told the guy. I've talked to about every employee there that works in aquatics and I've learned who to ask advice from and who not to.

I go to Petco in Osage beach mo. They are great and are always very informative, the Petco I went to was one down in Columbia mo. The store was a real small one I think all it had in it was some pet supplies and some fish, someone told me I should have reported the store to headquarters but does that really do any good?
