Never going back to Fishtown USA

this is going to be short because of how pissed i am...

They are all dead!! I recently stocked a 90gal planted tank with around 100 tetras/rasboras/loaches/rams... in two separate batches.

i expected some dead loss... but 30%!!??? Really!??

Ask details and ill answer... just cant get a clear thought to write a long post right now.

Ya I don't wanna come off as rude or anything but this may be more your fault then the store. That's a pretty big strain on your BB.

I'm just curious to know what the ammonia level is at. Clearly no fault of Fishtown, except for letting 50 fish go at a time 8-(

Yeah there should have been some questions asked when they bagged up that many fish at one time. I understand that's a big sale for them but taking the time to understand the customer and their goals mean more sales in the future.

This is NOT the first time that i have had a major loss of fish from fishtown... we actually stopped going there because every time we bought fish (in the past 20 yrs) almost 30-50% died within 2 weeks...

Agreed... unfortunately not too many LFS near me... I absolutely loved Aquarium Adventure, even with their high prices, but they are gone and PetsWarehouse that took their spot i dont care for.
