My local pah in Sheffield has well kept tanks and I've never seen a dead fish in any of them. They seem to have a high turnover of fish. There's always a different selection every time I visit. I wouldn't go to them for advice though, the people I've spoken to are less knowledgeable than a newbie like me!

My local P.A.H (Grimsby/Cleethorpes) is the usual when it comes to the fish ie. Dead, overstocked, cold water and tropical species in same tank etc so I'd never buy livestock from there but I do find it excellent for food, medicines, ornaments etc as they are a big chain and the prices are generally cheaper than my lfs. So I guess they are worth having about for that reason alone lol

P.A.H in farnborough is actually ok.The tanks are all very clean and I haven't seen a dead fish to date.The only problem I have with them is they have downsized the fish section to include a veterinary section and thus they no longer sell African cichlids only firemouths and kris.But for cheap food,ornaments and plants they are very good.
Personally I prefer maidenhead aquatics.They have stores all over the country and expert help on hand.

I went to a brand new PAH at Birstall, Leeds yesterday. It's on 2 floors and massive. The downstairs area was excellent, loads of giant cages for rodents and all the animals seemed happy. So, I had high hopes as i went upstairs to the aquarium section. Unfortunately, as I looked round there dead fish in probably 75% of their tanks including. I wonder if they did anything to set up their tanks for a new store?
