I bought a Sailfin Tang and Purple ip Anemone from Petco. They were very healthy. And are happy in my 75 gallon tank.

I think that tiny foxfaces are in season. I am probably going to go grab that little foxface tomorrow. Might grab the blue eye too...

All the Petco's I've been to don't have saltwater! It's all about their freshwater and other animals.

I think that's the key, finding someone that is actually in the hobby. That tells me the fish would at least be looked after a bit better than someone who,is just there to sell fish. I just found a Petco across town that sells saltwater but don't know much about the staff.

I would personally never buy fish from pet co without a qt. far to much risk imo of bringing something into your tank, and they have so many different people working threw the week, you never know what's going on with there tanks.

I did how ever get inverts from petco, dripping them, and flushing the water a few times before adding. My brittle star, and fan worm.

I agree. I would QT them as well. I would QT and treat a new fish from any store. It's better to have to wait a little bit than finding out that your new fish has a parasite and just infected your entire tank. =(. Years ago when I had my first tank, I made this mistake.
