hi!

Hey all. I'm Christine, I live in Northern Virginia. I am pretty new to fishkeeping compared to a lot of you. I've got a little rant this morning.
I purchased a featherfin cat (little Kitty fish as my son calls it) 3 days ago from petsmart. He went in with my malawis without a problem. When my Aceis started bullying him and essentially eating him I decided to return him. Went this morning told the cchick what's going on. She says we can't take it without a reciept. Fine. Just take him I said. Explained to her my tank was a death sentence for him. She reeeaaallly didn't want to take him until I questioned petsmarts priorities and said if you're honestly THAT worried about the money just please take him. I really didn't want to show my butt but after much persistence I got them to take the poor guy. Anyway, just a fine example of big corporate petstores!
Alright well I'm so glad to be here and looking forward to chatting with some of you! Good day!

Welcome aboard!

Try this link to find any LFS in your area, just call to verify the store is still open.http://zoyzoy.com/aquarium/aquariumstoresmap.php

My daughter worked in a big chain store. They forbid removing any dead fish while the store was open! That's why I ask questions and have them feed any fish i intend to buy.

Here's another link I use anytime I have a impulse to buy a fish. http://www.liveaquaria.com/

Thanks for posting this -- I just used the first link and discovered a nearby store I never knew existed!
