Absolutely not! Lol, the only one I found is geared mainly towards salt with only a few fresh tanks... My favorite store I've found so far is in montclair, it's called Jan's tropical fish, far but worth the drive IMO. Plus she carries a lot of different types of shrimp that I was looking for, that you can't really find anywhere else.

Yes they are both here but you know they have limited stock. And Fish is not their main focus.

I understand about Petco but petsmart should have a whole wall with many fish to choose from. Have you tried petsmart?

Our petsmart is pretty good, the petco live stock is terrible though! I refuse to buy fish from there! Although I got both my bettas there, sometimes they have some decent bettas. I'll usually go to petco for equipment and petsmart or jan's for live stock.

Well it's what you think is best! How big is your tank?

I have a 10g and a 5g in our bedroom. I also just got a 55g used but it was in pretty bad shape. Been trying to figure out how to get the bad lime scale off the glass and the only thing to work so far is bar keepers friend, that stuff works magic! We originally got the 10 for my step son who wanted fish(I didn't) and now I'm addicted!

Yes i have been to petsmart several times and I got my last 4 fish there.
I agree with you, they do have better and more stock than petco where 2 out of 5 fish I bought died. Maybe not their fault since they died 15 days after I got them.
I have been to an aquarium in LA near my job and they had fish I had never seen before. The problem is the are too far from where I live and dont want too keep them in a bag for too long.
I know there are other LFS about 30 minutes away from my house but I havent checked them out yet.

My tank is 80 G with a 20 G sump.
BTW those tanks are nice! And I agree with your addiction. My causin gave me a 5g tank he had and a month later I had to get a bigger one.
