Hello! I'm new to these forums as well but I would like to offer some advice! When shopping for fish I like to go to a local pet shop instead of a big cooperation. For a few certain reasons, which these reasons being completely opinionated. For one, you can get on a more personal level with the staff at a local pet shop than at a big corporation! I go to a shop named wet pets and this shop has been in business for 45 years now. Mr. Allen, whom of which owns the store, knows every little detail of my tank. He's able to pinpoint me to exactly what I need in minutes. All of his fish recurve special attention and nothing goes unnoticed by him. I honestly feel like Petsmart, does just enough for their fish, ya know? But that may not be the case! I've even witnessed Mr. Allen take in and babysit one of his clients fish while they went on vacation to the Bahamas. There are pros and cons to both ways! Like I said, it's all opinionated! Petsmart could be all you have! (By the way, Mr. Allen is about a half a mile away from Petsmart but is still packed everyday) But good luck with your tank and if you will, inform me how it goes!
