Talking Okay, I'm going to switch to Walmart

Yep, that's right, or at least for the tank equipment (their fish were in horrible conditions compared to petsmart's fish). Hasta la vista Petsmart! I went to walmart and looked in their fish section. They had all the stuff I could need for a tank for quite a bit less than Petsmart sells it for. I mean, Walmart's thermometer is 2 dollars, vs petsmart's which is the same exact thing, but for 4 dollars.

Walmart's supplies are definitely cheaper. I did notice however that they priced gravel vacs at like $8 and I got one at petsmart for $6

Yes, Walmart is cheaper. However, there, their nets are $5 and at my Petsmart sells the same ones for only $3. I shop at Petsmart because it's much, much closer and they carry fish, unlike my Walmart.

I find that Petsmart has a much larger variety of fish stuff than Walmart. (Well, I guess Walmart isn't a pet store.)

Yeah, petsmart has the marineland visi-therm stealth heater, and walmart doesn't. Since I'm not that familiar with other heaters, and MarineLand is a brand I trust I think I'll be buying the heaters from Petsmart. Walmart doesn't have the AquaClear either, but the other filters look promising. :)

My Walmart doesn't even have fish
They don't have critter keepers either. They only have 1 gallon beginner tanks, gravel, and fake plants... They have Elite heaters, though.

My Walmart has fish, but I don't think I'll buy from them. Their koi were stuffed in a tiny tank, and they were barely able to move, and looked about to die of lack of oxygen. There was a tank full of one type of huge agressive looking fish, and all the way on the other side of the wall there was a tank of glo-fish. Somehow, one glo-fish was stuck in that tank of huge fish that looked like they wanted to eat it. D:

Now I'm glad my Walmart doesn't have fish
That's just cruel.
