I don't buy from them anymore either, I only ever bought one thing from them, a 20gallon tank which to be quite honest, was a good tank, and still is, but that is down to the manufacturer more than pets at home!!!

Ahh I hate how they don't even like care for they're fish really. At least that's better than my experience at Petsmart... They dropped my HAMSTER when I was getting him. But it was nice of them to provide my hamster health care after he had a few minor bruises. I think if people at Petsmarts or petco's don't know how to handle animals, they shouldn't at all.

Sounds like my walmart's fish/pet guy. He's awesome. I went in there monday and told him about the fish eating eachother friday and he was "No one feeds them when I'm not here." He was pissed about it, and sad too. A couple of bettas died over the weekend while he was off 'cause no one changed the water and whatnot. And I told them he was like "I know. But they're in their own bowl so the other fish can't eat them. However, the others can be, so I've got to fish them out first."

The betta I got monday is lookin' alright, if a bit... i dunno.

And the bettas at the local petco were in clean water. But most of them have fin rot. ;-;
