Just went to it today. :/

The place looked and smelled like a total dump, fish were not taken well care of at all...the worst was that they have 3 small bowls, maybe about .5 gallons, with goldfish in front of the cash register.

I may knock on Petsmart sometimes but at least the place is clean and most of the time the animals aren't in bad shape.

I actually went to a wal-mart the other day, now I see goldies all the time there but I have never seen bettas, and I was thankful for that. But there they where in cups half the size of the ones at Petsmart, I really could not believe that people would think it was sufficient! And whats worst 2 out of the five where dead, and had been for a long time, at least a day, and the other three had fin rot. REALLY? My husband had to drag me out of the store, I was out for blood. Lets just say I don't think the manager will be treating fish like that anymore. At least I hope not, I have not been back yet.
