I think thats right. If they changed it daily the fish would be much healthier

I don't see why they don't.. it would take maybe an hour at most each day to do that.. I know the fish section is not busy during the day.

Or at least every other day! I saw them cleaning the cups once... they were NOT being careful!!!!!!! AT ALL! I wanted to go over there and clean all the cubs gently! I also wanted to ask them something, but they were talking to each other and not even paying attention to anything other then that.

Yeah.. they don't have the best customer service. Another thing they could do is only feed once a week.. sounds harsh but some breeders do that and have very healthy fish. Feeding weekly would help lower the amount of ammonia produced and prolong the life of the fish because the levels would be lower. I'm not sure how often they feed the fish at the stores.

I'll have to ask at my Petsmart how often they feed the fish. I was thinking once a day.

I'm not sure.. the fish usually have a lot of food but that doesn't mean that they are feeding daily.. they could just be feeding weekly and over feeding.

I also saw them feeding, and they were dumping about 7 pellets in each cup.
