Petsmart is like a brothel. So many diseases, so little time.
I bought nine guppies from petsmart during their dollar sale, and one died the first night, the next of columnaris, and one of my males started flipping about and swimming in circles with raised scales near his dorsal fin. He just spazzed out and died. Two of my females aren't acting right, and on one, I see tiny strings coming from her sides. I think it's external parasites.
Why petsmart?! Why can't you just treat your fish better? Why do you have to be a cess pool??
The only reason I went to petsmart is because my LPS hasn't gotten guppies in two weeks. I have no patience.
I bet the plecos I got will be diseased too.
I hate going to my tank to see of any symptoms of anything has shown up. It's so stressful!
And the crush of actually seeing a symptom. I've only saved one fish, and I have no idea what it was!
I try and try, but eventually, they fish succumbs or I have to euthanize.
I just want quality fish!!
