I used to work at petco and i couldn't stand it there. The abuse of the saltwater fish was upsetting. DO not listen to any advice the aquatic specialists give you. They are ignorant and they do not know what they are talking about. They ordered anemones, inverts exc, without sufficient lighting or proper feeding methods.

DO not buy any fish from them , they usually come in withh disease and the box just sits there unopened all day long. Even though their prices are cheap, their fish are not worth buying. Just my 2 cents.

the one near me orders anemones too, but they sell so quick it doesnt make a differnce, I am lucky to have a good petco (yeah the people that work they or a majority of the dont know sh*t) also one guy said, "you should wait for your tank to cycle twice before adding live rock!" :D I laughed when I left...

Saw some anemones there today when I was getting some SW. They looked pretty bad. They had a coral banded shrimp with a lump on his back. The girl said it had molted about a week ago but that thing was still there. I bought it and put it in a 10 gallon (its the only inhabitant) just to see what happens to this guy. They accepted my half-price offer, mostly because I frequent the place for my wife's guinnea pig supplies. Its sad when a manager recognizes you.

I completely agree.

Petco is sort of a black hole for poor innocent saltwater lives. I always want to take a net along the aquatics section and scoop out the dead fish, which are many. The business is spreading like a bad rash.

 

Petco, where the pets go!

Coming soon to a city near you!
