my petco's usually have the WORST selection of plants...all of them look dead and im pretty sure the employees dont know what to do with them.
Petsmart taking away their planted tank (usually its the 4 tanks that pour into each other) was in my opinion one of the dumbest/best things they ever did...
Dumb because i loved buying live plants from them (WAY BEFORE I WAS INTO HIGH TECH and knew nothing about ferts/etc).
And Best because people who go to petsmart never buy their live plants...if they do, they take it home to their crapy setups, plants die and leave a mess, they never buy again. Simply put, it was a loss leader for them (only because they didnt educate their employees on keeping live plants, or anything about fish in general xD...i say this because im an ex petsmart employee)
