I had a very similar experience at New World. They sold me a LOT of stuff that I didn't need and completely talked me out of doing a planted tank, which was my dream. I ended up with so much crap that I didn't need. Now I'm moving along happily with my planted tank and I get most of my supplies online, too. I would say that their fish are much better than Petco, though. Much helathier and they are better informed about the fish themselves. But irritating to be sold stuff that's unnecessary.
