M3th0d- actually the salesperson I had the bad experience with was female. I won't ask her for fish help ever again. She bagged 4 cories for me, and practically squished them up against the glass to catch them, and then literally tossed them into the plastic bag. Not gentle at all. But last time i was there, I had a great experience- I wanted specific fish too, and the big guy who was helping me was kind enough to let me net my own fish. Wish everyone would do that. Well...maybe not.
Dennx- Come to think of it, I have made the trip to Pettown in Lakeforest. I didn't think I'd been there because I keep getting it confused with Lakewood, and think it must be a different store. Pettown was okay, I liked the fw fish selection, (and they had cherry shrimp, but they were $$$) but I found the plants to be of a rather poor selection, and algae-ridden. Not much dry-goods slelection. Another thing I found disappointing: their display tanks were nice, but had unusual fish and plants that they did not have in their sale tanks. I really don't understand what the point of that is.
