Golden Fish off Colfax

I stopped by there tonight after hearing some potentially awesome reviews. GREAT selection of Africans and a beautiful selection of various strains of discus. They also had Jardinis!

However. Rude lady, dyed tetras and honey gouramis, and about a third of their tanks (and that's a liberal guess) was dealing with either HITH, fungus or ich. Their tanks were either mislabled or not labled at all, and I decided to walk out after counting the fourth young discus on its side. "3 black ghost knives for $33!!" That's a one-stop shop to lure in naive fishkeepers who don't know how to care for those beautiful large creatures.

So, IMHO, crappy ethics and some serious need for attentive treatment and preventative care.

Ahh it'll be alright I didn't go with any intention of buying anything, I just wanted to scope it out and thought others in the area might be interested in what I saw.

She/they get GREAT selection of cichlids, but I question their ethics and capacity to care for them.

thats what I meant by "when their good their really good" When they just get there shipments in they have amazing fish but the longer they stay the worse they get. I have seen some VERY rare fish in there including these 2 I bought from there a long time ago they were a bit smaller then though
