Craw Chief I know this is an old thread and it happened a while back, but I just wanted to say how insanely glad I am this place closed. The one time I went in there (early 2009( and saw the cages they had those dogs in, I was mortified. I checked up on them online and, sure enough, they got their dogs from puppy mills.

The guy running the store was like a car salesman trying to get me to buy fish. It was pretty terrible. I couldn't be happier that they closed.

Lisa816 I went to Petland in BR last weekend, and their tanks do look very bad. They were all covered in algae and there was not one single live plant in any of them. According to this thread they had live plants, but I see now that was in 2006. They definitely don't have any live plants now.

Born4spd Petland is Disgusting nowadays.
Fish Selection is garbage, and the tanks are all covered in algae, customers cant even see into the tanks.

The only reason they stay open is because of the puppy mill.

The only place i recommend is the Petsmart on Millerville in baton rouge, i work there so i know it is well maintained :P

Mjc20 went to petland yesterday just to browse....they had a great selection of freshwater fish, but no one on staff was knowledgeable enough to 'help' me. several people tried to tell me that a cyprichromis was actually a compressiceps. i was horrified when i saw how well some of their tanks were maintained....

i can honestly say i will never buy fish from them

danepatrick well thanks for all of the compliments guys.

chuckeff I also buy all of my fish at Petland now. Dane is very knowledgeable on fish and plants. And if he does not have an item, he will do his best to get it. Also, I have had a lot of good luck buying fish there.
