|plantetra||ya the lady at the shop mentioned that they are getting a new system itself. I will probably visit them this weekend.|

|Maechael||The petsmart near me did that, then they switched to bagged tc plants that cost 15$ a bag for half of them. Split the goldfish into two groups and used the same tanks for even more fish. But I guess they are now starting again on replacing it?|

|plantetra||I felt the same. They are all really new and neat. Maybe thats why they have healthy fish. If thats the case, the petsmart on Haggerty road in Commerce has a new setup in the making. They sold all the fish out and when I went there, they had no fish and all the tanks were dry.|

|Blackheart||Yeah right lol|

|Maechael||That and the staff if knowledgeable still cares enough to try and keep things clean or alive.|
|10-06-2015 02:42 AM|
|Blackheart||That's probably why because their still a newer location and their tanks are all clean for now.|

|plantetra||I have been buying from petsmart by orchard lake and 14 or the one on telegraph and they never lasted. Funny part is they give live guaranteed for 15 days. And to my bad luck, I have some ghost shrimp in there and so I have never recovered a fish body to show petsmart and get a new one. But all of a sudden I buy 12 fish at 3 occasion 5, 5 and 2 from a petco by Orchard and 13, they all survive. This Petco is small and new. So I am wondering if they are taking good care of it.|

Well yes and no. I never buy any fish from Petco because they always end up dying.
But I did have a pretty good experience with buying Neons from Petsmart in Rochester on Addams road. At the time they had really clean healthy tanks and I picked up 16 of them since they were on sale for a dollar. I did lose a few, but that wasn't bad considering I bought 16 of them and they did live for awhile. That is, until I lost a few to some kind of weird infection in the tank and then accidently killed the rest of them buy not putting prime in the water after a huge water change.
My opinion is if your gonna buy them from Petsmart, CHECK the tanks and make sure they look healthy, have lots of color and the tank isn't littered with dead bodies. I had also bought 6 previously from a really healthy looking tanks at the Petsmart on woodward in Royal Oak and they all lived as well before the infection in my tank. I don't use a quarantine tank, I just acclimate the fish and put them in my tank right away since their the only fish I have. I'm planning on building up my school of Neons to 20 again hopefully soon.

I'd love to hide all that stuff in a cabinet.
