Pet Supplies Plus in Bethel Park is a complete joke. I've frequented this store a couple times and it's ridiculous with their fish and plant selection. Their fish are way too expensive for just regular common guppies and tetras. They have an "Algae eating shrimp" which looks like Amanos and some other amano-lookalike mixed together for $4 each <-- are you kidding me? They just recently took out their SW selection and replaced it with freshwater fish and guess what fish they replaced them with? MORE tetras!

The plants aren't in any better shape than the plants you'd find at Wal-Mart or Petco/Petsmart. Completely covered in algae and rotting away. The last time I was in there I noticed they actually had micro grass for sale but it was in horrible condition. At one point they even had java moss!

Not to mention all their fish equipment looks 10 years old with the boxes turning all brown and yellow and also falling apart. It's a complete joke.

If you're from Western PA and haven't been to the Bethel Park PSP don't waste your time, trust me.

I'd look on the bright side of things: At least they aren't selling SW fish anymore! I've often felt that unless a pet store is committed to doing a good job, they shouldn't bother selling SW fish since they are generally harder to keep. Not to mention most are wild-caught. At least tetras are farm-raised in SE Asia, so if a few thousand die in crappy pet stores, the species will probably survive. Kind of a grim outlook though.

Not being much of a Pittsburgh navigator, I'll have to ask where that is? I know McMurray is near Bethel Park, and I might be going there in a few months.
