I pass Petco Union Square daily on my commute. I've gone in less and less and less over the last two years. The quality of their care has gotten worse by the day. I know that I shouldn't expect quality care in general from a chain store like that, but every time I've gone in recently, their invertebrates tanks are full of dead animals, and they've been packing all their South American fish, including 2-3" sized Angels and multiple Rams into the smaller sized displays they have. It's pathetic.
I went into pick up some ghost shrimp a while back, and I ended up leaving because not only did it take ten minutes of me standing there for someone to even ask if I needed help, but the woman who said she'd be with me was netting out some smaller Tetras for a guy and dropped six of them. Guess where all six went? Right into his bag. And he shrugged it off like it was nothing, even laughing with her when she nervously said she wasn't very good at this.
I can tell you that yes, they've had Badis Badis and dwarf Corydoras, but I'd never purchase from them just based on the conditions of their tanks. You're almost certainly bringing home diseased fish, and the stress levels they're under being so tightly packed isn't helping matters either. Spend the few extra bucks and go somewhere reputable.
