Every time I go to Petco for just fish food or filters, I always see a dead fish. Most of the time, dead fishes. It strikes me with realization, that the people who work there don’t notice it. And I, a random person just coming around and buying something, see it. It’s quite disgusting. I bet everyone has seen a dead fish or two, but EVERY SINGLE TIME I go to Petco, there’s like 5 dead fish right in front of the workers there. Its almost annoying. Sometimes I tell the people there to take the dead fish out, but they obviously ignore me, and try to sell some little boy a goldfish bowl. Also, I’ve been to PetSmart, and Kahoots, and their service and fish quality is over 100% better. I bought a Zebra Danio from Petco, and BAM, the next day it died. My father complained to the store and they said ” oops, sorry about that, how about a nice betta fish?'’ I walk over to the betta fish isle, and there are several dead ones. I nearly exploded when I saw that and (calmly) asked my dad to leave. This happened around 2 years ago. Also, I took another picture when I was there
There were some dead crabs floating around one of the tanks. I baby barfed inside. How gross is that? (Wait I think they’re crabs) I highly suggest a Kahoots or PetSmart for anyone interested in fish, not supplies.
Kahoots vs Petco
• good service | • ignorant if customer needs
• fish healthy and well | • dead fish in most tanks
Well, that rant is out of the way. Thank you for reading, and maybe someone can suggest another good fish store? I’m planning on getting an Oscar, and I want a healthy one. But thanks again, for reading.
