    I have visited almost every single fish store in this area, and this store has to be the worst one I’ve seen.

    They have great selection and I won’t deny that, but a good selection means nothing when the fish are sick and dying. I counted precisely 14 dead fish in the store, some of which appeared to have been dead for days. Others were extremely sick, like a polleni grouper with a huge, presumably painful, air/fluid bubble underneath the skin of its eye, a group of oscars covered in hundreds of ich spots, and a guttatus tang suffering simultaneously from a velvet infestation and a bacterial infection.

    Now, I know some fish die and sickness runs rampant in newly imported fish, and I’m not saying that this is the only store that has to deal with it. My problem is that it takes 5 minutes to comb over the store removing dead fish every morning and a few seconds to scoop one out that dies during the day and this store can’t seem to find the time to do that. They also have no interest in treating sick fish either, as evidenced by the dozens of obviously sick ones.

    Despite the poor conditions these fish are kept in, I saw a couple neon gobies that I liked and was interested in. One had a little bit of fin rot, but if they were a decent price, I figured that the few days in antibiotics that it would take to treat him would be worth it. So I tried to find an employee to help me, since the price wasn’t labeled on the tank, but I couldn’t find one that wasn’t busy. So I waited for a few minutes, making sure to make eye contact with anyone who looked like an employee so they would ask if I needed anything, but that didn’t happen. I finally approached an employee and asked how much the neon gobies cost. He said “I don’t know that, but I’m getting fish for someone so please wait.” in a not-so-nice tone. I watched him for a minute, and all he did was follow a lady around the store while she looked at the fish trying to figure out which ones she wanted. In my opinion, it wouldn’t have killed him to take 15 seconds to look up the price, or to ask another employee really quick.

    I’m actually glad he was rude to me though, because now I realize how stupid it would have been to support a business that treats their animals and customers that way.
