Customer Questions for Aquariums
Resolved Question: Aquarium store.......?
why do pet store fish usually cost more than regular aquarium......i want to buy some discus fish and the pet store sell it for $75 dollar and they all are ugly....i went to my regular aquarium and they sell it for only $20 and are much prettier....i hate when this happen...why???? they are just fish..

Resolved Question: When I go to buy the fish for my tank, is it better to buy from petco or an aquarium store?
I don't know if there is an aquarium store even near me that sells freshwater fish, and I'm sure they're more expensive but if I have the option is it better to buy from an aquarium store or somewhere like petco or pet supermarket? Do they all originially come from the same place or do you think the aquarium store fish might be healthier?

Resolved Question: How copuld an aquarium store make more money?
In 2004 I invested $10,000 in a new business, a pet store that specializes in aquariums & fish. At the time, there 3 partners, with $10,000 from each of us. We bought out a partner in 2006. We have 1,380 gallons of freshwater fish on display. That's 12) 37's, 24) 29's and 12) 20 longs. Our saltwater display is 2) 45's, 4) 38's for a total of only 242 gallons. We sell plenty of equipment (about a 15% mark-up) and fish (about 30-40% mark-up) and do a fair amount of service (about 50% profit), but it isn't making us a living. I work another job & my store part time. Last week, instead of taking money for pay, I took our 72 gallon bow front on pine stand with hood. That's about $500 retail. It was on display for nearly a year with no takers, even at cost (about $425). I told my partner we can't sit on items like this anymore. We sell perhaps 15 tanks a week, mostly 10-29 gallons. We sell a variety of fish, not just cheap/small ones. How do we take it to the "next level"? Thanks.

Resolved Question: What the hell is wrong with aquarium store workers?
My largest and most lovely goldfish that I've had since 2008 has come down with dropsy, and I fear he won't make it. So I decided to head down to the fish store today to pick up some maracyn, maracyn 2, melafix for future problems, and aquarium salt. Sadly, the medicine was behind the counter, and when I asked the woman if she could get me the maracyn and maracyn 2 along with the melafix, she looked at me with some sort of stupid blank stare, laughed, and said "What's a maracyn?" and it was at this moment, I felt like slapping her. Then another person came to her and asked her if a larger goldfish would eat a smaller one, and she proceeded to tell them "No, they'd never do such a thing." and I literally facepalmed and glared at her. Shouldn't there be some sort of qualification test they should take before working with animals? I mean christ. That's the thing- this WAS a local store. I'd love to take her job, stupid little twit she was. Yep, I paid 35 dollars to witness an idiot today. I wish stupidity was a disease that caused you to hurt Ha, I've had a horrible experience with dwarf puffers. They always die. Anyhow, I think I might apply there JUST to get her fired, and make sure people are properly informed.
