Although you may often see these fish kept in tiny bowls at the pet store, that should be a short term situation only.
I went by the Petco and Petsmart to look at fish for sale today here in Kingman AZ. Many varieties to consider, I'll probably get some fresh water tropical fishes, as I'm just not confident enough yet to try a salt water fish aqaurium. I have for now a Fluval Chi 5 gallon fish tank, just a catfish and small ghost shrimp in it. I'm thinking of setting up a 55 gallon tank, quite a jump in aquarium size. Pets Mart and Petco have different fish, well, some are, I'm just not sure which pet store is better. Yeah, one dead fish you see at the end of the fish video, from the Pet smart fish dept.
I'm glad that these pet stores are in town, otherwise it would be only Walmart. There wasn't much to choose from there at the Walmart Fish Department, and it looked like they don't care for the fish that well.
Not sure which of the 50 states you can find these pet shops, possibly in all fifty states here in the United States? In Alabama Alaska Arizona Arkansas California Colorado Connecticut Delaware Florida Georgia Hawaii Idaho Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Maine Maryland Massachusetts Michigan Minnesota Mississippi Missouri Montana Nebraska Nevada New Hampshire New Jersey New Mexico New York North Carolina North Dakota Ohio Oklahoma Oregon Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Carolina South Dakota Tennessee Texas Utah Vermont Virginia Washington West Virginia Wisconsin Wyoming
We went to the aquarium thinking it would be large and interesting, especially after seeing their ads on the side of the train in Portland and in the hotel guide. Unfortunately it ended up being the worst aquarium we've ever been to. The building looks like the outside of a fish and chip shop, probably not the best look for an aquarium... For $11 per adult, you get to walk around the relatively small building that looks like the fish section at a pet store with, quite literally, fish tanks you can easily purchase from a pet store. There are a couple of sections where you can touch things in larger, custom-built tanks which was neat but doesn't really make up for the rest of it. Wasn't worth the drive and the price of admission.

Many fish are put in tiny containers and left there for days. Animals often arrive at pet stores dying of starvation, sick, pregnant, or injured.R.M.S. Aquaculture began as a fish farm on April 1st 1984. The company was started by Steven Zarzeczny, Robert Knyszek, and Michael D'Aversa, who had started breeding a wide variety of fish and then selling them to wholesalers and pet stores. After 3 1/2 years of breeding tropical fish, the partners decided to transform the company into a retail establishment. They worked long and hard to upgrade the dilapidated greenhouse where they had bred fish. R.M.S. opened in Berea, Ohio in July 1987. The low prices, large inventory, unique setup, and friendly expert service, contributed to the store's popularity.Ed's Pet World is a family owned pet store located in downtown Homewood, Alabama.
