Complaint / review text:
I received a fish tank from my kids for Christmas. A sales person helped me purchase things for the tank; a rock and plants, etc.
I settled the water in the tank and then bought fish. The fish kept dying and it was FINALLY discovered after several other fish purchases that the ROCK they sold me for the tank was sandstone which is deadly for fish. I took the rock out and stabilized the water again and then bought more fish. The fish I bought had ICH.
Therefore, it gave ICH to my other fish in the tank and killed them all. The manager at the Petco in La Plata, MD made it seem like I had stressed out the fish by purchasing too many at one time to repopulate my tank. When I asked her if she was blaming me, she immediately retracted her accusation. I told her the fish department manager is the one that helped me pick my fish out and never once gave me any advice.
I am very disappointed in Petco and will not shop there again! They have lost money, since I have a dog, two cats, a bird and my dead fish.
