    As franchises, I think reports will widely vary between shops. However, I would be very cautious indeed buying any fish from my local one. The staff seem uninterested and I've seen several fuzzy bodies in different tanks.........does not help they all seem to be on the same filtration system. :(

    Thought they would get a slating, but each store to their own. My local shop is very good with some decent run of the mill fish. Others are dire depends on staff and attitude, this plays a huge part.

    Pets from Home is not a franchise here. As a general rule here do not buy fish from a franchise. Their stock tends to be small, sickly, poorly maintained, and often not correctly identified. Most of their clerks are high school kids and students with no knowledge or interest in their stock.
