My vote is for PetSmart only for their low on-line prices. I have never purchased fish from either store. I went into a Petco a few weeks ago and every tank had this white disk in the bottom that the fish loved to hang out around. I wonder if it was something to make them feel better? It sorta looked like how salt 'melts' in water. That made me suspicious, I didn't ask about it though. The other thing that was a total turn-off at petco was a loud, pre-recorded sound of running water playing from a speaker in the fish dept. Stupid.
I might consider purchasing from PetSmart now that they have opened a store closer to my home -- used to only stop at PS if I was out of town, too long of a drive for live fish.
However, I prefer some of my other local fish stores where the tanks have caves, driftwood, rocks, plants, etc in the tanks and the tanks aren't obnoxiously stocked full with one kind of fish.
