I deal only with "Tropical Fish" and Aquarium kept stores. I don't deal with the multi pet stores. They normally don't know enough about fish when they deal with so many animals. Best to deal with the "experts". Grocery store types have fish departments but workers may know nothing about fish care. You will see many dead and diseased fish in stores like that. If you ask about cycling the tank and they don't tell you what you find here or look at you like huh... check elsewhere. One clue is recommending a Pleco for a 10 gallon tank....NO NO!!

Go in one and ask lots of questions on breeding, water temp, suggested minimum tank size, etc. Write down answers if you can't remember. Come here and ask same question or check fish profiles here. This will give you a clue of weather a place knows it's stuff. Then you can ask about store credit, exchanges/swap out of fish policies etc.
