I also have to agree about the betta "cups" -- very lonely/depressing.
Even if every employee doesn't know everything, I'd like to know there is at least someone there who does and that those who don't know tell me upfront rather than mislead me.
I actually like it when they ask me what size tank do I have, what fish do I have, what kind of water, etc -- this tells me they are actually evaluating, and if they say no, this fish is probably not good, but here are some others that have a similar look/similar species, whatever, I appreciate that. So I don't feel like I've just wasted a trip.
I HATE seeing the color-injected "painted" fish.
I like to see a variety of live plants and natural decorations -- I'm not much of a fan of pink gravel, rainbow skulls or mermaid cats.
Dirty tanks, dead fish are of course definate turn-offs. I like to see planted/rocky aquariums that provide shelter for the fish.
