  1. Question Where should I get my fish from?


    0 Not allowed!
    I live in Greenock and have been to Dobbies Garden Centre and Waterworld Aquatics in Glasgow. Has anyone bought fish from there, and if so, were they okay? If you have been to a really good aquatics store and bought fish, would you let me know what it was called?
    I don't want do buy from somewhere like Pets at Home as I had a bad expierence buying from there.

    Please help if you can and thanks in advance!

    I've never been there, but to tell if they are good fish stores, look for fish with signs of diseases or unwillingness to eat or school(if it is a fish that normally schools). Also regard the store's refund policy, 100% refunds can reassure you that this is a good store(normally). 25% refunds indicate a store that is maybe not the best choice. Also ask the employees in each store questions, to understand their general knowledge about fish(smart employees usually mean a good store).
    Finally, search for reviews of the fish store online, and look at 3 or 4 of them(if any). I hope this helps!
