Petsmart Princess Anne/Landstown store:
YOU MUST LIE TO THE SALES PERSON IF YOU WANT TO PURCHASE FISH: Lie about what size tank you have, that is the first question they will ask you.
I went into this Petsmart store to purchase two 27 cents goldfish for my son. I was asked what size tank I had and I told the young man it was about 1 1/2 gallons.
He began to tell me that this fish needs so much space and that was not large enough, and he suggested a Betta fish. These 27 cent goldfish are feeder fish and live in a very crowded tank in Petsmart. So I asked him, "So your telling me that you will not sell me a goldfish". He said that he was not allowed and it was against store policy to do so.
With that I asked him why do they sell Goldfish bowls/containers and questioned him that he would sell these fish as feeders only to be consumed and killed.
I do believe that any of those goldfish would love to live in my 1 1/2 gallon tank verses being sold only to be eaten. I will spend my money else where.
