Post Best Store to Buy Fish From?

I was wondering what the best store to buy fish from is. We are surrounded by local pet stores, but one we went to to get fish from wasn't very good. My sister's guppies died after 3 days, so we went back. She got three more of a different kind of guppy, which died after 5 days. Then we went back and got 3 more guppies, and looked at some other pet stores. She saw some zebra danios at a pet store and wanted them, so we decided that if the guppies died, we would get the danios. The guppies died a few days later, and we got the danios. Then the tank water became green with algae so we got a SAE. The SAE died of the water being too clean, and got eaten by the danios. We got another SAE and it died of the water being too clean, but didn't get eaten. She's feeding them properly, so they shouldn't eat other fish. Anyone know anything about this? Anyway, we got another SAE, it was a baby. From that pet store, I noticed a lot of dead fish being eaten, so I am wondering which pet store is best to buy fish from.

Re: Best Store to Buy Fish From?

You might wanna ask this in the freshautolinker.com autolinking image water section Victoria. However, I do know a way to solve your problem. Just google fish stores around your home town and then once you find them, look at the reviews for them. I googled "fish stores around columbus georgia" Here is what I found on google.https://www.google.com/maps/search/f.../data=!3m1!4b1
I found out that neptunes reef was close to me. I then looked at their reviews and decided to go there. It is an AWESOME place. They even let me catch my own fish :D. I have yet to go to Aquatic life :(

Sounds like with so many fish dying that something else is the problem. No fish dies from too clean of water.

What I mean is, my sister's SAE was dying from not having enough algae to eat.
