Well I went to Walmart, sadly the only fish place even remotely close, today and noticed they had some female danio and seeing that I only had males in my tank, I decided to buy some. I finally got some assistance and the guy tried catching them but with no luck. Next he got somebody else to help me but still to no avail. They got so aggitated that they even let me try, a big big no no, but first I had to swear I wouldn't sue Walmart if I fell off the ladder. After a while I couldn't catch any. The girl tried again but still no fish, well no female. So the lady said that this is the first time that they couldn't catch a fish and told me to come back any day, Monday-Friday from 7-4pm. I probably won't go back, I'll just drive an hour away to a reputable fish store.

Fish stores are allergic to Peoria, Arizona, as far as I know. I live on 109th ave and Deer Valley, and the closest reputable non-PetCo/PetsMart/Wal Mart is on 19th ave and Deer Valley, 100 blocks eastward... :\ The one I go to is in deep downtown, and fish would probably die on the 35-40min trip back home...

So, I gotta try this "closer" one... Smile


I, however, have never had such an experience... Who knows, maybe I'm lucky like that. Smile

Why would they die in a 45 minute trip?

There is one small mom and pop lfs near me, and by near I mean 45 minutes away. The next store(better) is 2.5 hrs away. We drive there once a month and pick up 500 Rosey red minnows and anything else that we might need. We keep the feeders in two 100 gallon rubbermaid tubs with cold water and a bubbler in each.

gotta do whatcha gotta do!
