Saltwater Fish - Sandbar Pet Shop
Resist the urge to make an impulse fish purchase while visiting your local saltwater fish store if you don't know about the species. They want to sell fish and they want you to buy fish! Period. Take note of the species you are interested in and then find all the information you can on them. Many saltwater fish species can be very difficult to get eating in the home aquarium. The first thing you should ask the shop keeper to do is show you the fish eating. The better stores will mark on the label all the pertinent information about the fish, including whether or not it is eating.Big Box pet shops normally do not stock a variety of marine fish and invertebrates. I do know some of these stores have reef enthusiasts working in the fish departments. These dedicated marine enthusiasts bring their expertise to work, transforming the saltwater section from mediocre to a real gem. You’ll also be able to get knowledgeable advice from employees who are actually involved in marine and reef keeping. How to know? Ask questions. Check out the health of the livestock. If the employee starts talking about their own reef tank, you probably found a helpful store.Proper in-store care of saltwater fish and invertebrates is crucial for their survival. No one wants to introduce a sick fish into their saltwater aquarium. Invertebrates require specialized care to ease the transition from coral farm or collection point and into the store. So how do you know if a fish shop has good saltwater fish and inverts, without trial and error and spending a lot of cash? He are some qualities I see in a good local marine livestock dealers. Do they have stable reef tanks on display in the store? Nothing says experience like seeing beautiful, thriving fish and reef specimens in a display tank. A successful reef tank shows they have the skills necessary to keep fish and invertebrates alive. A great store will have their own coral frags. Chances are this level of shop will also have high-quality livestock. But what if the store does not have any display aquariums but they sell fish and inverts? Can they be trusted? If my shop had limited floor space I would choose to use every square foot to sell products, so I could stay profitable. What to do? Take a look at the aquariums. Are they dirty? Is the gravel or base clean or are their piles of debris in the corners? Is there adequate water movement and filtration? A good shop keeps their aquariums clean and functioning properly. Take a close look at the livestock. Do the fish look healthy and active? Do they eat well? Ask an employee what they feed a particular fish. Good staff will know what each fish likes to eat. A really good store will tell you if a certain fish has not been eating or is not quite ready for sale. The same goes with invertebrates. Are the corals placed carefully in the display tanks? Do they look healthy and clean? Can the staff answer your questions about lighting requirements and feeding? If so, you’ve found a reliable store!Are you going to carry only saltwater fish, invertebrates and corals? As you can see in Open/Create Your Own Local Fish Store/Pet Shop, there are 17 times more freshwater aquarium in the U.S. Than there are saltwater aquariums. You might want to seriously consider carrying freshwater fish and products. You also might want to consider at least carrying dog and cat supplies to expand the number of people who have a reason to enter your shop.
