I went by the Petco and Petsmart to look at fish for sale today here in Kingman AZ. Many varieties to consider, I'll probably get some fresh water tropical fishes, as I'm just not confident enough yet to try a salt water fish aqaurium. I have for now a Fluval Chi 5 gallon fish tank, just a catfish and small ghost shrimp in it. I'm thinking of setting up a 55 gallon tank, quite a jump in aquarium size. Pets Mart and Petco have different fish, well, some are, I'm just not sure which pet store is better. Yeah, one dead fish you see at the end of the fish video, from the Pet smart fish dept.

I'm glad that these pet stores are in town, otherwise it would be only Walmart. There wasn't much to choose from there at the Walmart Fish Department, and it looked like they don't care for the fish that well.
