While it is possible to find discount fish supplies from very reputable sources, you should always be careful when looking for cheap supplies. If a deal seems too good to be true, perhaps it is.
Here are some tips to help you ensure that you find a reputable source to purchase your discount fish supplies from:
• The store should be clean and well lit.
• All of the fish and other animals in the store should look healthy.
• Consider shopping at and supporting a local pet store rather than a Wal-Mart or a large chain. You will likely run into more helpful and better trained staff.
• Watch out for fish that have been dyed – it is better to get the real thing than a fish that has been discounted because it has been painted!
Ask friends and family where they bought their discount fish supplies and ensure that they are happy with what they got before you go to the same source.
