    DefaultMy visit to Chilliwack Mr.Pets

    Well I stopped by Mrpets Chilliwack Thursday, to pick up some assain snails they have on for 2 for 1 I must say the store looked clean organized. Fish tanks were all clean and decorated nice fish seemed all healthy unfortunately they only have a few tanks and keep mostly bread and butter fish but there were a couple odd balls. Plants looked good livestock healthy and most staff greeted me including the friendly manager.
    If only they could expand there fish section and bring in more exotic fish I would be there daily lol.
    I say they have worked hard and changed that store around.
    Oh yea and I was allowed to use washroom 😜
    I have MTS Please send Help! lol

    I was in there about a week ago to get some gravel.
    The store was nice and clean and all the tanks and fish looked good.
    They have more tanks now than when it was Pet Culture and Petcetera.
    I didn't ask about the washroom.

    So . . . I went into Mr. Pets (Chilliwack/Sardis) today. I must say it is MUCH improved from when it first opened. The staff was very friendly and available. Neat and tidy store layout.

    The shelves are well-stocked with all the basic (freshwater) tank supplies and food. Although still pretty standard fare, the varieties of live fish and plants were noticeably better in both condition and quantity than seen at my last visit.

    Minor algae growth in some tanks. (Not even close to as scary as the other local fish store I reviewed last summer.) I spotted those pesky snails in the plants tank . . . but I am probably a tad unrealistic in expecting a commercial tank to be snail free! Give the plants a good visual inspection and a rinse, and chances of introducing unwanted snails to your tank should be reduced. (Google search. Several sources provide various methods to rinse the different types of plants.)

    That's my little update for today.


    UPDATE - March 18 . . . Last One (I think?) :

    I was into the store again this afternoon and spotted a tank that has FRUIT TETRAS.
    I believe these are dye-injected fish and do not really occur naturally. Frankly, I was rather surprised - and disappointed - to see these at the store. Please, DO correct me if I am wrong about this species not being found in nature.

    I went into Mr. Pet's in Abbotsford on Saturday, I must say, things looked great! Pretty much the cleanest looking tanks I have ever seen in a pet store. The fish were all very well fed, and healthy. The staff were very helpful and polite, and over all the store was spotless. Well done!
