I've only bought fish at Rainbow once a few month ago but had the same experience with Ick showing up in my tank within a week.Damn thats a hard one for me. Last time I went to Rainbow i bought a few pleco's and lost them. My whole tank almost crashed and suddenly ick showed up for the first time in years. Ive bought two royals there and a few other fish but only have a Spotted Bushynose Pleco that have made it. Still ill probably stop by again. Thanks for that! Hoping to head up Friday and thats not far from Aquarium City so ill go by!
That’s my worry going there. Every time I’ve bought fish I’ve had a tank crash. Yet I’ve heard others say different. I’ve lost two royals from there and a few other Plecos, but currently have the one pleco that’s ever survived in my tank. He’s a Spotted bushynose and is a great pleco. With the fish I have right now though I’m just not going to take the risk, they were way too expensive and mean too much to me.I've only bought fish at Rainbow once a few month ago but had the same experience with Ick showing up in my tank within a week.
Damn those are absolute beasts! Beautiful fish I need to try and get out there! Thank you for that!These were sent to me by a friend on here who went to Vanstar.

As for Rainbow, again I've never had an issue buying pleco there. I have from some other local places. The only bad fish I bought from them just wasn't in great condition to begin with. They had another one that they offered to replace it with but when I got there it had died too - bad batch. They gave me my money back with no hassle at all. I understand being hesitant to pull the trigger someplace where you've gotten bad fish before but from my experience, their fish are fine. Just look closely to see if you can spot any issues up front.
When you say it wiped out your tank or caused it, are you putting the water from the store in your tank?
I've bought tons of plecos over the last few years. Some great ones, some bad ones and some great ones that I managed to kill. We hall have shops we like or dislike. While I'm not trying to push Rainbow, my experiences with them have always been positive in the past and on the rare occasions issues popped up, they made things right where many others would not have.
