My Petco here is bad too. They have about 6-8 in a 5 gallon and the water is always low and disgusting the mealworms in the bowl are dead and only one hid. The cage is always dirty and all the geckos are always skinny, sick or injured. I've seen one with a missing eye and so far about three with freshly pulled off tails. The petsmart is better, but no by much. I buy all my reptiles (that arent from breeders or shows) from a local store called carols critters. they have a lot more to choose from and take care of them so much better.
The water at my pets store is filled with slim and are always low and they put fully grown crickets in with the 3-4 inch leopard geckos

its not only with the leopard geckos the crested geckos are mistreated i seen 3 in a 5 gallon tank with a thin layer of sand as suubstrate one tree and small water dish and thats it the hermit and haloween crabs are probaly the best treated animal there and the ball pythons there 20 baby ball python in a 10 gallon tank with 1 tree a small house and paper towel that doesnt cover the whole floor as substrate. the last one is the blue gecko it has 1-3 inches of soft woodchips as substrate and a small stump lots of trees and a rock and its a breeding pair of blue geckos so only 2 but i dont like the way its setup and the food is everywheres so i think im buying one of the blue geckos because i cant house 15 gallon tank at the moment but 10 gall fits right perfect on my desk so i might just get the 1 gecko

At the Petsmart closest to my house I've never noticed any crowding(which is surprising, generally rodents are crammed into too small cages, etc.) I go there to get aquatic plants and fish supplies. :)

Thats cool. Not all Pet locations are bad but the Common petsmart mistreats their pets. I wish that there was some form of training before they handled the animals. Grabbing from the tail and placing them on Dangerous substrates isnt a good idea :/
