Petco Grand opening
« on: February 22, 2007, 08:26:27 PM »
Well, seeing as how I live 1/2 mile from the new Petco, I was chosen to go down and converse with them about the grand opening.  Sat and Sun is when it is happening.  Fish of interest are chromis at $1.50 ea, false percs at $14.99 ea, and with the purchase of the clowns, you get a free 1 oz bag of food pellets.  Their other damsels will be on sale as well, but we all know what happens to damsels.  Please remember that Petco keeps their SG at 1.021 so if you are like a majority of the club, and keep yours at 1.025 your acclimation should take longer than from other vendors.  I was also told at some time in the not to distant future, that they will be able to order fish for you.  You have to pay for the fish in advance, but they cover the shipping in with their regular order.  Check online  pricing to get an idea of the price of the fish.  Another thing you might want to keep in mind, they get their shipments in on Thursday or Friday, and they get in stuff that they don't know what it is.  He was telling me that they had a Scotts Velvet Wrasse (which run $80-140) come in and was labeled as a misc fairy wrasse and they sold it for $19.99.  Someone else told me of the selling purple tangs at $19.99!! :o  So keep an eye out, you might find a bargin.  I told him that he was going to have a flood of people for the chromis, so happy hunting. ;D
