Interesting Find At Petco

Did you get it? I’d be curious if it colored up better under good lights and parameters (which I’d bet PetCo doesn’t have even if they have corals).

PetCo bought Live Aquaria and Diver’s Den. I wonder if they will be stocking local stores better? There’s a PetCo near my house, I’ve only been in a couple times (for dog and cat stuff) but I’ve seen a few sad saltwater livestock offerings.

I have never seen coral at our Petco. We go there a lot for dog supplies and fish food.
Fish tanks are not half bad. Always have been, except for goldfish feeder tank.
I have definitely seen worse at various LFS. But aquatic central definitely beats them.

the Petco in South SJ and in Saratoga carries SW fish and corals... the on in South SJ is better though.

Doubtful, that requires a major equipment overhaul, and as much as I hate to say it this hobby isn't exactly a high turn over/profit one. I've seen some soft corals at one of the local Petcos (when I need that emergency heater or something :D) but nothing too big, and they still are a bit on the expensive side for what they are.
