    I recently went to petco to buy my first couple tank inhabitants- A small red sea star, 3 little hermit crabs, a damselfish, an emerald crab, and a snail.

    Stopped into Petco today and saw a stack of misc tanks, this is indicative of a pending sale IME. So I inquired and was informed that the sale starts June 29th! Figured I'd pass this along. I also looked and saw that the 55 gallon says "DO NOT DRILL. ALL PANELS TEMPERED" and the 20, 20L, 30B...

    Just saw my email from Petco and wanted to give everyone a heads up. It's for the 10, 20,29,40, &55 gallon Tetra tanks. And this time they even have a Tetra 10g or 29g kit at 50% of. Kit includes tank led hood filter and digital thermometer. Also if you buy one off these tanks they give you a...

    Hey all, My wife is the "Aquatics Specialist" at Petco here in MS, and I think she's about to have a big problem. They just got a brand new setup for their saltwater tanks, it's pretty massive. They spent a decent amount of money on it, they even bought full spectrum LED systems for it...

    Local rochester petco has nice new selection of saltwater fish. Nice big copper banded butterfly and sailfin. Also nice pairs of skunk clowns and black fin clowns. Worth going to take a look.

    The Petco closest to me has clownfish for $13.99. Their new batch of livestock comes in today and I was going to go up there and pick up 2 ocellaris clowns for my new cycled 20g long tank. The cycle finished 5 days ago and I did a waterchange yesterday. Everything is perfect. Anyway Petco is 30...
  12. Reef Fish
    Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I couldn't find an applicable one. I know of the reputation of Petco local stores, and that they are often very bad. But I was wondering if anyone has ever bought their inverts, corals, fish, etc. online? The prices are pretty good, and I don't think they...

    FYI, I just got a call from someone I met that works at Petco. They are having their $1 per gallon sale again. Going to get my 40 breeder RIGHT NOW :)

    Specifying to saltwater species only!! I have never bought from them because I was told "petco=deathco" about 5 years ago from my aquatic science professor. Just relaying the info. Because I have read so many stories of deaths of saltwater species that come from petco. I am sure many success...

    Saw this at the local Petco and it is huge. Actually looked good. It touched the glass on both front and back of tank.

    I am considering ordering from Petco. Has anyone ordered from them? Needed a couple lyretail anthias and they have them on sale.

    Hey folks, I just wanted to let you know the $1 per gallon sale is going on right now in my area. It applies to the 10, 20, and 40 gallon tanks. I don't think they publish this sale so might want to give your local Petco a call. I finally scored my 40 gallon sump for my 125.

    So I though I would share a little story with TRT.:) Some of you know I recently moved my 4 year old 75 to a 240. I had to stop in to Petco today to pick up salt, I had run out about 40 gallons shy.:( While I was there I notice the systems had been set up FOWLR and Reef, one side reef and...
