Special Petco

Post by freshpuffer1 » Sun Dec 09, 2018 6:15 pm

There's this Petco in Plesant Hill, Georgia that you can basically order any fish by preordering. There were some DP, and rarely, fahakas, SAPs. And they take care of the fish great, and I saw them feeding bloodworms. I advise you guys to go check it out. :D
Hopefully the helps! :D freshpuffer1

I tried at my local Petco, they said no.

Yeah, there's one like that in Needham, MA. They get in a lot of rare plecos, even L46 a couple of times. Not too many puffers other than GSPs, but one time there was a Miurus.

I have my local Petco that will bring in special fish on occasion. Never approached them to special order anything but they do suprise me on occasion with what they order in. Ive seen lemon oscars, red devils, ropefish as an example. These are usually not the typical fish offered. But then a few miles away by the mall there is another Petco that is very cookie cutter with stock and boring.

:D You can basically order any fish there.(Except probably piranhas, sharks and blue whales.)
