A Place For Pets - Burien, Washington

Post by DMD123 » Thu May 22, 2014 6:23 pm

A Place For Pets in Burien, Washington has been a long time favorite pet store of mine. Its about a 40 minute drive for me so I dont make it up there as often as I would like. Lots of cichlids, Central and South American along with a pretty good selection of Africans. You will occasionally spot a puffer in there. This is where I had my first encounter with a little Fahaka that wanted to bite me through the glass. :D

Ive been eyeballing a little Congo they have right now.....

The Congo is just one of the light brown ones. If it were a red/orange type I would have bought it.

Awh... yeah, I've always wanted a red congo. I haven't seen one yet at my LFS. I went today to get some feeder fiddler crabs, but I didn't have time to browse..

I saw a red congo probably about two years ago but was not interested in puffers then. Now that I have the tank and its been set up and cycled, I cant find what Im looking for.
