Got 5 potted Cryptocoryne undulata--most of which well adapted to submersion--and a carwash for less than 13 bucks. How, you ask? The clerk at PETsMART rang up the undulata as 2 pots, even though the label on the bag said 5 and the bag is clear! Needless to say, I got outta Dodge with nary a peep other than a cool, "Thank you." Sundays don't get much better than this. :lol:

Lucky duck. Almost as good as the wooden canopy I got for my 29 gallon at PetCo for $11. Did they have any more 2la???

Maybe one or two, but I think I cleaned them out good (I picked up two the day before). Maybe try another local PETsMART (this was the one on Walker Rd), but don't expect the cashier to be as slipshod as mine was.

I had that happen to me once with a 10 pack of neons. They only charged me for one.

Hey, I figure if you're pushing buttons at your local PETsMART, management's already deemed you intelligent enough to put on the payroll. Whether that's a mistake on your part or on management's part, it AIN'T on my part! Besides, I'd think less of me if I were to finagle more money out of my own hands...

It was probably the same clerk who told the little kid's Mom that those cute baby red oscars are great community tank fish!
Ya get what ya pay for when you hire no-brainers!
