Petsmart July 3 ONLY sale

Petsmart is having a 1-day ONLY sale on select Danios, Tetra's & Platy's at for 2/$1.00, My ad shows the select varieties as Sunburst Platy's, Marigold Variatus, Zebra Danio & says White Skirt Tetra (not sure if this include Black Skirts or not).

I may go to see what they actually have.

Thanks .. I hadn't read the other ads they had available yet but thought the 2/$1 seemed a good deal.

Otocinclus are still on sale as well. $1 each until July 21, if I read the price tag correctly. The ones I saw yesterday looked clean and healthy, and well-fed. If I had more room in my 20 long I'd pick up three or four more.

Black skirts, long and short tail, 'gold' or white skirt also 80 cents. Dojos are $2 off, serpae are 80 cents. Lots of fish are on sale, but they aren't anything fancy.
Got 4 black skirts, wish the neon was on sale so I could add to them. Only have one neon yellow, 1 white and now 6 black skirts. I think angels were on sale, but they were micro sized and nothing good left.
Equipment, food and such is also on sale, along with betta fish.

It's funny how for half the year the majority will say bad things about buying fish from the big chain stores because they are disease ridden or that buying from chain stores are closing down mom & pop stores so we should stick together and not buy from them.... But as soon as they have these sales we flock and pick up a bag full of fish :-)

I'm the same though and looking to bring back a "deal" in the next hour lol

What do you mean with special order? Other types or just more quantity?

I'm assuming special order means making a "special" order just for you. I.E. Whatever you want... just as if you were ordering from a mail order site or whatnot. Only you pick up from the store instead of being mailed directly to you. The aquatic specialist at my local Petco will do this for me as well.

Tempted to pick up some Oto's myself. Would be my 1st time owning them, but hear so many good things.

I just came back and got 5 red minor tetras... only 4 bucks... and definitely get Oto's for only a dollar... They do an amazing job with algae and are super active and don't hide all the time with lights on.

We have almost no mom/pop stores and the ones we do, not really that much better than box stores. Rather make several trips to a box store, returning dead ones for new ones than make one long trip and hope nothing goes wrong, because then I'll always be in the hole. Petco is the worst of the two, seems like petsmart tries. Mom/pop shops don't have anything special either and discus from them are over priced and not always worth it. Seems to even out to me.
I just like the security of bringing back a failure when all the others are doing fine. Should apply to all stores and all types of fish, they are property by law and like other property, if the goods aren't any good, you should be able to return them.
Plants should be bought from other aquarists, never had any good plants from a box store, mom/pop plants are rare and big online box plant places give you crummy amounts that are overpriced.
