Wow - that was a lot of fish. Very cool though - I can see why they sold so fast.

It tends to come in late Sunday afternoon, depending on the delivery guy schedule and the time it takes to acclimate. Often its best to go on Monday to see the new stock.

Very few left as of last weekend. havent been there since. It was either $3.99 or $4.99 ea with buy 2 get 3rd free deal.

@arbai89 - check out our LFS list. There's likely 3-4 in the vicinity. They each get one or two things that might be worth getting but on average, they are only so-so at best unless youre in the market for Koi/goldfish/salt... plants and FW are muhhhh

It's okay...nothing more special than any other Petlands. They're about to relocate actually so you may want to call them to make sure they haven't moved yet.

Thanks. I stopped by today, they were out, was told they might have some on Monday. Totally forgot to ask them about the price. Guess I can just call them on Monday.

I was there today, so they're still open as of today and I have no idea if they are relocating. Did not pay much attention to the saltwater stuff but I've never noticed anything special saltwater/freshwater there in the past, not worth the visit imo.
