Each. I've seen them on LI for $40+ each.

Petco also had some apistos, but I was able to resist. Didnt get a chance to check price though.

Anybody knows when petco has $1/Gal sale again, are they running it every year? I remembered asking a store employee that question and was told they run several times per yr. I am waiting to get a 40 breeder. It is April now, just wondering.

I believe they do the petco $1/gal sale quarterly but they do have it several times per year.

They use to run it twice a year with their big semiannual aquatic sales, but I think they had the sale like 40 times last year.

Anyone ever use the fish return policy at petco? I saw one guy do it, and he just brought the dead fish in ziploc bags.

I think this dead fish policy is quite honestly stupid, good for the scammer though. They can actually buy a live fish similar to the dead one at home and bring their own dead one to get a new fish. Don't do that, very unethical. On the other hand, it is good to those who actually got a bad stock from them which is quite often the case with petco.

I did return fish to Petco a few times when I first started out. I don't think they can even tell the difference between their fish quite honestly.. you could probably just buy a bunch of expensive Rainbows and then return some Mollies to them for the money back.
