Owings Mills Petco selling Amanos as ghost shrimp

Well Figured I would share this since it really surprised me. Sunday I was picking up some crickets for my frogs and decided to take a quick glance at their tanks. I was very surprised to find they are selling Amano shrimp as ghost shrimp picked up 6 myself, but they had about 10 left Sunday. I'm guessing this was a vendor mistake, not sure how else that might have happened since I've never seen a big chain selling Amano shrimp. Could be the same at other Petcos in the area.

^ that is what they charged him. This reminds me, I still need to try going there to see if they repeated their mistake, my tank could use more Amanos!

Another good deal at Petco is Fluval x05 filters for under $50. They are on clearance since the x06 models replaced them. I picked up a Fluval 405 for $50, and a friend found a 105 for about $25. So cheap for a canister filter! They're rather uncommon, so if you find one definitely grab it! Out of the 8 Petcos I tried, I found one 405.
