Out of 18 cardinals by next morning just 4 servived, polka dot loaches developed ich in my quarantine tank. Now on treatment. All alive. I did not expect to pick up sick fish from Fish Town USA.
Cardinals are wild caught and always have a chance of getting a super stressed batch. I have had problems like that to. They get moved so much before they land in the store. Usually the trip to a new place does them in. Same experience I've had.

Does Monster aquarium usually have rummy nose and how's their selection of driftwood and pricing?

Drove past there a few days ago- looks like only parking is garage across the street?

They usually have rummys. I have 21 in my tank from monster. They have a nice selection of driftwood too. I can't speak to their pricing.

Parking is free for 3 hours in the mall across the street. Sometimes I just park illegally in front.

I bought a 3" golden discus from monster. He's doing great. Love that store. VERY clean.

Why don't you just call Petco and ask when they'll be on sale. They may know or be able to give you a better idea than we can. But I don't think it will be for $1. I don't think I've ever seen them for sale anywhere for $1.
