Pacific had bumble bee gobies which I haven't seen in a while. Anyone ever ask about the plants in the window for sale. Look like some cool plants, seen them on my way out.

I've seen them in their natural habitat in my mom's home village. I also saw them in petco union square last thursday.

Well I picked up a bumblebee goby from Pacific today, couldn't resist. Got home, and he already looks bad (to my eye)...how are they supposed to act? This guy is very lethargic seeming, and gets blown around by the water current, which isnt strong at all.

They had quite a bit of threadfins which I am interested in, but most of them didnt look amazing to me either.

Win has 'vail rams' in the tank where the electrics usually are which I will assume are bolivians..

I like their threadfins, they started schooling with my Harlequin Rasboras. I cant get them to accept bloodworms though, since they have narrow throats (I'm guessing)

Try cutting the bloodworms. I cut the frozen (thawed) bloodworms with scissors before they're fed to the fish and my threadfins love it.

Lastly, they has some clear shrimp (had a similar body to ghost shrimps except they were under an inch with white stripes. Tank didn't have them labeled but there were at least a dozen+ in the tank with ottos.

Are they still selling Cherries for $5? That would be hilarious, to have Cherries more expensive than Fire Reds.

I miss-typed, its actually $5. They're calling these batch of cherries, fire reds. They are better colored than usual, but still $5. haha


They also have baby arrowanas with the yolk sac still attached. Freaky looking things
