Apparently it was acquired in 2014/15 according to records. Did they separate?

I have Gar outside in the lake..... I could catch, tank and feed, lol. But this tank is not nearly big enough- nor am I 'that' kind of fish keeper. I like things peaceful, planted and utopia (except when I feed live food and giggle like a schoolchild)

Thats news to me, I was under the impression they were an independently owned and operated business.

Link source where owned by Petco- would like to see it.

There are hundreds of links i guess- but specifically:
https://about.petco.com/2014-11-19-P...ster-and-Smith

https://reefbuilders.com/2019/01/10/...a-will-remain/
https://www.digitalcommerce360.com/2...stersmith-com/
It is listed as a 'business' by petco.

None of these links show a connection between Aqua Imports in Boulder CO and Petco.

Liveaquaria WAS owned by Dr Fosters and Smith.
Petco bought them in 2014

Many people can chime in here that will agree (I pretty much consider it a well known fact).... but they are nervous considering our other conversations.
This link says it all- look at the bottom. Ill post it again:

Thanks! I think it will be pretty neat- it may be small, but it is detailed. I am not looking forward to coating in epoxy- with this many crevasses- I think i should practically 'dip it' and then brush it off. Therefore; This is deep garage territory with lots of prep. However I am sure ill tackle it tonight as my spouse gave me the 'A-OK' (as long as there can be a puffer and a 'tunnel').


Any constructive comments would help- I would hate to seal it, and something aesthetically is not right.....
*Note, I cant wait to add plants!

Totally my fault- I hit the wrong link.

Liveaquaria is what I was referencing, but i misread as I was on my phone. My apologies.

When Im wrong Im wrong-- no one should be nervous to tell me when I am. Our past conversations? Huh? Sorry, didn't make a lasting impression - I dont remember them.
Just trying to be helpful and provide a source.

So the scientific name is Colomesus asellus. Here is a random link google provided:
