ABN at Petco?!

I just got back from my local Petco, and despite completely resisting the $1 per gallon sale, I did come home with two albino bristlenose plecos! The guy there said they were a new item and that they were being added to the regular lineup. I don't think I've ever seen them in a local shop, and for $4.99 each I couldn't resist. Just thought I'd share the info in case anyone else was looking for some!

I was super surprised! The guy had to go look up the price because they weren't labeled, and I thought for sure he would come back and quote some crazy price.

It seems like Petco is starting to get a larger list of aquatic species.

A Petco store by me had a royal pleco for sale for around 40 bucks. I wonder if they could get in plecos that stay under 5 inches.
