I stopped by Petco today (on Hull St near Woodlake) on my lunchbreak to get some root tabs and noticed they had some unusual species (esp for Petco!). They had a single Jardini arowana, African butterfly fish, and tiger shovelnose catfish. They didn't seem to be the best candidates for the standard home aquarium (!) but I thought I'd pass this along if anyone had been looking for these.

I wonder if someone turned some fish in to them.

Yeah, that Petco will take in "unwanteds" but I hope not otherwise they are making a huge profit on someone else's mistake. The arowana was $100!

Petco can order those fish anytime. They shouldn't be selling those fish unless they are making sure the buyers are fully aware of their full grown size and able to care for them.

Ahhh....you used the word "should" and Petco in the same sentence.  But we all know how that goes.
