Those are definitely small clowns! When I saw the tag on the tank, I could tell the store is Petland, and wonder where you are from. Then I see you are from Canada. Whereabouts in Canada are you? I live near Saskatoon, and our Petland has similar ridiculous prices. They do have "Half-Price Tuesdays," but the discount only applies to their fish that are under $10. Bummer! Because my store has some beautiful Denisoni Barbs I am interested in, and they charge $58 each for them. At that price, it is a wonder if they ever sell any.
About two weeks ago, I visited one of the other pet stores in the city (locally owned, not a chain) and they as well had some unusually small clowns. They were under 1" for sure. Next time I go, I should ask the owner if they are from the same supplier. I was very tempted to buy them, but that would surely lead to another Large Tank, ad I'm not sure I can afford it at the moment!
thanks for sharing!
Mick, I'm sorry I do not know your friend, but if I ever meet him, I will surely send him your Best Wishes.
RD, with all the "chain-store bashing" we have going on here, I must say whenever I have bought fish from Petland, the water quality was excellent, and the fish were, and are still, very healthy. With that I have been impressed. If the extra money paid ensures the fish come from a top-quality supplier and goes to their excellent care, perhaps it is worth it.
Martin, you know how the saying goes, about how everything is bigger in Texas? I think that should apply to Ontario, too. To compare our prices over here with yours, would just be unfair!
