full grown fish at petsmart

i just checked out the petsmart on the other side of town and holy cow did they have some massive fish. they had red fin tinfoil barbs and tiger barbs at what i think was full grown. they had other fish that were quite big too. don't remember what else there was, but i didn't really get how massive some of the fish get. 2 inches long on a roundish fish is HUGE!.

they actually had some impressive fish, i think i will be going there when i am ready for more fish.

They sure do. I've been there countless times and I always see red tinfoil barbs and bala sharks that are over a foot-long.

Occupied Tanks;
1 ten gallon tank
1 five gallon tank


empty;
a few jars

that's right! huge bala sharks too. i was kind of hoping they'd have big clown loaches, but those were all small.

Yep, I'd have Clown Loaches if we had any extra ten gallon+ tanks. My mom is seriousy in love with Bala sharks, African Cichlids and pretty much most big fish xD

You wouldn't want a clown loach in anything less than a 29g, and even that's small. Usually 55+, hopefully 70 or 90. They can get to be near a foot long, occasionally if everything is perfect - a foot and a half.
