I bought a panther grouper Sunday at the petco 25% off sale it was about 4" long and looked good but upon arrival to its new home it just stayed hidden in the rocks and would not come out. so when i got home yesterday i found it had passed away:confused:. Everything else in the tank is doing good and the grouper was not beat up or damaged in any way.
I guess im just out that $30 good thing it was on sale but i still hate to lose one that hasen't happend in a long time.:mad:

I think you are better off without him, if that makes you feel any better...that fish gets about three foot long and ugly! Too bad, too, they are so cute as juvies! :banghead:

Yeah I went through the same thing with petco, that's their policy and it's clearly printed on the receipt. I had purchased 2 chromis from their store and had them placed in QT, woke up the very next day and both were dead. I called and tried to get something out of the deal but they shot me down and said look at your receipt.

Just a note to anyone buying saltwater fish at the triangle petco in raleigh
The kid there looking after that stuff is really good about putting the date they get the fish into the store on the tag on the front of the tank.
Sometimes you have to pop them out to see it but it gives you a good idea how long a fish has been there and how its doing.
The panther i got had just come in and i new better but it was just one of those impulse buys:blob:
Not really any fault of petco's just the hazzards of the trade.
