from what it sounds like it will be. and honestly. petco is pretty decent with there saltwater fish. the few times i went there they seem to have at least acceptable clean and dead free tanks. so im not terribly worried about it but its still a cause of a little concern.

Pretty sure Janesville is the closest one. 2 petsmart in Madison. 1 petworld. 1 animart. 1 living art.

This is one mail order opperation buying another. Petco wanted the pet pharma and the exclusive pharma product line from Fosters and Smith. F & S drs are just getting old and time to retire with the dollars. I hope they keep Live Aquaria open as it is one of kind and it makes a ton of money. In fact I hope they just keep the F and S brand opperatoinal as a competetor.

time will tell
