Just Bought A Black Ice Clown at Petco for $35!!

I went to petco just for laughs and wound up almost crapping my pants. I was in there looking around when I read a price tag that said " semi-Picasso" I was kind of interested because well any designer clown is eye candy to me. When I looked into the tank instead of seeing semi-picasso clowns I only saw one clown a black ice!! Mortified I again looked at the price tag $69.99........ but with pet

I even told one of the employees of my good fortune and he's like "Yea sometimes we get in some weird clowns from some place Aurora" I said " Do you mean ORA?" Hes like "Yea that's sounds more like it. Why have heard of them?"
I almost cried...... I couldn't believe my ears. I even looked it up and sometimes when ORA is overstocked they'll sell to petco. Moral of the story is get of your [moderator edit] go to petco and search for typos.

Wow how lucky! Last time I went to a petco, the saltwater section gave me a heart attack!
Hmm now I am curious to see if other Petco locations (perhaps in the city) have a better set-up

I usually don't even go to petco but they are having a sale on 4 oz. PE Mysis cube packs like 3 packs for $18 but as soon as I saw that fish I completely forgot about the sale and got him back home. Here are a few more pics sorry about the cloudy water just got done feeding PE. He's healthy has no signs of ich or anything for that matter he's been at Petco for less than a week. I especially love how his pattern is the same on both sides.
