I also go to "A Place for Pets" in Burien.
Then there is "Pet-Pourri" in Everette
And Sierra Pet & Fish in Renton
Still need to go to Fishaholics.
Pet-pourri is my normal stomping ground, you wouldn't happen to be a Member of GSAS would you?!

I started getting into the aquarium hobby after their last meeting. I read on their website that they do different kinds of fish events during every meeting, so I might go to attend some meetings starting in Sept. I added them on Facebook, and seems like they have a picnic coming up. Are you part of GSAS?

$99 holy cow! Amazing little fish but I don't know if I could part with that much for one fish.

They're expensively rare and can live 10+ years, so maybe $70 (plus tax) is worth it. The people who has owned these guys absolutely loved them, but these people are also puffer lovers lol.

The only thing stopping me from buying is my wife

That makes it a little different then, if a fish is going to live that long I could justify the cost. Can they live in fresh or do they need to be converted to brackish? Would a 20L -29 gallon be enough for one?

They are pure freshwater fish. I visited the Fish Store today and saw the little guy. He was less than 2 inches. 29gal is enough for one puffer.


Edit: This is what they look like as a full adult. I thought he was $70, but instead he was $80. I'm going to Portland to find one for $65 without tax.
