Ever walked into a pet store and found a fish that you just can't walk away from? Well I have done this today!

While looking threw a lfs I found freshwater bumble bee gobies in a tank with mollies. The tank had no labeling for the price so I asked the manager the cost. She said 1.99 so I bought two. Very cute looking fish and I'm glad I bought them! They are acclimating now so I will post pics soon.

Anyone else have these fun little guys?!

Never had bumble bee gobies, but once my dad walked into the pet store and there was about a 10" common pleco in a 10 gallon at the store. Someone had brought him there because he had gotten too big for their tank. He brought him home and put him in our 130 gallon

Awesome! I think these must have been babies or brought in by a customer because they had no idea how much to sell them for!
