He was in a show tank eating some feeders. I thought he was really cool.

That's interesting that he was at Petco. Usually you see fish like that at an independent lfs, not a chain store...the statement below is false
the statement above is true
which one is true?
Got a small tank? Check out Fishalicious' small fish list! http://fishaliciousfish.blogspot.com...-for-nano.html
Got a big fish you just can't handle? Check out Monster Fish Rescue! http://www.monsterfishrescue.com/

They are. But He does look like a hybrid.
And the tank looks a bit smal for him..Do as I say. Not as I do.

He was probably an adoption! My Petco takes anyfish you bring in. They usually put them back in their tanks and resell them. I'm sure (unless it's a really nice petco) that they will sell him back to someone.30g:: Planted: 1 SAE, 1 Bristlenose Pleco, 5 Guppies, 3 Platys, 1 zebra danio, 9 Rasboras
2.5g: 1 Male Betta

I agree that looks like a hybrid.55 gallon planted community
30 gallon planted community
10 gallon planted wild type guppies and cherry shrimp

Never really understood the point in selling fish that can reach 4-6' .. It's just really not needed. Most people who buy fish, and im saying this from own experience starting out, buy fish without researching.. Then one day that cute little Irridecent shark turns out not to be so little within a few months, to a year, to years and need a tank that can comfortably hold it.. I say do away with big fish that is on display, and perhaps make it an option to special order them. But get some information from the customer first to make sure.
