    It's my understanding that they come from mass breeders (which you may be referring to as pet farms).

    I know the Petco's in addition to many other LFS in my area deal with SunPet (which is a mass breeder also). I've taken the liberty to link their website below so you can enter you zip to find out if your area Petco is also dealing through them.

    I think it's funny that they list Swordtails as egg layers.

    They have a pet store not far from me listed. I've never heard of it before. I'm going to have to go and check it out. Might be a good place for some different fishies. :)

    Yea. I may investigate all 12 of the pet stores they list as close to me .... One of them they list is a western store... I was there less than a week ago, and there are no pet related items except for horse feeds and saddles.
