omg! yes!! i have the marina brand!! works great! it starts the first time you fill it up. it has a gravel guard so u dont accidently suck up the rock. it also has a non kinking hose which is my favorite part b/c i was all the time warping the usual plastic tubing... and last but not least it comes with a bucket clip that also controls the flow... pretty kool... check it out!
I believe there are three in the city here. They just recently opened a new stand alone store close to my house. The staff there really know their stuff. I love going there! Last time we went one of the employees brought out a snake for someone to look at. I am terrified of snakes! My son on the other hand was on that thing like a fat kid on a Smartie! (Okay that was a little off side. I'm sorry!) The guy was really good with all the questions people were asking. He obviously had a love for reptiles! They have a beautiful Jack Dempsey there that I have been admiring for some time. He's not for sale though.
I never heard of Petland before I came to this forum. Im in the baltimore, MD area, and I never seen one or heard of one. I never had a python, I just use a straight up siphon on my tanks. Python is the way to go though. A little pricey, but they are great!
Our Petland here used to be pretty crappy for fish but they were the only game in town. I stopped shopping there for a long time. Everything was really over priced! The competition's prices were much cheaper. Then all of the sudden all the other chains went to hell and Petland cleaned up its act. Now they have knowledgable staff and great prices!
I'll have to check out the python if I ever get a chance to get to the LPS!
