I just came back from a long weekend out of town. My wife and I went to several fish places and we've noticed a pattern. The nice privately owned shops all have the micro-loaches and the big name retailers (Petsmart,Petco,etc...) all have the big 3 inch plus loach monsters! What's up with that? Not only that, but the micro loaches were all $10+, where the big boys are $5 to $7. I understand basic economics enough to get the cost situation, but what's up with the size?
