I wouldn't be surprise if the fish that the sell on PetCo website come from the same place that LA is using in California. In would be wise for them to leave LA up, or at least hang onto the name, but you really don't know what they're making from it and if in the long run is it worthwhile to keep going.

I didn’t know petco owned liveaquaria. It’s funny because they were one of the first really vouched for coral websites I had seen when I started in 2012. Now there’s so much competition for them. They have to be hurting too

Spoke to a live aquaria rep today and she said they are moving them to the coral propegation facility and will “remain open and will not be affected by the closing of the Wisconsin facility.” Sounds like this is what they have been told but doesn’t sound like they have much faith in this statement. She was super nice and very thankful for my concern and was super appreciative toward me as a customer.

There's a guy on R2R that bought 6 Radions before they figured it out and nixed the coupon code, he saved close to $600!

IMO, Live Aquaria stock has gone downhill for several years now. Even the Diver's Den product is hit or miss lately.
