Whether it’s a small bowl or a massive tank, there’s nothing quite like a well-kept aquarium to brighten up your home. Here at Petco in Asheville, we want to ensure that you have the supplies you need to keep your fish happy and healthy.

Of course, you can’t have an aquarium without any fish—and a few finned friends are the perfect addition to your home. It is best to purchase fish at your local fish store, so that you can see the fish before you buy them and make sure they are in good health. Petco is an excellent choice if you’re looking for new pets, since we have locations across the country offering dozens of kinds of colorful live fish. Whether you’re looking for a single fish or an entire school, we carry a wide variety of pets you can add to your family.
Our selection of bettas is one of the largest you’ll find anywhere. These beautiful little fish are famous for their bright colors and intricate fins, but they are also an excellent choice for beginning pet parents since they require very little space and maintenance.

- Calico, fantail and feeder goldfish

Invertebrates and Other Creatures
A fish tank can contain more than just fish. Both invertebrates and non-fish vertebrates can be a good addition to your aquatic community. We carry freshwater and saltwater creatures such as anemones, maxima clams, crabs, snails and even frogs.
A live aquarium plant is one of the most popular items to add to a tank, and we have a great selection of plants. Not only do they help filter the water in the tank, they also offer a highly naturalistic environment for your pets to live in. We offer a range of plant speciesas well as substrate, fertilizers, lightingand everything else you need to keep your plants healthy.
If you’re looking for something a little more exotic than a plant, live corals are an excellent option. We carry a range of corals that are great for beginning and expert aquarium keepers in a variety of shapes and sizes. All of our corals are 100% aquacultured.
At Petco, we are strongly committed to protecting marine life, which is why we sell aquacultured organisms. These are creatures that have been raised in aquarium environments instead of being collected from the wild. Over 95% of our aquatic life, including all of our coral and most of our live fish, is raised in captivity, allowing you to enjoy your fish tank without having to worry about impacts on the environment.

Make your tank look great! We offer tank backgrounds and a variety of gravels and substrates that can provide a cohesive look in addition to a wide variety of tank décor. Whether you want to create a sunken ship or Asian landscape, we have the ornaments you need.

Health Benefits of Professional Grooming
Your dog or cat’s certified stylist is another resource that keeps them healthy. Stylists begin every service by checking them from nose to tail with the 7-point pet care check. This helps spot warning signs of any potential health concerns. In some cases, stylists have aided in the early detection of cancer by noticing both gradual and rapid changes in a pet's health. While grooming can never replace routine check-ins with a veterinarian, it can still be life-saving, making stylists an important part of your pet’s routine.
Here are some other health benefits of professional pet grooming:
• Veterinarian-approved safety standards
• 7-Point Care Check to spot physical and behavioral changes
• Discovery of early warning signs of illnesses
• Detection of parasites
• Dietary recommendations
You can learn more about the different services and prices available or if you’re ready, book your dog’s appointment online.

Jason was amazing with all the information he share while we were in the store. He is extremely knowledgable and I hope your company sees the value in him as a resource and treats him appropriately.
Got a last minute Bordatella Vaccine for my fur baby with their VetCo program. I couldn't get in with my regular vet in time to board her and they had one last spot. Staff was very sweet!
My dog Millie went through training with Britney from Puppy 1 through Canine Good Citizen. We both adore Britney. She's so patient, knowledgeable and caring. The training made a huge difference in my dog and my ability to continue training her. I hope Petco (and Asheville) know how lucky they are to have Britney!
