Snuggies for Fish Make Their Debut at PETCO

Banking on the runaway success of the Snuggie wearable blanket and the Snuggie for Dogs (available on petco.com) PETCO will soon be the exclusive carrier of the Snuggie for Fish.

This exciting product was designed with fish anatomy and comfort in mind. There are cutouts in the back and top to accommodate the dorsal and pectoral fins.

The Fish Snuggie is ideal for mixed freshwater community tanks where the temperature requirements can vary from fish to fish. For example, Tetras prefer a water temperature between 72 and 82 degrees while Goldfish prefer it cooler. By dressing all your Tetras in Fish Snuggies, you can maintain a lower overall temperature without upsetting your cool water-loving Goldfish.

Fish Snuggies are more than just practical, they’re also stylish.

“Pet fashion has been the exclusive domain of dogs and cats for too long,” said Matt Hickerson, Associate Merchandise Manager Aquatic Supplies. “Fish can be fabulous too.”

Initially, the Fish Snuggie will only be available in Blazin’ Blue. However, PETCO plans to expand to other colors and styles as demand for this unique product inevitabaly increases.

Are Snuggies for other species on the horizon?

No one in PETCO’s merchandising department was willing to comment, but according to a confidential source, Snake Snuggies are not far off. According to the anonymous tipster, production will be easy since “they’re basically just blue tube socks.”
