dwarf puffers in indy?

Anybody know where I can get dwarf puffers in Indianapolis? I'd rather not pay for shipping to order them online.

I have found them at Uncle Bills on the southside before. I'd just call around and see before you go driving anywhere. The Reef might have them as well.

If I wanted a top-quality hard to find fish in Indy, I'd ask RMC. Stand up guy, site sponsor, all around good stuff. He's active in the Circle City Aquarium Club as well.

Check out Pet Island on US 40 - he bought it last year and really turned it around.

Everyone seems normal... until you get to know them.

I was at Petsmart out in Plainsfield last night, they didn't have any. It's good to know they have them periodically though. I'll check out those other suggestions too. Thanks!

I can't remember if the Uncle Bill's in fishers has any or not, but they're pretty cool about trying to special order stuff if i want it.

Man! All the best stores close. And the ones that actually have a good selection have the most horrible people working in there. I used to stop into a supplier on the east side. Can't remember the name. Two businesses shared one building. One was a guy who could get you any cichlid you could name. Awesome guy.

not trying to bump this up a lot, but i saw some at the walmart in greenwood over the weekend. they seem to keep their fish okayish, except for things like 20 african cichlids in a 5-ish gallon tank with no rocks or anything, five 4-inch-ish oscars in the same situation, and a bunch of "dragonfish" gasping for air in another five-ish gallon. normal pet store stuff like that... also they had like 20 dwarf puffers in one of those? i thought they were REALLY aggressive, but i saw no aggression in either the african cichlid tank or the puffer tank... but yeah. they have them! i don't remember the price, though.
