LFS that sells SAE in KC area?

Hello fellow Kansans, are any of you in the KC area (or close) and know of a LFS that sells Siamese algae eaters? I live in Topeka and haven't been able to find anything except the standard Chinese algae eater, and it's cold enough that I'm afraid the little guys might freeze if I order them online... Thanks!

Mission Pet Mart on Johnson & Metcalf, and Pet Stop on Nieman & Shawnee Mission Parkway have both had true SAEs before.

Well, went to both this weekend and no love. :-/ They definitely have a better selection than any of the places in Topeka, but nary an SAE to be found. Thanks for suggesting them though, I will definitely go back whenever I am in the area!

You may try Aquariums Etc, in Kansas City, KS. I have purchased them there before. I don't know about current stock. With your long drive, you may want to call first.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm over in the KC area monthly at least, so I'll just take a detour next time I'm close and stop by there. Even if they don't have what I'm looking for I will still enjoy browsing lol!

If you haven't found them, you should check out Aquariums Etc. in Kansas City, KS. I just bought one. SAEs are true to their name, it's very thorough at cleaning between the leaves and rocks. It does an okay job on the glass, but I have snails and Ottos for that.
