So I emailed Frank. Ever since Hurricane Sandy, he's been working non-stop. He should learn by tonight when he'll be available.

Anyways, he wants to know what livestock everyone is interested to see if he has them in stock.

It's easier if you had asked him what he had in stock.

Never thought about that. He does have a ton of stuff available on his site though.

He admitted that his website isnt always updated. e.g. the prices on the dwarf cories were more expensive than what he was actually selling.

I actually want white cloud mountain minnows - regular ones - if we're going Saturday or Sunday (can't make it Friday). I don't ever see healthy ones in stock and I *think* I can reboot the 20 gallon long by then. They would probably like more plants, but I can steal some from the other tanks.

it might be a more efficient dialogue to directly inquire what is in stock.

His forum occasionally lists upcoming shipments, at least it did in the past.

@emily, It would be a great opportunity to exercise any vacation time you had left or call the proverbial sicky for the day... just saying

i am interested in white cloud minnows as well and looking for sub $2 each pricing. Pet Goods in paramus had them for $2 each, all with round bellies. Healthy specimens indeed.

I saw and figured id hound them again

The other shops they had listed are actually right by my work which is great if they venture that far.

I will be driving from Bronx to East patchogue (as i do everyday for school) so i'm interested no matter where it is, but i am not a fan of driving deep in queens or brooklyn. (i get lost easily in urban environments) lol

Update from Frank:
His stocklist is upto date for the most part. He's getting more nano fish on the 25th. He has C. hasborus in stock and he should be getting some C. pygmaeus. He's also getting in some thai micro crabs. Frank was wondering which danios you guys would be interested in.

He's not sure when he'll be off but he should let me know soon.
