Would you guys mind checking if Frank has any more Barbus hulstaerti/Butterfly barbs? And if he does, can you give me a text alert

I'm pretty sure he's out of them by now, but I wanted to be sure because they're hard as hell to source.

Oh man.. I want to go. I'm coming back into the hobby and I want to explore fish stores

If anyone sees Peacock Gudgeons, Pygmy or Hasbrosus cories, or Norman's Lampeye Killis PLEASE let me know! I don't want to risk shipping them in this cold weather. I know I'm from jersey, but I can travel to the brooklyn, manhattan, or maybe even queens just to pick them up. For me, going to Brooklyn and Manhattan is a shorter commute than for me to go the stores in northern NJ.

Plus I want some plants, so I may even buy some off of you when I pick up the fish

If someone could keep an eye out for me, I would greatly appreciate it!!
Please PM me if you want to help me so I can keep in contact with you

Then if you can swing by and pickup by 8:15, you wouldn't have to park persay but just stop, load up and go.

I am type of person that does not know the streets. I only know what is around the area. There is a PC richard and Son, targets, and party City.

We can pick a store and just wait at front? I believe PC Richard and Son have some parking at the side?

Not so sure.



Please forgive me for my grammar mistakes!

Those in Brooklyn should plan to arrive at the location below 8:00. (8:15 at the latest)

Below is a Google map AND street view so all should be clear where to go and what the area looks like.

You're from NJ, there are some great lfs's there. The Pet Shanty is great for fish and plants, Rt. 22, Absolutely FIsh which is near or in Clifton, Rt. 4 Aquarium, etc.etc. I'm sure someone else can chime in the one's I left out.

Is this LFS Tour still open for more people? If so I'd love to come out. I live out on the island I'm about 15min from pets warehouse in carl place so I could just meet you all there.
I may not be able to go out as far as coram but would still like to join in.

Great looks like I'll be meeting you all at pets warehouse at 10am.

I'm mainly in the market for more Bosemahni Rainbows, but I'm open to a lot of other options. I wouldn't mind a few more pygmy corries as well. I'm open to any and all suggestions as far as stocking. Photos of my tank can be found in my sig feel free to let me know your thoughts it's only been setup about 6 - 7 weeks and I'm looking for some feed back.
