Looking for True Siamese Algae Eaters in NYC/Westchester area


This is my first posting. I have a 29 gallon planted tank with 96 watts of lighting. When I first got the tank I had poor lighting. Since I've upgraded I started getting BBA. I have a pleco, Otos, Corys, and glass shrimp. I just learned that only SAE will eat BBA. So where in the NYC/Westchester county area can I find them?

Yea, Check monster aquarium in flushing. Pacific has them often too. American Flagfish will also eat BBA but they are harder to find. I got a pair from That fish place in Lancaster PA

Hey Guys

Thanks for the help. I went to Monster Fish Inc today. It was 30 mins out of the way, but it was well worth it. I picked up 3 SAEs, some cherry and Amano shrimp and some more plants. Really liked the place. I will be back.

Thanks again.
