Looking for nerites in NYC/LI

Anyone knows of a LFS that sells nerites, or have one or two locally that they want to get rid of? Given how few I want, shipping just doesnt make sense.

I've seen Olives occasionally at Royal Aqua in Brooklyn (8th ave by 65th st).

I think New World Aquarium on 38th street has or can get'em

The grass isn't always greener in the other tank.

Would you mind messaging me if/when you do find the nerites? I've been wanting to get a few myself.

It kinda amazes me that Nerites are that hard to come by here. There's gotta be like a hundred LFS in NYC.

Ditto on that. In one of my frequent stock checks at Pacific Aquarium, they had told me that no one has even asked fr them before which isn't to say they can't get them in stock somehow. I'll be stopping in there tomorrow and bug em about it again

Oh, on a side note, Chi, the plant guy should be in tomorrow..

Knowing them, they'll probably try to sell Olives at $5.

Did they have ANYTHING good in there recently? I stop by every so often, but it's so hard to find parking around there, I haven't been there in a while.

Last time I pulled them out of the tanks, I found nine of them. I've had 2 individuals who are interested. As a courtesy to FrostyNYC the original author, I'll give him/her a few days to reply.
