good question.. I was there the other day, and I saw people come down from it, but they were with one of the owners.
BTW.. I forgot to mention that Win Trop has Cherries again. I actually picked some up on wednesday.. Picked up 2 berried and one male to hopefuly jumpstart coloney in a new 10 Gal tank that I have at work.
Back to the OP's question.. I saw some balloon rams in Royal also. Didn't note the prices, but I thought they looked kinda funny.
I also stopped by King's Aquarium on 18th Ave and 70th Street. THey opened up about 6 - 9 monthes ago. They have 1/2 the store for Salt and 1/2 for fresh. They do not seem to have too big of a selection of either, but their stock looked sorta healthy. I also stopped by the one on 7th Ave and 59th street yesterday, and mostly they stock only different types of Flower Horns, and some sorta silver carp looking fishes that were going for a couple of hundred each also.
