The Petland on 23rd St has a tank marked "99 cents". There are 5 otos in there. They look pretty healthy.

Also he told me his distributors have been falling off the map so he's trying new ones out, which is why he often get exotic stock. He had some very interesting dwarf shrimp in his cray fish tank for $1.50 each. They were clear in his tanks but had a green/bluish tint when i brought them home.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!
Were the shrimp like blue/green rilis? Have any pictures?

More like wild neos, not rilis. Pretty though. For a buck fifty, not a bad deal. They are mostly clear with some color tint on their shell and some black stripes like a tiger shrimp but much thinner. I didn't notice them until I walked over to the cardinal tank, directlY right of the entrance. They live with the creasy in the adjacent tank.

He's got cherries in his sakura tank. all the higher grades have been plucked over the past several months.

Just came back from Win and bought 12 of their otos. They all look really healthy and big. They still have a lot left.

There was also a tank full of these smaller blue rainbowfish. I can't remember what they're called but they look really nice.

I love that store. They always have such great prices.

Practically every Petland carries 3" Pearl gouramis for $6.99. I can't vouch for their health, though. It's hard to find ANY healthy gouramis these days.

I saw some in Kings Aquarium in Bensonhurst on 18thave. They were pretty big. But I'm not sure how to sex them.

~2" amano shrimp (labeled as algae shrimp)- $2.50
