Yea, I was there other week and sadly its gone. The website is still up but the store is no more. I did not see the sign that they moved so I assume out of business.

You mean New World Aquarium? They closed long ago (see post 1057 on page 71)! Their prices were pretty high but they often had fish you couldn't find elsewhere in NYC. I still regret not buying the Nanochromis transvestitus they had a few years back. The store used to be in the lower part of Manhattan (I think in or near Greenwich Village), I had just started going there when they moved to Midtown. At least we still have Pacific and Win.

Went to aquastar/win/123aquarium....
No shrimp, no plants except basic java moss at 123, nothing exotic at least this week. High Temps are likely affecting their import of new stock.

Flowerhorns at aqua star , win, and 123. A new trend perhaps?

Giant ottos at win thinning out. Get them while they last. Ton of baby angels as well for $3 ea.

Assassin snails in petco union square for 3 dollars. Also saw some "whisker shrimp" at 99 cents. They look like giant ghost shrimp.

Pacific said they would be stocking Blue Velvet shrimp in a few weeks. They said they got Bumble Bee shrimp, but I only saw a peewee in the tank

I always see you guys talking about Pacific on here. I have to head down and check it out one day. If you ever get up here to Westchester check out Exotic Pets, on Central Park Av., in Yonkers (a few blocks up from the Bronx). The owner's kind of a dick, but if you go on the weekend the guys are pretty good. They get a lot of good stuff and its a big place. Take a roadtrip one day and check it out.
