Like kubalik said, fishtown allows you to pick your fish in the tank, never been to a store that disallow. I have been there several times with different guys working in the store. There is no point shopping in there if you are not allowed to pick your fish unless you are buying a neons.

Ok, now when we say picking, are we talking about netting our own fish or are looking into the container and then saying, " No I don't want that one, get me another one"

To clarify, I've never been allowed to pick up a net and get my own fish.

Not netting, I believe only Win does. I think Pacific do also as I saw someone net their fish before.

also, I went to the Petland Discounts in Williamsburg today. It had some of the healthiest stock I've ever seen in a Petland. Worth a look, five blocks from the Flushing Ave station.

I spotted them at Pacific today, but didn't get a good look at the price. 123 should still have them too.

Any killies besides the aplochelius lineatus aka golden wonder?

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