Did you happen to see if that petsmart sells plants. I heard they sell tissue culture plants in little cups.

Hi everyone, I don't post often, but I too am located in NYC.

Has anyone seen endlers recently?

(Petsmart carries hybrid endlers on occasion, but I've never seen them in their NYC shops. I have only ever seen endlers at Pacific, and usually they look like hybrids too - have been calling Pacific for about 4 weeks but they have yet to get a endler shipment)

If anyone else has seen them at another shop, I'd love to know.

Thanks. Great thread!

Hey Sleepy

I have a friend who has endlers to sell here in Chelsea. They are kept in his low-tech tanks. PM if interested.

Petsmart in soho doesn't have them the last time I checked.

The Petsmart in harlem and in brooklyn do though. Actually, the Petco in union square now carries them as well.

Pearling.....it's way overrated.

I believe the Petsmart chain offers aquatic plants that are grown in plastic cups. These have their roots in water with the leaves emersed. You can just go and pick them up without having to get a net or anything so it's convenient.

I have black bar endlers. I bought them from a reliable source, so they are class P.....never been mixed. I can offer you juvies, although it depends on what you are looking for. I mostly have females, but I do have 3 males that have colored up. Let me know....

Oh....I'm in NJ, but right outside the Lincoln Tunnel. So I'm basically in the city.

Have you tried Win? I've seen endlers there often though I'm not 100% sure if they are pure or hybrid. Looks like Lime Green. He doesn't have a dedicated tank I think, they can be scattered throughout the tanks.

Petsmart in Soho has really nice bathrooms. I can vouch for that.
