ZooRama Aquarium in the Bronx has some very nice, big pieces of Anubias "Petite" for $10 each. They are really nice-sized rhizomes - with at least 20 leaves, some with 40 or more.

I am sad. That is too far away.

"Big fish in little pond" should be aquastar's slogan.

if anyone is interested i saw what was labeled as a golden nugget pleco out near lindenhurst pet's warehouse. their selection was HUGE. i was pleasantly surprised while walking through there. They had a huge 3 foot white tipped shark I believe in one of their tanks.

I really wanted to buy the pleco but i have no tank space..

Dunno. It's ugly though...LOL. Never been a fan of silver arowanas. I much prefer the asian arowanas, and I'm suprised that being asian owned that aquastar doesn't keep asian arowanas instead.

i wager aquastar either doesnt have the market to either sell or cannot source Asian Arowanas reliably. They certainly dont have the adequate tank space for them.

My dad bought a small arowana for $40 bucks I think from kissena aquarium based on a sales pitch 行運一條龍 if you know what it means, but this thing grows fast.

I thought Asian arowanas were illegal to own in the states. Someone got caught trying to smuggle them in one time. Those things are gorgeous!

SNSD~

Not sure what the law states about asian arowanas but I know for sure that I have seen them at the Chinatown stores (won't name names incase...haha) every so often.
