Some of them were nice looking but they weren't worth the $15-$25 they were asking for each betta. Win has better quality bettas IMO. There were some salamander giants and some dragonscales. Also, they had no female plakats. The owner wasn't there when I went. He seems to be bouncing between 3 store locations in the Bronx and Queens (they just opened an Elmhurst location) according to the guy working the register, so I'll see if I can catch him tomorrow evening.

Anyways, here's the prices I found:
Large veiltail angels - $29 2/$50
Red-cap angels - $28 2/$50
Marble veil angels $16 2/$30
Tuxedo angels $16 2/$30
Platinum angels $13 2/$25
Fundulopanchax gardneri nigerianus - $25 for a M/F pair
Lace java fern - $7 3/$20 (lots of leaves per rhizome)

Apparently it's on Northern Blvd west of the Van Wyck. I'll double check again today.

I happen to be in westbury today to do some shopping, and on old country rd I see village aquariums. So while my fily was shopping I drive over there to take a look. Their fish stock was mostly salt water, and few fresh. The problem was that there was not a great selection of fresh and most tanks have dead fish in them. Now for the good part. I noticed that most if their tAnks were deep blue tanks, so I went. Further into the shop an they had the 12", 10" and I guess 6" cubes. I saw the 12" cube in fishtow for $50, but they wanted $36. I picked one up right away. They also have many of the solar t5 and led lights

Keep me in the loop for what LED you pick up. Im still debating if I am going with the 12" fugeray or some other LED. Right now I still don't know how I'm going to setup my tank yet, so it's a CFL desklamp for the time being.

I was just at Win yesterday. Nothing new. They still have a tank full of very healthy, lively, Otto cats though.

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

Sad news for us Win will be closing at the end of June! The owners are retiring, which is great for them but makes me sad. I just found out today that my mom is friends (both went to Stuyvesant) with their daughter's husband. I will miss Win a lot.

Looking for free easy trimmings. (Pennywort, moss, terrestrial, aquatic, emersed, etc) So PM me maybe.
