Yep, the store is pretty much stocked as usual. You can't believe everything you read online.

Things i thought were worth noting:

about two dozen emperor tetras for $1.50 each
healthy otos $1.75 each
quite a few wild neo shrimp $1 each.

The sale will start in May until he closes. Everything must be gone by the end of june. you'll likely pickup some used tanks and whatever else on display for a song. He doesnt have much along the lines of new filters nor tank stock piles of tanks in inventory but there's loads of other aquarium accessories to pick up before then.

I believe most if not all of them were males. And some had sunken bellies.

So who's in!?

Was there Sunday, I don't know if he has found buyers or it wouldn't make sense to me to sell some of the tanks already. I noticed the 125 G is gone and one in the window is marked sold.

Those emperors are so tiny, I thought they were neons.

The emperors are fry that a customer brought in last Friday. I was there and there must have been forty or so.

Look what I bought from win store . All $40
I calculated it by myself . All them cost $83 without 50% off. I saw many people are looking buy big items , but they do not know they can buy small items with good price
