Hit a few shops up in Queens and LI this morning.
Pets Warehouse in Copiague had some healthy, fat looking Otos for $2.50, nice blue rams (2/$12), Sundadanio axelrodi, Bolivian rams, Sparkling gouramis, Danio erythromicron. They also had quite a few species of rainbowfish. Plant selection wasn't all that great this visit.
Frank's Aquarium has quite a few Boraras in stock (no chilis right now), Microdevario nanus and kubotai, a cool iridescent livebearer ( Knife Livebearer, Alfaro cultratus ), and an incredibly cool small pencilfish, the shining pencilfish, Nannostomus nitidus.
PW Carle Place had some nice Celebes rainbows and a few Angelicus botia.
Monster Aquarium has quite a few CPDs, and the Ember tetras also look nice (they have good color in the store and will likely color up nicely). They are out of Chili rasboras.
