Would appreciate any lookouts for dwarf puffers.

Cardinals are wild caught and always have a chance of getting a super stressed batch. I have had problems like that to. They get moved so much before they land in the store. Usually the trip to a new place does them in. Same experience I've had.

Does Monster aquarium usually have rummy nose and how's their selection of driftwood and pricing?

Drove past there a few days ago- looks like only parking is garage across the street?

They usually have rummys. I have 21 in my tank from monster. They have a nice selection of driftwood too. I can't speak to their pricing.

Parking is free for 3 hours in the mall across the street. Sometimes I just park illegally in front.

I bought a 3" golden discus from monster. He's doing great. Love that store. VERY clean.

never really looked for them, but does Union Sq Petco have more than one kind of Nerite snail?? It's been going on 3 months and the diatoms are not subsiding

Why don't you just call Petco and ask when they'll be on sale. They may know or be able to give you a better idea than we can. But I don't think it will be for $1. I don't think I've ever seen them for sale anywhere for $1.
