LOL funny. I went to Fauna maybe twice, beautiful store and really nice livestock. Fish was so so, but as stated, never seen a lot of people there and I'm sure the rent for that place had to be ridiculous! Sorry to hear they closed tho.

Fauna was an incredible store. It's where I bought the components to my first planted tank. Place had a more exotic stock than most zoos. Great staff, too.

You're right though: the rent must have been crazy there. Not sure how they lasted all those years.

Just looked into Fauna and the owner, found a long and informative article about the owner on The Washington Post, seems so crazy.

I recognize that guy. Thankfully, not the person I was thinking of. What a complete nightmare.

I sometimes wish I was in Brooklyn. This is one of those times. I'd like to see what Apisto's they have and what they're going for.

Have you succumbed to the pleasure of Multiple Tank Syndrome? I feel your pain!

@ RWaters I went by Archers today (I'll be going every thurs since my daughter has a class for 2 hrs in the area) and I checked the names and prices for all the Apistos. Apisto Cacatoids $18 Agazzi fire red $25 Agassizi $45pr. Im not familiar with these guys at all, but I tried. I picked up more pygmy cories (since the last ones I got are doing good and a pr of B. coccina.

Taso (owner at Archers) gets in a lot of apistos as of late and can custom order you a large variety of them as well. Besides those Qck mentioned, I've seen mendezi, bitaeniata, borellii, and panduro; most of these species were ~$10 or less if memory serves me correct.

Thanks guys. I've never had apistos before so I wouldn't even know what species to get. Qckwzd - how much were the B. coccina?

$24.99 I currently have them in a 2.5 with a bunch of leaf litter, floating logs, clay pot and sponge filter. Doing great!
