WTB - CRS and CBS near Philly

Looking for some CRS, CBS, and possibly OEBT or regular tigers as well.

I'm right outside of Philadelphia, please pm me if you're in the area and have some for sale! Thanks.

Nice drive to see her fish room but why not have it shipped? She is a great shipper.

I'd say that first there is nothing like an in person visit to a LFS or breeder.

Second, it's winter, and even the best of shipping can have problems in these temps.

I'm sure you'd enjoy it very much. Never been there myself but I would probably be like a kid in a candy store and much poorer leaving with a load of livestock

Tank: 20 gallons, 62 watts t5, DIY CO2

Unemployed, poor, and still living off the parents.
