Nerite snails Philly area

I was wondering if there are any LFS in the Philly area that carry nerites. The only one that I know of is The Aquarium Center in Clementon. That is about a 45 minute drive (assuming I get good I95 traffic) Plus tolls

Petco in Ardmore PA has some. Thats the only place I know of.

They have SAE's, Amano Shrimp, and Pencilfish too!

Yeah I've seen them in aquarium center recently. I saw some at the petco in Andorra a while back. Where are you located? I'd call and ask them

I asked a couple of times, and they finally got some zebra and olives.

There is a place called Delaware Premium Aquatics that has nerites, CRS's, and RCS's. The shrimps are hit or miss in terms of having it in stock, so I would call ahead. They are ~1 hour south of Philly, literally straight show down 95, no tolls. I've been to this place twice in the last week since I work in New Castle. They have a lot of selection and tanks.
