Local SAEs cheap

Hey guys,
If any of you are interested I found that Austin Aquariums has some true SAEs in stock for $4 per. This is a much better price that the $15 that AquaTek was asking last time they had them.

The only bad part is that from what I could tell they are mixed in with Flying Foxes and the lady that helped me didnt seem to know anything about telling the difference between them.

They also gave me all of the MTS that I wanted.

BTW, you might also want to try River City. I noticed several today, and they are also about $4-$5 each.

I'm not too familar with your area but are you serious that some stores are charging $15 USD / SAE? that's pretty insane (but comparing azn prices on these to my LFS would probably be crazy too.. considering shipping costs)

bigcheze is correct on the prices for SAEs. It is difficult to find them inexpensively around here sometimes.
