Does anyone know where I could find Many-Banded Shell Dwellers in Austin? There don't seem to be any on Aquabid, and I've contacted Aquatek, they said it could be months to a year before they have them in stock again. Going to hit up the Aquadome tomorrow but without incredibly high hopes. I'm praying that the Fish Gallery will open soon and will have them available.

If you or someone you know has a colony of these guys and could bear to part with some juvies, I'd gladly pay you retail (or whatever you want, first born child, soul, etc) and come pick them up.

Found them, thank you all for you help. I was able to find three genetically diverse groups and mixed them to ensure varied genetics.

Haha, thank you. The soul is a real offer, but is offered "as-is" with no guarantee as to purity or freedom of manufacturer's defects. If you want the first born child however, you'll have to take an IOU.

Aquatek has them. Ask staff where to find them, they're easy to miss.

There are 14 or so for sale on San Antonio's craigslist (I think that's the right species). He was asking $80 for the lot, including decorations and sand.

Joe here I live in dallas & don't see em here often either if you don't mind sending for fish check out a place called the WETSPOT (.com I think) they usually have at least 3 different shellies & 5 different apistos in stock on any day of the week. Shipping starts at 35 and they fish are usually 6to 9 bucks (shell dwellers) you will be amazed at the fish list this store has every day in stock. They are in Oregon or Washington state. Just a taught...
