susankat Great news, I still need to get over there and check them out.

Tsartetra I am now the proud owner of a true Farlowella (either gracilis or vittata, I believe...) as of yesterday. Petstop in BA was my source--excellent service as they had these guys in store within two weeks after I inquired whether or not they could get them.
Now if they only had a better supply of plants....though their dwarf lilies are gorgeous.
Oh, and they have wonderful Botia striata (zebra loaches) currently in stock--and may be the only area store with them. If I didn't already have some of these guys (along with 4 other species ) I would grab another...

Congrats!

As for the reason for the price, I never doubted it was justified. Good luck!

I'm going to Petsmiths this afternoon and looking forward to it.

Thank you! I will do that--I've never been there.

However, I cannot seem to find a website for them. What are their hours?

Thank you for your time and effort--and please thank her for me as well--however that's over my budget. I'm not faulting her for that though--a breeder needs to get what they can for their effort. Thank you!

I'll keep looking around. There's a new Pet Stop in BA and they have said they may be able to order for me...

susankat By my observation they aren't much for algae eaters. They are more omnivores than anything.
If you are wanting something to help control algae I would go with otos and or bristlenose.
Sturisomas are more of a lazy feeder and don't hit the algae very much. I feed mine earthworm sticks and decap brine shrimp eggs. Spirulina sticks a couple of times a week.

That would be great if you would be willing to find out what she wants for it.
I have no problem going to get it--I live in Coweta, so Wagoner is just 20 minutes or less further down H51 from me.

I take it they are decent controllers of algae on plants/glass? I'm not expecting miracles, as my tank isn't over run, it just has those occasional spots (which are especially hard to get off plants like Anubias).

She's in Wagoner, huh? I live in Coweta (work in Tulsa). A male is actually my preference. Do you know what species it is? I was looking Sturisoma's up in one of my Baensch's Atlases and there are several... I am interested, but would need to wait until payday (we teachers are paid the 20th of each month) to get it.
