DavidZ Monster had some Apistos, nice looking gold rams long fins, not too much on the plant side
They are having 2 for one price on discus, but given the high prices they come out the same as buying from Kenny or the other guys.

Could only imagine the prices of their fish. Just the location scares me

Yes, it really has. For example, your last post to this thread was on 9/12/2014!!

But seriously, I think many of the people that used to post here are now using Facebook.

I spoke to one of the guys that works there during the week a while back and he said they import them from a European source. So they can be something of a feast or famine thing. But honestly, it's the height of summer and most shops can look a little empty. They should have them again in a few weeks at the very least. It's the only pace I've seen that offers them as individuals.

elwray Hey all, just moved to the area (living in Jersey City/working in Hoboken). Unfortunately, lost one of my cacatuoides in the move

Anyone know where I can find a single male apistogramma cacatuoides "orange flash" locally? I tried Fish Hut (they usually have a great selection) but no luck.

Also, what are the must-see shops in NYC? I keep seeing Pacific on Delancey pop up on recommendations, anywhere else I should check out?

Carribean hasn't had them since that 4 for 10 deal that I slept on lol. Was just there Saturday.

coachc12 Anybody know where I can get cpd's/galaxy rasboras besides Absolutely Fish? They want $9 a pop for cpd's and I am not willing to pay that.

Mr. Limpet Took a trip out to Shark Aquarium in Hillside NJ to pick up some Dicrossus maculatus. I'd never been there before & I was very impressed by the selection & prices. The D. maculatus turned out to be D. filamentosus, which I couldn't use, but they had both sexes, looked very healthy & were $6.99 ea. Other interesting species were 8-banded barbs, nice fat espei rasboras, Anomalochromis thomasi at 3 for $12.00 & male & female wild type dwarf gouramis for $3.99 ea. They also had several species of Apistogramma. I picked up a trio of Apistogramma panduro for $15.00, so my trip wasn't a complete waste of time!

If anyone on this forum visits Fishtown USA in Queens on a regular basis, periodic updates of their stock would be greatly appreciated.

FYI - you can call the shop to get that information.
