I know its a bit of a drive, but I know some of the Petcos in the Lehigh Valley carry some.
Their price matching policy can also potentially make it worth the drive.

The more you get the better they shoal. I started with 30, then bumped it up to 45. I also noticed after I do a water change and turn AC70 filter off they really school very well. I think they don't like much current in the tank. Just enough to the keep water moving. Same thing with the angels I have in the tank. I have a canister filter running with a spray bar which stays on. The HOB is just for extra filtration, but I don't think the fish appreciate it. I may look into adding another large canister filter on there to replace the HOB.

If you mean small small, then I still have that toms rapids mini. I just got transferred to the Kensington Office of my job. Should be interesting haha I'll hope on 95 and come up one of these days for another swap meet if we can rally the troops. I'm looking for some willow hygro to use as a background plant in my 75 gallon tank. Or maybe siamensis hygro if i got that name right. Just something easy that will blow in the current of the filters. I thought about jungle val but that stuff melting too easy and I don't want to be cleaning it out all the time.

On another note:

I have some stuff I'd like to sell to make some money for larger pieces of driftwood.

Medium size driftwood
HOB power filters
Heaters
55 gallon black aquarium stand with 2 magnetic doors
Other aquarium stuff that I don't feel like typing haha
I wish I lived closer. I really want those corys but i dont think i have the time to go over there from fishtown

Mike Letourneau Lehigh Valley area

70 lbs of pea sized gravel.
A Marineland C220 canister filter (all media included but I have since misplaced the vinyl tubing which can be purchased from a Lowe's/Home Depot for dirt cheap).
A HOB Whisper filter rated for a 55g (I believe - at least that's what I used it on for the longest time).
Driftwood (3 medium size + 1 small size).
1 bag of Onyx Black sand (15 lbs).
Large amount of cotton batting (used as filter media).

Looking for:

Any tank larger than 55g.
Filter socks (100 micron or smaller - clean).
Red mangroves (doesn't matter if they have roots or still propagules).
Gobies (bumblebee and/or dragon).

Of course cash is always an option too.

n25philly My tank in my office is overstocked, and while it is doing beautifully I want to make some changes to the stock I have. I am open to rehoming 1 pearl gourami which I am pretty sure is female, 1 empire goby that I know that is male, and 1 dwarf puffer that I don't know what the sex is. All are in perfect health, I am just looking to make a change. I've never bagged up a fish before, so if you can come to my work in NE philly and get them yourself they are completely free. This weekend would be great, but not necessary. First come first serve.

The second setup is a 20l with ray II light, heater, co2 regulator, bubble counter, in-line atomizer, eheim 2213, glass lily pipes, stand and more.

If you're interested or would like more information and pictures, feel free to PM me. Thanks.
You willing to sell pieces individually? If so, how much for one of the Co2 regulators?
