Any time man, you know that. M. Auriantica are sweet! They are also your best bet at finding cb frogs. They breed rather prolifically. That said, have her look at Phyllobates Terribillis 'yellow' or 'orange'. Very similar frogs, and much easier to come by.

KingPlakat Anyone wanna buy some pinoy angelfish? About silver dollar body size, nice blues and greens in their body and fins. $20 each or 3 for $50. Looking to thin the herd (14 total). Some will be breeding in the next couple months.

Are you looking for a particular species? I know plenty of folks who breed darts. Mantella are a bit more tricky to get captive bred. But you are in luck, because spring is the season when the mantellas are ready for sale. Unfortunately, they don't breed as readily as dart do. Check out understoryenterprises.com for mantellas. If any of mine were breeding yet, I would definitely hook you up. But I have a few months to go on some species and another year or so on the others.

midlife_hobbyist I don't recall seeing any shrimps but I'm not saying there weren't any.......Their plants always look good. Thought their prices weren't as high as I had thought they would be...(does that make sense?)

They had pygmy cories - I picked up a few.
I got the last few assassin snails...

n25philly Aquarium center is nice and even the worst of the employees there are helpful. They do sell shrimp there, but what they actually have can really vary so I'd say it's worth contacting them ahead of time if you want something specific. I just wished they were closer to me as with traffic it can take around an hour each way.

Fishies_in_Philly Are they stocking shrimp over at aquarium center?

midlife_hobbyist I was at Aquarium Center 2 weeks ago on a Sunday an hour before closing..
you know--weekend high school kids working, busiest days of the week - lots of customers - little time to do maintenance


The tanks were incredibly clean and looked great!!

Haven't been to the reef since the Holidays...
