$1 Cardinal Tetras
 
I found $1 2cm Cardinal Tetras and $1.50 Otocinclus in Chinatown;
Win Tropical Aquariums, 169 Mott Avenue near Broome St.
When I came, he had hundreds of them, and they all acclimated
perfectly once I got them home, so he kept them in good shape.
this is a small family store, and they stock many plant friendly fish.
the owner speaks perfect English, so you can plan your trip by
checking with him first over the phone at; 212.343.2875
this is probably a great guy to deal with when you are looking
to buy a large school of tetras, barbs, rasboras, whatever :proud:

update: 4 of 12 fish had a visible fin rot decease when I got them home.
6 died within a week. I must have bought them when he just got delivery
and they had not had time to die in the LPS own tank.
oh well... just thought people should know.

i bought cardinals from them before and i had no issues. i guess it can be a hit or miss. i've never had any issues with his fish, but i'm sure any LFS will have fin rot/ich issues.

btw, his store doesn't have much of a selection of plants and his RCS supply is running thin. anyone know of another place within Manhattan to go to?

I got my Cardinals from Robert(owner of Wins) for 75 cents each. He's a good guy and a local store worth supporting. For RCS, the only place I've found them was Pacific on Delancy(4.99 a shrimp). I get my rcs either from aquabids or good folks in this forum.

hope it helps
