Default $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

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.
