Good Angelfish selection near Tampa or Saint Pete?


I can't find anything other than plain looking angelfish. I really want one of the blue veilfins but would be happy with an all black veilfin with red eyes? I'd also not pay $40 shipping on a $15 fish

Check out TAF II, you will most likely be able to find and local breeder on there.

Oh man I love St. Pete, FL!! We used to go their all the time when I was young. I know for a fact I know that Carol lives in FL. It would be well worth the drive to go and get some from her or at least take a look!!!

We are within the two day ground area for Carol and she is dumping babies to clear her tanks. (IMO) some of the best you'll find. TAFF II

Carol is in Port St. Lucie. Made that all day trip New Years for hand picked fish. Should have saved the gas because she sells only her best.
Other than the plecos the only fish in my baby thread are from Carol.

Thank you very much, I like 'em,,,, a lot
Jump on over to TAFF II and introduce yourself because Carols fish room is much larger than mine, but like mine it's in her home. She does online sales but my guess would be that access in person would require invitation. I'd been posting for some time over on TAFF II when she offered the opportunity to visit.

Not sure if he gets any of the blues in, but West Side in Tampa gets some very nice black lace, altums, marbles, and koi. I bought 3 marbles from him. Its a small shop, but most of his stock is bought from breeders within Florida.
