I did not pay attention to the price, it was probably 4.99. The size was about 1.5 inches.

There were a couple cardinals for 1.99 at Pacific, although I did not look particularly carefully at them to see how large or healthy they looked.

Pacific has lampeye killies currently.
They must have dropped the price , it used to be $169 for the pair.

Ouch..out of my price range since I want a big school. Cardinal tetras are $1 at Wins.

Win still has 3 or 4 EBRs, but now their tails are being munched on by a male betta in their tank. They also have a lot of large healthy looking otos. Pacific has Dario dario for $5.99 or 3 for 11.98. They appear to be all males & are not looking very happy to be in a bare tank. Hey, all of you in N.E. Queens: How about more detailed updates of the stock at Fishtown. I'm in southern Brooklyn, carless & can only rarely get out there. I'm sure other users of this thread will also appreciate it.

Saw that Ista disposable CO2 system at a Petco today, $50 for the set (I think?), $10 each 45g cartridge. Not that any of us would use it I guess, but I just thought it was cute that they stock this stuff. The bookcase aquarium was also dropped to $34 or something.

Default Seiryu stones?

Does anyone know if any of the local stores carry Seiryu stones? I don't have a car so I can only go where they have a subway line.
