Good price on ember tetras if they are real Hyphyssobrycon amandae .
I just stopped by the new store on Fresh Pond and Elliot ave. They said they've been open a week , delivery for freshwater fish are on Wednesday, Thursday and sometimes Sundays.
They have about 100 CPDs left for $3.99 each. Other than that , nothing exotic. There were like 3 different types of guppies (red ones were nice I think they had some endler gens) , few different type of mollys , platys , koi swordtails. Good looking african cichlids , some adult angel fish. Half the store is salt water tanks , which looked better stocked then freshwater. I told the guy there is a big market for nano fish(mentioned pygmy corries , chili rasboras) , we'll see what he does about that. Anyways if you are not from area I d give them few more weeks before visiting.

Met up with Gordonrichards, who has AWESOME crypts btw.

Anyways:
Win:
Celebes Rainbows - $2.50
Croaking gourami $3.50
Tandanus (eel tail) catfish: $15
Water hyacinth - not sure on the price
Wild Neos are back in stock: he had a bunch in the harlequin rasbora tank.
Still has plenty of giant plakats.

Pacific:
Nothing really new here. They had Tetraodon miurus puffers for $70 each. There's about 30 dwarf puffers left and they got in a shipment of freshwater eels. The chocolate gouramis looked nice but they need super soft, blackwater conditions. Other than that, I picked up 3 brown kuhlis (which the still have plenty of). Btw, I was talking to one of the guys who worked there. Some guy walked in last Wednesday and bought 50 of the CPDs. $20 for 3... so do the math. That's some baller status right there. Also, if you guys want to request something for their next shipment, let them know by Tuesday. Supposedly they are getting more CPDs and some Chili Rasboras (crossing fingers) next Sunday.

Coral Aquarium in Jackon Heights:
Roseline barbs: $14 each

Saw a royal pleco at 14th st and I am in love.... talk about head with no body... but out of my budget at $35..was about 3.5 inches. Im glad I looked up em because they get too big for my tank. Was that the same one we saw in PetGoods?
hmmmm YES! i occasionally park at the Metropolitan museium of art for free and that's in walking distance.

Yes, Royal Pleco. well known for their tank re-arrangement skills

Hunting for a bulldog pleco ATM... would pick up at petgoods if it isnt available closer.

The usually work something out with people that are repeat customers or buy in bulk. I got 10 CPDs for ~$48 last week, but I shop there almost every week.

@ fistown last night.
emperor plecos for $23.99
- Cherry shrimp; whatever is left in the tank is certainly cherry grade with red spotted patterns and transparency. A few berried.
Fyi, The endlers there were all male.
- Marble fan shrimp are actually bamboo shrimp. Great price and younger than those commonly stocked at Petco.
Black tetras, had the color texture resembling emperor tetras but were different.
They have the color enhanced fluorescent yellow tiger barbs...
Not much else of besides their usual.

Considering the clown pleco but they all seemed a bit pale. Will wait a week to see how they do.

Otos: $1.79 2/$3.50 - very healthy, were eating algae discs in the tank
Clown plecos: $6 2/$11.75
Neon Glo Tiger barbs: $9
Marble fan shrimp: $6 2/$11.50
Large albino tiger barbs: $3 3/$8.50
Baby neons tetras: 10/$7
Cardinal tetras: $1 20/$18
Red cherry shrimp: $3 3/$8.50 - Sakura grade, lots of berried females in the tank. In the same tank with some endlers.

Also, the Petco $1 gallon sale ends tomorrow. The Petco at College Point still has plenty of 20L's available.
