Question

Where can I get Zebra Loaches?


Has anyone acquired this specimen in their local fish store and in the US? I have checked Petsmart, Petland, and Petco. So does anyone know any fish stores that hold and sell these fish? I am willing to buy some from you guys if your willing to sell them soon. Thanks!

My LFS has them, but thats all the way in NWI. Your going to have to check with your LFS, not a chain store.

Actually, what is the difference between a local fish store and a chain store? I never thought there was a difference.

I bough mine locally from a fish store (not a chain). A chain store is a large chain that operates nationally. There are also some smaller chains that are regional. Then there are stores that are independently owned that generally have one or a handful of locations; this is what I think of when I hear the term "local fish store."

I think they generally have them available at Dr. Foster & Smith and That Fish Place if you want to order online. I'm sure there are other online options. You might check Aquabid also.
