Thanks, I'll check again, but last time I was there I didn't see any.

Edit:
Went to Pacific and they had otos on stock!

Not sure what it's called, but the shop on 123 Elizabeth always has otos in stock (or whenever I go).

Anyone know of any Albino BN plecos on sale? I know Win had them, but the last time I bought some, I didn't remember paying ~$10 for each. I think I got some from a local member once

I got three from Win three weeks ago, one died in three days, but the other two looks good. Otos are so hard to keep, but once they don't die right away, they seem to last for a while.

Swung by Pacific today, they probably received a shipment of otos this week, they have a tank filled with them, as usual 3/$6. I only saw 1-2 otos at WIN, $1.75.

Edit: Stupid me, just realized you bought some.

I just went to local petland in bay ridge and scored 5 congo tetras at $1.49 each. I guess instead of going to win and pacific all the time its worth to take a look around locally as well. They also had 3 diamond tetras at 2/$5 they looked nice. not much else besides the usual.

Can anyone check at Pacific if they have Sundadaino Axelrodi (tiny blue-streak rasboras)? It would save me a long subway round-trip from Sheepshead Bay if I knew in advance! I'd be driving back to Philly later that day so time is short for me. Much appreciated!

Fishtown USA always has Ottos, same for GBRs at good prices.
Never had any luck with their GBRs, don't know who they get them from.

Any locals selling GBRs or Apistos?

No luck with GBRs? I've bought 2 from Win and 4 petland (eek) and they all seem to be fine... Not thriving quite yet as I haven't been reducing the pH as much as I'd like.

Pacific had some a few days ago.

I have some F1 Apistogramma bitaeniata juveniles, some are obviously male but I can't guarantee pairs.

F0 male:
