I'm headed over there now, here's hoping for a few good starter fish/shrimp and low light plants!

Edit- just went, grabbed a school of 10 emperor tetra and a big grab bag of low light freshwater plants, and two fluval filters, he tossed in a bucket free. Half off!
he had more emperor tetras, and black tetras too. all the platys and such were gone, and i plum forgot to ask about shrimp, i wouldn't mind getting a few for the tank since some algae is definitely on these leaves. maybe i'll swing by there tomorrow?

Edit - went back yesterday, all the plants are now gone or spoken for. Lots of tanks on hold too. Still have plenty of those emperor tetra there. They have a bunch of lights, but none that were full spectrum to fit my hood. I picked up a spare fish net, filter, and other odds and ends. Sad to say, I think that's that for my trips to Win. I headed to Pacific for a Marimo ball, Amazon Sword and a Anachris - all algae and snail free, unlike the Win plants, haha!

Depends on what size you want. There are places in brooklyn that sell rimless acrylic tanks. Ridgewood Aquarium in NJ specializes in ADA stuff, give them a call.

Was there this morning. They still have alot of small ones hiding all over the place in that tank. I took a net and turned over all the junk in that tank and was able to find two larger ones. I ended up only buying one since I figure they will clone like crazy.

It might be tough; I went all over the five boroughs and ended up ordering from AFA in San Francisco. Shipping was painful though

Some of them may have carried them in the past, or might have limited supply. I ran into the same trouble trying to find them locally - it was just easier to order from marinedepot.com or petstore.com. I think that Rt. 4 can order them in for you if you prefer not to have them shipped.

World Class Aquarium has pairs of dwarf gouramis for $6.99. Yep, you heard right - males AND females. They didn't look very healthy, unfortunately. Brooklyn Zoo has dyed rasboras - Rasbora tornieri, I think. They're pretty large, about 4" or so. What happened, did they run out of glassfish to dye?
