Has anyone been to the Union Square Petco lately? I'm looking to buy some watersprite and maybe swordtails.

Just an update on the pygmy cories....they are sold out in NJ as well. Fishtown in Ramsey converted the entire back room to saltwater! Ended up with 2 bumble gobies ($4.99 each) and 2 sparkling gouramis (2 for $7). Also bought nice, big bunches of cabomba for $1.50 each!

I got my scissors here (can't go wrong for $5.35):

http://www.precisionproducts.us/F604...e-p/f604sc.htm

And for tweezers, McMaster has a good selection, I order tools for work from them all the time, and their warehouse is in Jersey, so you would get things 1-3 days later:

Score! Pygma, just like chilies seem to be seasonal fish so they will eventually be available in late summer. Im eagerly awaiting for the next opportunity to visit Fishtown in ramsey to see how their main room is redone with fresh water and planted tanks. the were just installing the custom cabinet to a movie prop fish tank that one of their patrons acquired at auction. apparently it came from a new movie starring leonardo dicaprio shot locally. It had massive twin overflows at each corner of the tank. Its worth noting that they have bumped up the variety of shrimp they stock as well as small nano fish. definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.

I wish they had that stock in when I was there this weekend. They only had 2 or 3 shrimp types in there, and they were expensive! He used to have more in the back, which is all gone now. He didn't have much in the way of nano fish either. I didn't get to talk to Evan because the family was with me, and the little guy was getting cranky....so I had to bolt. I hope after the moving around and stuff that he builds the stock back up.

Absoutely Fish did have chilis, and they looked nice. Can't remember what the price was, although I think they were on the high side ($6.99ea?). They had a BUNCH of other nano fish as well. Might end up being my goto spot for the nano tanks.
