Petco Union Square has male & female dwarf gouramis for $4.99 ea or $2.99 with a Pals card. They're the wild type, & they appeared to be healthy. So tempted, but I'm up to my ears in anabantoids. Pacific had a tank full of female dwarf gouramis (I forget the price) & some rare yellow-tailed Congo tetras for 14.99 ea. or 3 for $30.00. The Congos were very impressive, but regular Congos are much nicer & much cheaper. They also had quite a few sunset variatus for a buck apiece.

Hey guys, just a heads up- Petco's having a 25% off sale on their website. Everything they're selling online is at least 25% off. ex- A bag of eco complete is now $17 from $23

Nice! I live right near there. I know Petsmart just changed up their sale for the next month, so curious to see what else they have for a buck!

1. Take the A,B,C,D trains to West 4th street , then transfer to the F train n get off delancey st. (A train will get you there the fastest)

or

2. Take 2 or 3 train downtown to fulton street, transfer to the queens bound J train and get off essex st

They update their plant selection every thursday afternoon. Yesterday, some things they had that caught my interest were red nesaea, cambomba furcata, rotala wallachi, and mermaid weed.

Petco seems to be getting more "rare" fish...I think its still the same vendor seagrest? but theres just some new things they havent carried before. Dan mentioned a few before. Its also confusing because they have tags with different names and prices yet the same fish. (ruby clown cichlid, vs bolivian ram. rili shrimp vs. red and white shrimp. )

Visited 86nLex and union square

A lot more rainbows it seems

Marci rainbow
Neon rainbow
Parkinson rainbow
Maccullochi rainbow
Madagascar rainbow
Rhino pleco
horned nerites
Zebra oto ($21 but didnt see any in stock)
woworae kili (daisys rice fish Im guessing)
blue eyed albino plecos
grasscutter shark (looks like a catfish... like a pangasius mixed with a debauwi. googling \ Schilbe mystus?)
Dwarf Emerald rasbora - Microrasbora erythromicron
stone catfish
hengeli rasbora
pseudomugil gertrudae (only saw one female i think..)
pseudomugil furcatus
boraras brigittae
Red rili shrimp - didnt look too great $6-7

I picked up a few "assorted" cories.. which turned out to be reticulated cories I think.. they have them mixed with trilineatus, so hard to spot but definitely a different species.
