Kissena Aquarium in Flushing is where I got mine....they were something like $12 each, but they were nice and big and colorful and well worth it.

Petland in Brighton Beach has Congos for $4.49 each. They're about 1 1/2 inches & appear to be mostly males.

went to kissena, 7.99 each. Great price, but the ones I wanted only had 1 good eye. Everything else wasn't really colored to well.

South Shore Tropicals has a few in stock. The only problem is that They're all the way over in Lindenhurst!

I would think the Petco in Union Sq carries them if you're up that way. I've bought them from another store.

Petland by Pace carries them from time to time but last time I got them they were most if not all females 1-1.5" but was like $1.88 /ea.

Try calling a few places to save you teh trouble of going there.
