Green neon tetras in Austin, TX?


Anyone know where I can get 10-15 green neons locally? I already tried Fish Gallery and Aquatek and they don't have any.

I was at aquatek earlier today and I saw a tank full of them. They were selling for three dollars each.

Thanks for the reply FreshPuff. I did stop by again Friday and saw they got some in stock.

I messaged her but she just ignored me. Also, her current stock list doesn't seem to carry them. I did find a place called Gunpowder Aquatics that ships them.

mrsjinkzd doesn't ship around the holidays. so thats probably why she didn't respond. i know you said you got some, but you gotta make your way out to stinky's fish mart, hes about 15 minutes outside of austin on 290 in manor. really good little shop, guy knows his stuff.

also since i so many south texas people on this reply.

Awesome. Thanks guys. I've never been there or even heard of them. That sure beats Aquatek's prices. I'll check it out when my HC is finished carpeting and I'm ready to add fish.

I messaged her like end of October/early November and never got any response. If she didn't have any in stock or wasn't shipping or whatever, it would only take 5 seconds to reply to my message. Oh well.

Thanks for the tip about Stinky's.

Have you tried Austin Aqua-dome? They usually have some unusual fish, and I'm pretty sure I saw some green neons in there a few months ago.
