Sorry, they weren't priced & there was nobody around to ask. Typical.

Hey fellow New Yorkers. Sorry to hijack this thread about fish stock but since everyone on this post is a NY'er I wanted to share some info I just read on our water report.

Our tap water is lead free from the reservoirs but as many of you probably know it can become contaminated by old pipes on it's way to your apartment. And since so many of us live in very old establishments why not find out how much lead is in your particular tap. The Dep. of Environmental Protection offers a free lead test kit by calling 311. I just ordered one tonight. Crossing my fingers that my water is in the clear since I drink a ton of it. If not I have more of a reason to buy an RO system.

Good to know. Thanks, has anyone seen RCS or CRS around? And at what prices? Thanks.

Have anyone visited Pacific lately? Want to see what plants they have tomorrow since I am heading to Chinatown to see the New Year parade and taking some photos.

Hit a few shops up in Queens and LI this morning.

Pets Warehouse in Copiague had some healthy, fat looking Otos for $2.50, nice blue rams (2/$12), Sundadanio axelrodi, Bolivian rams, Sparkling gouramis, Danio erythromicron. They also had quite a few species of rainbowfish. Plant selection wasn't all that great this visit.

Frank's Aquarium has quite a few Boraras in stock (no chilis right now), Microdevario nanus and kubotai, a cool iridescent livebearer ( Knife Livebearer, Alfaro cultratus ), and an incredibly cool small pencilfish, the shining pencilfish, Nannostomus nitidus.

PW Carle Place had some nice Celebes rainbows and a few Angelicus botia.

Monster Aquarium has quite a few CPDs, and the Ember tetras also look nice (they have good color in the store and will likely color up nicely). They are out of Chili rasboras.

Fish Town usually have cardinals. They got some cardinals when I was there 3 weeks ago. They carry cardinals very often.
