Aquarium center is nice and even the worst of the employees there are helpful. They do sell shrimp there, but what they actually have can really vary so I'd say it's worth contacting them ahead of time if you want something specific. I just wished they were closer to me as with traffic it can take around an hour each way.

I don't recall seeing any shrimps but I'm not saying there weren't any.......Their plants always look good. Thought their prices weren't as high as I had thought they would be...(does that make sense?)

They had pygmy cories - I picked up a few.
I got the last few assassin snails...

Are you looking for a particular species? I know plenty of folks who breed darts. Mantella are a bit more tricky to get captive bred. But you are in luck, because spring is the season when the mantellas are ready for sale. Unfortunately, they don't breed as readily as dart do. Check out understoryenterprises.com for mantellas. If any of mine were breeding yet, I would definitely hook you up. But I have a few months to go on some species and another year or so on the others.

definitely not looking for anything in particular excepting that my wife has to love them, its her tank. the only thing I've seen her really focus on is mantella aurantica, but any nice darts will probably do fine. anyways this project is still just a glass box in the garage right now, just beginning my research and thought of you so i started here. i might hit you up a little later with more questions!

Anyone wanna buy some pinoy angelfish? About silver dollar body size, nice blues and greens in their body and fins. $20 each or 3 for $50. Looking to thin the herd (14 total). Some will be breeding in the next couple months.

Any time man, you know that. M. Auriantica are sweet! They are also your best bet at finding cb frogs. They breed rather prolifically. That said, have her look at Phyllobates Terribillis 'yellow' or 'orange'. Very similar frogs, and much easier to come by.
