SAE in Vancouver?


Hi everyone~

I was wondering if anyone had found REAL SAEs in BC lower mainland? A couple places I've looked tried to sell me flying foxes/chinese algae eaters as SAEs...

Or if anyone is selling them around here?

Thanks!

I've got them in the past from Rogers Aquatics in Surrey/Delta. (120th St., & 81st Ave.,)
But I don't think they carry them all the time. Call them ahead to find out.

Do flying foxes eat brush algae? I have a low-tech setup and it seems to be a constant problem despite co2 dosing and trimming. It's not overtaking the tank because of how much maintenance I do, but I feel like I could use a little help from SAEs.

I know these two are commonly mistaken for each other because there are very subtle differences, but I need to be sure what I get will do well in a peaceful tank. Hence wanting SAEs...
