Question

Where can I get Zebra Loaches?


Has anyone acquired this specimen in their local fish store and in the US? I have checked Petsmart, Petland, and Petco. So does anyone know any fish stores that hold and sell these fish? I am willing to buy some from you guys if your willing to sell them soon. Thanks!

Actually, what is the difference between a local fish store and a chain store? I never thought there was a difference.

I bough mine locally from a fish store (not a chain). A chain store is a large chain that operates nationally. There are also some smaller chains that are regional. Then there are stores that are independently owned that generally have one or a handful of locations; this is what I think of when I hear the term "local fish store."

I think they generally have them available at Dr. Foster & Smith and That Fish Place if you want to order online. I'm sure there are other online options. You might check Aquabid also.
