I just got back from there. Most of the tanks (except for the display tanks) were sold already. They still had a few larger pumps and some filters for sale. Most of the stuff in the store is 50-60% off. I picked up some food and medication. Most of the stuff are still in good condition, just covered in soot. The only livestock left are assorted cichlids, and smaller fish (barbs, harlequin rasboras, guppies, and hillstream loaches) all near the front of the store. Bring a flash light and some gloves.

Yeah, they had about 3-4 before I left. Not sure on the species.

We came out with a ton of stuff. Passed on 2 new Aquaclear 110s going for $30 and $40 then later scored one for $25.

Picked up a dozen hillstreams, windelov ferns, various aquaclear sponges for the 50 and 70, 4 cans of flake food, airline hoses, airline valves, airline suction cups, a dual 48" t5h0 fixture, 6 dwarf shrimp, deep blue nano thermometer, primafix, another antibotic, a new deep blue 2.5g and that's only what i picked up...

There were a lot of people walking in and out of the place and the tanks are pretty much spoken for. plenty of other accessories like power heads, water pumps, versa tops, dry foods, medicines, frog/cray/herbit crab accessories, heaters, airpumps (which i forgot to pick up), light bulbs and various fixtures remaining. some gorgeous goldfish and african cichlids left. Lots of chem stuff for salt and planted ferts in random places.

make an offer for anything there excluding the tanks which are all sold...

The store manager had 15 high end fluval 300w heaters going for $10 each new open box.

Can you get there using public transport? And does anyone remember how many HR there were or the pricing?

There were three harlequin rasboras. I don't know how much they were, though. The guppies were sold for dirt cheap, so I doubt they'll be expensive.

I had to stop myself from buying stuff after a while. There's quite a bit if you don't mind getting dirty.

I think they were basically giving volume discounts - the more you buy, the less you pay per item. They get to sell out faster that way. Also, I'm pretty sure I broke the poor guy's brain a little with my pile of loot.
