Dwarf puffers Where?


I know this sounds crazy but I really can't find dwarf puffers in NYC. Anyone know where to get one or does anyone here have one that I can borrow?

I need it to eat all my pond snails. Also they are cute and I like them.

They also usually have some at New World Aquarium in midtown. Might want to call first though. They were $4.99 each when I was there.

Sometimes, when you go to your LFS, ask them if they carry it and if they dont ask them if you can order some. Make sure they know what dwarf puffers are, many of them THINK they know.

Dwarf puffers = pea puffers.

The only problem with that is that my LFS sucks. They never listen to reason and I know they won't order anything because they assume I won't follow up.

I tried to request a few things before and tried to sell my stuff to them, they always act the same. Gives u a smug face look and tell u that the boss isn't here and they can't order anything without him.

Saddly none. None one store had them. The other sad thing is that there were no otto cats anymore either. I can't find them anywhere!

This is starting to get fustrating.

I bought 2 oto cats in petland discounts in great neck, right off of northern blvd if your willing to make the trip out there. I think they were 1.49 each. but call them first bc they didnt have many left.

New world still had about 3-4 DPs sat night, 4.99 each, right by the tank with the moss balls. Hope you find some.
