Rainbows are a whole family of fish.

Not sure about the purity of Win's Endlers, you could ask. I'd imagine most stores get their LBs from pure stock, but they're always mixing them up in their tanks..

Royal Aqua has Cherries at $2, Yellow Shrimp at $3. Not much of either it'd seem. They're a pretty weird source of shrimp sometimes.

Default Rainbows

Blue rainbow: $6.50 each
Bosemanies rainbow: $6.50 each
That's all I saw... the endlers look nice, but there are better deals online.
Oh, thanks for replying guys. I think they are overpriced, $3 for a tiny fry with no colors... Meh when I can get 12 for $8...not including shipping. :P or $2 for 3 but I would have to travel myself.

Hey Robotponys I still got some fry for free and maybe a couple of pregnant females and some adult males too. You have to pick up though.
The last person who came in I probably scooped up close to a hundred fry.
They are just too much on my 20gal long.

Wow! Nice but I would have to convince my mom that driving is not so bad. By the sounds of it, you aren't running out anytime soon lol. I'll try, I just need my last 2 really bad choices of fish to die off already... :P then I will supply us poor deprived manhattan people with free fish! :P (once I get a colon going anyway)

OK so i went by Petco on Friday night and boy was i disapointed. There were 3 dead Kuhlis buried under the sand in the tank, the CPD's looked ok but they were sharing the tank with a pipe fish that was actually jumping out.
It was painful, for the fish I mean.
