Man too bad. I've been meaning to get some neon blue Badis out in centereach for $7. I know its a trek for most, but my parents live out there so it's not a big deal for me.

Looking for a good local source for Crystal Red Shrimps. I'm starting another 2 4 gallon tanks and require some new stock.

Hey I have some extra CRS that I can give you. If you want to come to Astoria, they are yours. You can see pics of them in my 5.5 gallon journal. I have from A to SS.

Best,

Sorry about your fishies, OoglyBoogly. It's one of the best stores in the area, too bad badis were starved or sick. Another possible factor might have been the ph swing from their tank to yours - their tank pH is 6.2, I was slowly acclimatizing a dwarf puffer from there for 2 days to my pH 7.2.

Where to find proven discus pairs? And also nice CRS. I heard Win Tropical has them. Is that true?

Petco Union Sq has a bunch of CPDs for the usual 3.99.
They also have a few cherrys for $5 and a couple blueberries left for the usual price (forgot what it is).
Unfortunately 2 or 3 tank sections have dead and sick fish but overall its not too bad.


Petland Nassau has big German Blue Rams for around $20 each

$20 wow...Might as well just wait for Win to restock their tanks. They sell it for 6.50-8.50 depending on the size.

Well, Good new and bad news.. Bad news is that they didn't have any, and the guy who was there said that he hasn't seen any in the tanks in weeks (he could be wrong). Good news is that I probally saved about $20 or $30 from buying fish that are going to die on me
