Did they have a new bunch of the cardinal tetras?
They had mixed some green neons in there last week and wanted more of them and might have some more mixed in if they had a new batch of cardinals.
Oh and yes the cardinals were $1 a piece.
They haven't had an otto for quite a time already.
How many ottos are you looking to get?

There was a tank full of cardinals...nothing else was mixed in with them...I bought 16...tons left. Idk how many oto's...they're adorable...lol...I want to put some in my shrimp tank and possibly 2 other tanks. It depends I guess...the only time I ever found them was at Petland on Manhattan Ave in Brooklyn and there were only 2 left...I bought them...did a 2 hour slow drip acclimating process...they lasted a month and passed. I loved them and definitely miss seeing them in my tanks.

Petco Union Square has pygmy cories, some transparent fish that looks like a glofish but you can see their internal organs, silver hatchetfish, silver tipped tetra with a yellow body, debauwi catfish, and otos.

Clown loaches too.

I bought some of these last week from them....they looked really good (very red!). What are sakura shrimp anyways? Is this the same as fire reds? (b/c they look just like them)

Petco Union Square also has Beckford's pencils for 1.59, which is a steal for such an awesome fish. But they also have Garra cambogdiensis which they are selling as SAEs. BEWARE!!! They are super aggressive, & good luck trying to remove them from a planted tank without destroying your whole layout. Aquarium Gallery on Ave. U has some nice sized, very healthy looking CPDs for 5.00 & Hypseleotris cyprinoides, a very cool, very rare sleeper goby for 6.00

I am still searching for rummies, and stopped by 123, and was going to pick them up when... I noticed one of the rummies was not swimming along with the rest, then I noticed why. ICH!! Ohh great. I guess I'm not getting them from there.
I stopped by Royal Aqua because I know they had some also. They've been there for over a month, but they wanted 4/$10 so I was hoping to get them cheaper. I got there yesterday night, and they had them still there, in a tank full of neons. THe tank was marked tetras $1.25. I knew they weren't going to be that cheap but I was hoping. Didn't work ohh well I noticed that they had black neons also. How do they school? THey are bigger, so I know that they will be able to hang with my angels, but I want something to school, so I picked up 8 rummies, and maybe I'll pick up 8 more later on.

^^^ was at Pacific this wekend and they had a tank full of rummies, as for angels wouldnt rummies fit in thier mouth ?
I just got a few angels my self from pacific , these are blue neon angels marked $40 for 3 but i got it for cheaper :P
Anyways i have read this alot of times - "a fish which fits in angelfish's mouth will/might be eaten"
I have kept mine with rasboras because of thier biger size

do you know if these are true blue crayfish? and not the one that might lose color after a few molts?

looked to be true blue crayfish, i believe they were blue Procamarus Clarkii. sizes ranged from 1in to about 2.5 inches and majority had intact claws and legs. there were around 30 in the tank with lots of pvc pipes for hides.
