Lampeye Killis for $4, 3/$8
Rasbora sarawakensis aka Sarawak Rasboras for $5, 3/$10
and Large white clouds (2.5cm) for $2, 3/$4
They also had Massivore Delite 13.4 oz for $23, the cheapest Ive seen at a local petstore in the city.

Win had:
A tank full of $1 cardinals, Green-eye rasboras for $1.50 each, and Otos for $1.50 each. They also had small Sakura Shrimp for $2.50 each, 10/$20.
Any green neon tetras in the cardinal tank at Win?

Not sure. A few of the tetras had a greenish tint to them. So maybe there might be some in the tank.

Pacific had dwarf baby tears portions when I stopped by last week. Didn't get the price though. Also some mystery moss in bags for $7.99 I think. Win didn't really have that many plants in stock.

Dunno about the bag size but the amount of moss in them was close to golfball size.

BTW, most Petco's have a kit offer for a 15g tank with hood, light, heater and filter... for 39.99$. Pretty good deal.
