Just finished converting my high tech 24g cube to a low tech shellie cichild tank(multies). Everything’s good to go so went to my LFS to get the fish. They are out of stock. I asked them how much to order some, they said 30$ a piece. I was like “forget that, not paying 180$ for 6 tiny fish.” I figured they be like 10-20$ max.

Any know of where I could get some multies in Central Jersey? I’m in East Brunswick about 20mins from Rutgers. I really really don’t want to order online. Willing to drive about an hour max.

You can also check out shelldwellers.com. I got my shellies from there and the guy was from NJ.

Try Aquaswap on Reddit, there was 1-2 guys that were selling. One of the guys was from Toms River IIRC which isn't too far from you.

Thanks for your help guys. I will sign up with shelldwellers. I wanted to get my feet wet so I bought a few baby cichlids for the tank. I know it’s totally sacrilege to put Africans(other than shellies) in a tank this size. But, I wanted some experience before getting the shellies which are obviously going to be much more expensive. Once they outgrow the tank they’re gone, unless I get the shellies sooner.
