I wish I had this fish store local to me.
Excellent stock lists on wild fish.
I ever so often look at the availability lists for Neds-- which I think are just as good as Wetspots-- but, Im in California, so just look.
They better be
-- one of our preferred wholesalers is Wetspot's wholesale sibling (same owner) - we especially love his asian fish stock, great nano fish etc.
But we also have a wholesaler for farmed rift lake fish, one for wild west african fish, and another for wild and farmed new world species.
its a fun place to work
Cryptic used to be one of my regular customers at a store I worked at before Neds, until that store moved (twice), went saltwater only, and then became a tank service company instead of a LFS. when I was running that dept I was trying real hard to remake the fw dept in Neds image lol.
haven't seen him in person in years sadly.
Which was why I found it amusing that he was looking for wild cardinals since I personally end up selling at least a few dozen every Saturday. and that he was looking for Discus right before we got a new shipment in.
we are doubly blessed out here - there are a number of fish clubs in driving distance, and the Boston club has deep ties to the New England Aquarium, and the NEAq has very
deep ties to Project Piaba. Back when I was getting to club meetings regularly (and regional conventions annually) I used to get to see a talk on the status of Piaba at least every 2 years.
Buy a fish save a tree !
