WTB - cory catfish

Any local breeders of corys? If not then I'll bite the bullet, I want another bottom schooling fish, but the places I am looking for these are $5/per fish. PM me if you're a breeder, thanks!

not in your area but keep in mind corys are generally quite expensive. even the more common breeds are usually $5 + per fish. the more rare corys can get really pricey

Interesting, why is that?

Depending on the cory species, $5 is a bargain. I have 2 species I paid $16-$17 each, and the others were in the $8 range. My dwarf species were a little less - $3.50 - $5.

That is what I'm looking for, dwarf species, ah, long gone are the days where fish were cheaper!

Around 1968 or so I sold Albino Aeneus cats to the local wholesaler for $.50 each. Wilmar Aquarium in Pine Brook/Montville, NJ. They might have been 3/8" long at the time. I thought it was big money. (Quarter sized silver angels were $.25 each retail-and they did not have burned off dorsal fins) Alas, but Wilmar was torn down as Interstate 80 was built. It was an old cow barn. I'd go there with the owner of the LFS I worked for on Saturday mornings to buy our fish for the week.
