Question Anyone Selling Amanos in Eastern Long Island?

Looking to add quite a few to my dads' tank. He's located in the Patchogue-Medford area, so anything near by would be ideal. Nassau County isn't out of the question though, as he does work out of Hicksville, so if you're off the LIE between those two points, we can probably work something out.

Looking for around a dozen, give or take.

Aqua Hut in Coram usually carries them for cheap.

Never been — I'll check it out, as I'm out visiting him tomorrow afternoon.

Online reviews look great, though it looks like they don't have any kind of website, and no one is answering when I call. Last review I've found was from March of this year.

Have you been by there recently? Are they still open?

Have either of you guys been by there recently? No one is answering their phone, so I just wanna make sure they're actually open.

Sounds good. Thanks!

The hours of operation were what I wanted to reach them about anyway, so you've already answered that for me.

They usually don't answer the phone for some reason!

Glad you found what you needed. Prices are reasonable on everything they sell. The empty storefront next to them houses all of their tanks and cabinets.

They didn't actually have any Amanos in stock (should have them this week), but I was able to get a school of juvenile Cardinal Tetras and juvy False Julii Cory's into his tank.

They cut deals on both, since I also had him pick up frozen foods and a couple odds and ends.

Prices were definitely solid, and they seem like really great dudes who run it.

Dont feel bad. They never pick up the phone there... They only deal in person so its worth making the trip out there every now and then.
