Apistogrammas in NYC?

So, I've finally got my 55 up and cycled. Just waiting for the right time to buy some lights and co2. Anyone know of where I can get my hands on some pretty apistogrammas? Thanks!

Unfortunately I do not see these much in the city. Occasionally Pacific will get some. Try Monster Aquarium; they seem to be able to get in a lot of South American fish.

I went there two months ago and the livestock selection was pretty plain asides from some Epiplatys killies. No apistos to be seen, though that may have changed by now.

Mainly cacatuoides Triple Red, bitaeniata, and maybe Vielfleck
I'm looking for beautiful pairs or trios if the price is right.

Monster in flushing had Apistos quite a few times when I was able to go. Call them, if not you can ask for them to order some.
Local Petland discounts had some apistos last week I think.

Yea I'm pretty sure they had them lol.
The two I visit carry African cichlids and south american fish all the time too, I guess they are in demand.

The one I visited today had a bunch of blue acara lol

They can special order fish for you, depends on the manager, same with Petco.

I saw the acara at Austin st in forest hills and the other petland is on 63rd drive. Don't remember which one I saw apistos last week.

It was someone else who told me they special order, but it doesn't hurt to ask lol.
