Hey all, just hit up a few LFS in SF yesterday and found the all coveted true SAE. I saw them at 2 stores in the city, so maybe they are coming back in season??? I was extremely tempted to pick some up myself, but I only have a 20 gallon so they would outgrow the tank. They were sold for 2.99 at both stores and were quite small, about 1 inch long (i hear they eat more algae when small) Anyways, I saw them at Nippon Goldifsh and Lucky Ocean Aquarium. If you guys need their location, just ask.

It could very well be that they are coming back in season. I had been bugging my LFS to order some for the last 6 months but their suppliers weren't carrying any. Then suddenly about 3 weeks ago, they called me up and told me they were finally able to get some in. Yay!

A month and a half ago I bought 6 SAE from Nippon in SF for 9 bucks

I hope they get that cheap again

I've found them at Petco (Eastbay) and Ultimate Aquarium (San Mateo), but at both stores they're displayed as Flying Foxes.
I've also seen a true Flying Fox at Family Pets (Fremont) So somewhere there must be a wholesaler that has them listed incorrectly in their catalog.

Petsmart stores sell them for $1.49 as "flying fox".
