Hi every one! I need just a couple male rcs. I bought 6 in new orleans but they turned out to be all females (although one is preggers I think).

The only place I could find that sold them was a place off of 19 close to port richy still a far drive for me, called fosters pets. But when I seen they wanted $3.99 per shrimp for a low grade rcs. I was instantly offended and turned around and walked out.

If any one knows of a reasonable place. Or have some extra males them selves they could do without. I could drive or pay for shipping.

Thanks.

I don't buy ANYTHING from Fosters! EVER!!! Their tanks are always disgusting, their pets always look abused, and they'll try to sell you hair algae as java moss. I've never seen such a dirty store in my life! Tbh I wouldn't take anything from that store even if they gave it to me. I don't in ow how they stay in business.

Jeden8 is in Tampa and supplies marine warehouse with their cherries, shoot him a pm maybe he's got some. I know he's trying to get rid of his cherry tank, I just don't have the extra $$ to pick it up.

Hope that helps!

I just found the best lfs I have ever been to in my life. The place didn't smell. The staff are educated hobbyist and friendly, not just idiots trying to make a buck. Pristine clean tanks. Lovely fish, awesome selection of plants. Reasonable prices.

It's called "fish heads" in Ocala. If you are any where in the area you owe it to yourself to stop by there. Especially if your into discus.

This is a pic I took in store with my phone of just one of their tanks... But every one of their tanks or every bit as clean and beautiful as this one. LOL you can see my reflection taking the pic.

Theyre on my list if i ever make it to ocala, the last time i was through it was On my way! To new york for a fam emerg in feb.

On a side note i keep telling myself a planted tank fish store would be amazing, all of the stores in the tampa area are barren save their plant tank...you know a sell whats in excess kinda thing...
