Windex......nice! I'm also fan of the yellow, orange and green guys. Some say if they are mixed they will revert to the wild color....brownish. But, there is an lfs near me that has kept all these together an they are still breeding colors.

Sorry ekimf.....didn't mean to hijack. It's MrBrongher's fault......he threw me off with the windex! hahaha.....just kidding.

I know you are in NY, but Fishtown USA in Ramsey, NJ has all different types. Not sure if they are true blue velvets or not, but I did see blues in his tank. I think they were $5.99 each, 3 for $15 or something like that.

Aaaahhhh yes. I forgot he hooked you guys up with a discount. He may do the same for anyone who mentions the website to him. Just ask for Evan, he is the owner. He has a bunch of different mosses as well. Great prices and portions. And marimo moss balls for $1.50!!!!

How far (time frame from say, Queens) would the fishtown usa in jersey be?
If its under an hour I might have to go.
I managed to see a few at the pet warehouse on LI, I only grabbed one because they wanted $15 each, and the only reason I bothered was because it was a berried female (who's eggs have now hatched, so I have at least a couple assuming my filter didn't nab any babies up (I'm ordering a filter guard as we speak lol)

It's about 20 minutes from the GWB. I recommend going on a Sunday. Blue laws are in effect on Sunday, so you won't get killed with traffic. Saturday traffic in that area can easily turn that 20 minutes into 45.

IME, the ones sold at fistown were richly blue under some normal aquarium lamps and werent "clearish" as some of our local members who picked up blue velvets have commented. They also have some very nice quality orange, yellows and cardinals that are quite a sight to watch!
