I picked up a couple of stunning crowntails at Gold Aquarium earlier thios week for $4.99 each. I also bought one of Pisces males (you have to look through theirs...so are OK, but a very few are really nice). I believe I saw a couple of combtail or crowntail females amongst the females that they have in, but they are marked no differently than the others, so you need to look very closely.

wow, I wish I was in calgary. my daughter wants a betta in the worst way. One of those from Golds would be perfect. The ones I have seen in town here are very plain and kind of unhealthy/depressed looking...if a fish can look that way lol

Today the CAS treasurer and I are hitting Tanks, a couple of the PetLands (MacLeod and Shawnessy), and possibly Franco's and Pisces.

I picked up a huge female guppy with a massive tail fin and 10 feeder/wild-type guppies from Pisces today....the feeder guppies have some very unusual finnage and patterns....should be interesting to see how they mature and reproduce.

Well, I was out today....and visited a shop that had dozens of those 'stone cats' (but a bit bigger than Pisces'), some nice swords, and about a billion Badis badis bengalensis....I'll bet Menagerie would like to know which shop...
