OK, back to topic....

PetLand Crowfoot: Holy disappointing, Batman! Several of theit tanks are non-functional, 30 or so tanks are empty, the entire (and sparsely stocked) goldfish wall is marked 'not for sale', and the tanks that have fish have nothing interesting and are pretty poorly stocked. From what I have heard, the store is suffering from lack of a fish/reptile manager.


Sunnyside Garden Centre: Wow...if you have not been there lately, go....the store has undergone considerable renos and updating, giving it a great new look, a less-crowded tropical plants section, an indoor koi pond, and the pet section is bright, clean, less crowded, and has some decent livestock tanks with healthy fish. Prices are reasonable on fish, but drystock is a little more than most LFSes.

N. savoryi are sometimes referred to as black brichardi, but I believe N. walteri are more often.


Franco's Aquariums has a 20" Channa micropeltis for a mere $20.

well, i was at Riverfront today looking at some of their stock for this saturday *cracks knuckles*

So there are a few things i saw pretty good prices for:
Odessa Barbs for $6.99 (all other places i saw these as more, sometimes much more!)
Archerfish 2 for $30
and the coolestthing i saw there was ...
Anableps $21.99 each

incase you don't know about these, they are mainly brackish (if i am not mistaken) and they really are 4 eyed fish. When they surface, half their eye sees above the water while the other half sees below the water. They are truely unique.

Livebearers, too...one CAS member spawned them in captivity a few times about 5 years ago.

Yes, we are just waiting for some sort of sale (like they did when reno-ing Westhills), but nothing yet....too bad, I could use some new driftwood.
