Calgary shop report

Just dropped in to Chum's today, and they have long-finned German rams for $7 each if you buy 6, and J. transcriptus 'gombi' for $10 each, as well as a large selection of nice crowntail bettas for $9.99 each....and Apisto agassizi for $25 each or 6 for $100 (Riverfront's are $36 each).

I hope to get up to Pisces later, as they should have got their weekly order in yesterday sometime.

Correct, but the transcriptus are far prettier, and rarely exceed 4".

Riverfront has some nice cardinals right now, and you get a discount there, too.

Probably...he wasn't all that obvious. He was, I believe, in the third row, left side, top row, near the end (and if you see the tank and not him, have someone check, since, at first, I thought his tank was empty, too).
