i have 4 sparking gourami's that i got from petown for cheap. think it was 5 for $10 a few months ago.
another good deal i saw was cherry red shrimp for $1 each at pac reef in fountain valley.
i'm looking for some checkerboard cichlids and coral red pencilfish. already saw the checkerboards at petown and a little too rich for my blood.
btw, i go up to the bay area about once a month. so if anybody has requests let me know. don't mind grabbing a few items for people since i end up getting something for myself almost everytime. just remember that no promises, but will do what i can.
