Default Good finds at the LFS

Anyone ever get a really sick deal at the LFS? I know it happens...just the other day I found Microrasbora kubotai for $2.99 each. I took the whole tank (a dozen).

Also, a few months ago I got a nice laceleaf bulb for $2.99.

Please share your tales!

Puntius denisonii for 12.50 ea, picked up all they had, save the one with a sunken belly. Could not pass them up at that price.

Not at lfs but was just part of group order that picked up some quarter size wild altums for 9 ea incl shipping.

Awesome looking fish error. They remind me of old rubber glitter full fish lures, quiet pretty fish.

I picked up a small school of Sawbwa resplendens at $3 each. Never saw them before and as usual they were mislabeled but they are great looking fish.

nice indeed I have yet to get any sort of killer deal at an LFS. I'm still waiting for the day that they get any of the small rasboras LOL

Got some nicely sized Colombian RamsHorn snails for $1.99 each. Not really a bargain aside from the fact that the other option is ordering them on-line and paying a boatload for shipping. It's rare for a store here to have Rams Horns.

Sigh, that would be so much fun to be able to scout for things like that. We don't even have a LFS in the area, so it isn't going to happen for me.

Pretty much everything went for a good price at our local Raleigh Aquarium Society auction this past weekend.











Next year, y'all come!
