There are usually A. Cacatuoides on there. If not you can check out Apisto Dave. He has his own website

The black rams are so cool. I’ve never kept Rams so I think I would try out Bolivians first. Do you ever have them coralbandit

I've always liked trins tropical fish. They usually have apistogrammas and if they don't have what you want, they'll order it for you. They only charge $15 bucks shipping too! They carry a lot of cichlids, tetras, and lots of 'oddball' fish fairly cheap.

I am raising my second batch of Bolivian rams .The first were outrageous ..These guys got about 1 month left I think ..
Several members on this site have my Bolivian also .Those I have never listed on AB as they are still new to me and many here wanted them ..

Go on Aqua Huna or Imperial Tropicals if you prefer cheap shipping and wholesale.

Nowhere lol. I tried it once and it was a fiasco. I suggest if you can, support your local fish stores even if they are a little far away. Something about fish in a small bag for a day just doesn't sit right with me. Good luck

that's fair but the lfs have to get their fish from somewhere too... also I can't drive yet and my parents dread taking me places especially the pet store so I m kinda forced to order online otherwise I would go in store.

Are you being serious? How do you think the fish get to most LFSs?

I understand, cut out the middle man huh lol. Another advantage is that typically your LFS has the same water parameters you have, yes they purchase online and from local breeders, but the fish have been acclimated to LFS water parameters which should be the same as yours. Stress is a big killer of fish, I'm just saying the sooner you can get them out of the bag acclimated and into your tank the better. If I had to do it again I would probably go with liveaquaria or azgardens someone big well know offers a doa refund
