Cannot find the fish I want

    Hi all, I am trying to get 8 congo tetras for my 55 g tank. My preferred lfs told me they would have them in last week, 12 of them. Yesterday I called and they had 2. I assume that was all that came in. Don't know when they will get more they said. Because the research said they are schooling fish and the group forms a pecking order, I hoped to get them 4 at a time a week apart. So my question is should I buy them as they become available, maybe 1 or 2 at a time or wait and try to get them all from same shipment? Or does it matter? Thanks.

    I'd take what they have for now - if their stock moves they will be more likely to replace, especially if you pre- order.
    If you can't wait or don't trust them to restock, you can mail order a dozen from somewhere like wetspottropicslfish.com
