    Hi. I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I am not certain where else to put it. If it's in the wrong place, please move to the correct forum.

    I am located in the Tampa area. I was looking to get a group of five weather loaches.

    I am unable to find any in the pet stores I visited. I tried ordering online. Three of the five arrived DOA, another died within a few hours, so I will not order online again.

    Does anyone in the Tampa, FL area know where I could buy three or four weather loaches?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to the forum . Imperial Tropicals is located in Lakeland ,Fla they are a big fish farm and you maybe able to go in person . There is also another big one in RiverView, Fla but I can't remember the name . Look up tropical fish farms in or near Tampa ,Fla. I think some would allow you to go pick up some . Welcome to the forum and glad you joined us... Alison:;hi1

    I lived in weston Florida and the pet shops had a wide variety of fishes. They also had big loaches. Try going to Weston it is also close to many lakes and those lakes have many colorful fish mostly livebearers.
