    Gurnee! Home of Great America, for those that didn't know.

    So, those are tricky to find sometimes. I know a store that sells them in the NW burbs, I think. It's called Aquarium Adventure and Petland in Hoffman Estates. It's probably an hour from you.

    Check online for mosquito abatement in your area. Occasionally, there are counties and cities that give away mosquitofish. The public often does not even now. They do it for a variety of reasons, such as West Nile virus and even to deal with the problem in recent years of abandoned pools due to the economy.

    If there is a county extension service near you, they may have them. How close are you to the University of Illinois? I think they have an extension service.
