Subject: RE: SAE's in the Philadelphia area
Hope I'm posting correctly.
After many months of lurking and nearly as many looking for SAE's I believe
I've found them at "The Aquarium Center" in Clementon, NJ. Their number is
609-627-6262 and they are located on Blackwood-Clementon Road a couple of
miles north of Route 42.
I started going to this shop after reading a post from someone who also
thought theat they found SAE's at this store (I think they turned out to be
False Siamensis). This shop has become my favorite in the area. They also
devote some thirty+ tanks to plants. I call and check for a recent plant
shipment because they seem to move them pretty quickly (and this is a 45
minute drive for me).
But I digress....
These little critters are small, about 1"-1.5", $1.89, and labeled as
"Siamensis Flying Fox". They look like the SAE in the Frank and Sarakontu
article but since I've never seen one, I'm not positive. Single pair of
barbels, transparent fins, horizontal stripe extending to the tip of the
tail, the larger ones I picked up have uneven edging on the stripe, and
black edges on the scales in the dorsal region.
