Hello, I am looking to maybe buy some fancy goldfish from a breeder/hobbyist. I do not want to buy fish from the LFS around me, they always look like they are sick and in bad shape. I live in Staten Island, NY, but anywhere in the New York City area is fine.

Maybe somebody can help me out? Thanks.

I'd have been able to help if (a) I hadn't sold off all my Fancys and (b) if you didn't live across the bordor, but oh well.
Hope someone can come along to help! :bump:

What kind/size of tank do you plan to put them in?
Do you know about the nitrogen cycle?

I'd find the local aquarium club and ask around there, someone there might be breeding them or know of a good place to get some.

Here's a pretty extensive list of fish clubs in the NY area... (http://www.petfish.net/forum/index.php/topic,13754.0.html)
