Default Of Tin Foil Barbs, Bichirs

I.... know this is super like cheapo fish.. but is a personal fav in a tank..

Actually was wondering where I can find a good collection of TFB at a good price?

Am looking at getting a school of like 8-10 pcs to fill up my otherwise empty tank and clean up leftovers.

Not so eager to get any expensive fishes for now coz I'm plannin to sell the place and move out as soon as i can

Now still left 1 8" Oscar and 1 1ft+ Gar... Seebay lonely....

Am also looking at Bichirs... Majority are like so small... i very worried will kenna makan by the gar Maybe get 2-4 pcs to keep them safer-hopefully gar can remember old friends and know those are friends, not food.

Seriously, where should I shop at?
