Apparently things don't change much.
The store is still in disarray, and no plants.
However the lowest pricest Lees triple filter I have seen $4.
Was in Newton recently, saw this place and stopped in.

Owner was a nice enough guy, was real patient with my two young sons.
One of whom fell in love with a blue beta. Then I spied a gold nugget pleco.
About 2 inches long, $30 (Foster & Smith is $39 plus shipping).
He claimed to have it in the shop for 5 months. I scooped it up. Seems to be real healthy and is doing fine as is the beta. The store is in a state of disarray. I didn't see any plants. He talked about doing commercial installations and maintenance.
I don't see how he makes a living but hey who else gets to have their hobby as a job.
