I'm in sunrise, fl. The best place for plants around here is All Pets Emporium. The staff there know their stuff and are very helpful. The tanks in their store are always clean and the variety of fresh water fish is larger than normal. They do have a large selection of salt water fish too. Does anyone know of any clubs to join for fish keeping in the area? I already belong to the aquatic society that was posted earlier I believe, as well as the forum AquariaCentral.
