Update on plants from Fintastic:
they got rid of Alex (plant guy that was also really good with cichlids) for whatever reason, so now a younger guy is handling the planted area of the store. He's definitely got it looking a lot better than what I was used to seeing, though.
There are still quite a few "typical" plants there, but he's been bringing in some cool new (and healthier-looking) plants.

With that being said, their prices are still a little on the steep side, in my opinion. But at least they got rid of those Red tinfoil barb-looking fish and cichlids that were at the end of the plant aisle. That whole bowfront tank was infested with something awful, like red spot disease or some other ulcers (those fish looked bad when I first saw them and then terrible like 3 weeks later).
