So how is the selection in Pet Shanty? Do they have plants? I don't think this place is too far from my job either.
If you live near Lincoln, I would htink the Ridgewood store would have more plants than most of these stores combined.
The store is 7 miles from my work in Union and I don't really go down there. Their prices are what i expect for a LFS. I haven't been there since summer but I don't recall much plants. I bought 3 emperor tetras for $5 a piece. One died and became shrimp food and now that I think about it, they've all perished since then.
On your way there, there's Ocean Gallery 2, which was only s/w but during the summer they were expanding and adding a freshwater selection. Not sure if it's anything like their s/w set up since I haven't been back there in a while.
