First checked out 6th Avenue Aquarium.

Didn't dig how they kept the shrimp in "Critter Keepers" with no circulation or whatsoever , just a piece of anacharis for them to hang on. Lots of dead guys hanging out in there. Also, they labeled these shrimp as Orange Bees. But taking a closer look, they definitely looked like tangerine tigers. At 5.99 each or two for 9.99 it was tempting. But the condition/setup they were in made me pull away from them.
Other then that, the shop resembles an Asian Chinamarket feel , having to catch your own fish.
Cool experience though!

As for AFA. Spent about 2 hours in there while the Gf shopped around! Nice to select my Ohko stone pieces! Especially the smaller pieces!
It's like a candy shop lol.

I ended up picking up some lamp eye killis since I have trouble finding them locally. 6 @ $3.49 each normal $3.99 but got them to give me a little discount!
Fun store with lots of planted tank selection!

Heart was beating thinking about picking up my first ADA tank, but gf pulled me away :p

So much fun though!

I leave this Saturday Morning. And I'm worried about these guys :p I asked for an extra bag of water so they can hang in a bucket for the time being >____<"
(Crossing my fingers) hope they'll be fine.

And picking up my tiger shrimp tmr.

Where do I contact Tom?? Lol

An thanks really for everything!

My trip wouldn't have been worth the while if it wasn't for your guys help!
