Don't go to Boston pets unless you want angel fishes. It's a mom and pop store with your basic chain store fish selection. Hardly any plants. Check out unique aquaria in Woburn. Call first to "make an appointment". Pretty much is there way of guaranteeing someone will be at the store not out making an airport run or ups run. Lovely pets in Quincy. The pet shop in Allston (kinda gross tanks and very ehhhhhh not recommended lol) tropic isle in Framingham. There's also another in newton that I never been too.
Patience once drove a man insane
Thanks for your time
