Gadsden, AL-Lang's Tropical Fish

This shop is actually a bit south of Gadsden on 431; on the left if you're traveling south. No plants, but absolutely pristine tanks, many unusual fish varieties, saltwater to freshwater selection is about 50/50. Prices seemed good also. They occasionally sell hardware on eBay under the ID of blang366606z4q. They have an absolutely monstrous tank (to me anyway) in the shop housing what looks to be a full grown pacu with a couple of other equally large tankmates. Very nice family run business. They also have a web site (Lang's Tropical Fish) but it's not very active and I get the idea that they don't have the time to fool with it much.


55 gallon - Hi-Res — 2wpg CF lighting; pressurized CO2; 18 watt Turbo-twist UVS; Eheim Pro II 2028; eco-complete; 2 Pearl Gouramis; 7 Harlequin Rasboras; 3 Otocinclus catfish
10 gallon — lo-tech; 1.8 wpg DIY CF light; no CO2; Aquaclear mini; Schultz substrate; java fern; java moss; 7 Neon Tetras; 1 flame dwarf gourami

Lang's Tropical Fish

I agree this is one of the nicest fish stores I have ever been in. Worth driving a couple of hours to get to. I have been there one time and they were very busy. Lots of fish choices. Good prices.

I was at Lang's yesterday - they've got a huge amount of Java fern in now, and I spotted a banana plant (not sure of the Latin for that one) - and the website won't be back up, but they're on Facebook now.
