Coming out to AZ with a fish mission: need some local advice.

My buddy is getting married this summer and he asked me to set up a tank for him for the wedding. The wedding will be near Apache Junction. Can anyone recommend some LFS's around there? The tank will become property of the bride's little brother after the wedding. This is one of the most unusual and interesting things I've ever done. Of course, I need to walk him through tank cycling and all that, so I'll be prepping in advance.

Closest one with a good fish selection would be Pets Inc.

I might not need a great selection actually. The fish list is stuff that's easy to find, I'd just like a place that has a good rep for healthy fish.

I would second Pets Inc. it is only about 6 blocks from my house and is definitely the best in the area for healthy fish and plants. I would not buy equipment from them as their prices are high on those items.

When you are down here, shoot me a message. We can get a beer.

As for fish health they would be tops on the list, and closest. Aquatouch has a limited selection of fish in comparision but top notch on quality and health.
