Just Fish is a pretty cool store. I know the owner, his name is Joey. He has a planted display tank as soon as you walk in. They have a lot of healthy fish at reasonable prices while equipment pricing is a little high. Plant selection is minimal. They have 6 rows of fish, one row of tetras, one row of bottom feeders (alot of plecos), 2 rows for cichlids and 1 row for them larger fish (arowanas, flowerhorns, etc.) Once in awhile you will see some cool fishes such as the kerri blue tetras and a few apistos.
Pasadena Tropical Fish has a lot of cichlids and salt water fishes. Fish selection is general but if I remember correctly, they have many plants!
There is also another store that might interest you. It's called "Hacienda Aquatics" on Amar and Hacienda. They have fish that are well taken care of and you will for sure see fish that are nowhere else in the SGV. They also carry algae eating shrimp and fish. Speak to a guy name Chai, he knows what he's talking about and will special order fish for you. Plant selection is minimal as well but you will find alot of anubias here and sometimes riccia.
Hope this information helps and btw.. Welcome to the Forum!
