I live in Arcadia. I agree that A+ aquarium in Temple City is a great shop for freshwater. I think that pasadena tropical fish is better overall, but his focus is not really on plants, he has a bigger salt water and reef customer base. Pasadena Tropical has a really nice selection of 8 to 20 gallon cubes that are very well priced. He also has some nice electric blue rams, cardinals, and rasbora sp. available. The two stores are really not that far apart, so from azusa, just stop at A+ first, then go up Rosemead to Colorado and head west for like 2 miles and you will be @ Pasadena Tropical.
