Exclamation Souther California's LFS + Fountains

I was reading the other thread about Southern CAlifornias LFS, and i saw FountainsAquariums, a store which is aobut 30 minutes away from our house. I was wondering if it has a good supply of plants, like Java moss,dwarf hairgrass and Hygrophilia, at a good price. Also do they happen to have dwarf puffer fish? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated

You guys rock!!!

Pufferpeep,
What kind of hygro are you looking for? If you're looking for polysperma, there's only one store I know of that will sell it (It's a banned plant). If you want difformis, I can give you that and java moss.

I have seen dwarf puffers there, but not reliably. Aquatic Warehouse definitely keeps the dwarf puffers stocked, and their plants are OK. AW will also special order fish for you if it's on the stock list but they don't usually buy it.

Me: Ill have to try Aquatic Warehouse. Today im heading up to the Petsmart in Encinitas, they say they are gettng their fish stocked today, so keep your fingers crossed that they get dwarf puffers!

Mike, thanks , that was really helpful!! You tank is coming along nicely

That's good. Because I stopped at Fountains for you and they didn't have any. Where did you get them?

The last time I checked Fountains. Their Dwarf Hair Grass was dead and a ball of Java Moss was running about $5.99
