I haven't seen many nano fish at Fish Den or Neptunes.

Fish Den had pygmy cories, but I didn't see any the last time I was there.

I'll vouch for Aqua Imports. Everything I purchased from there has done very well.

It's basically a couple blocks from my house. It's at the intersection of S Boulder Rd and Centaur Village Dr, on the south east side of the intersection past the Conoco.

Best local fish store

I like Todds on E. Hampden for most items. They even maintain a decent plant selection. He will trade with you, that helps a lot. Sam also keeps a good marine collection. Go see the octopus, its cute.

The Fish Palace likes to keep unusual and larger fish. If you are looking for four different types of wolf fish, or three types of arawanas, visit him. Andy takes good care of his fish.

Tanks: 2@100, 2@75 12@55, 5@40, 2@30, 30@29, 45@20, 10@10, auto water change system, all planted, endangered and extinct in the wild fish, many C.A.R.E.S list, lots and lots of angels, discus and anything challenging. Currently have many Killifish (Blue Gularis & 6 other types). My hobby is changing water.... +koi pond, planted outdoor tanks in garden.

they are priced a bit higher, but the stock is usually very good quality.

Neptune's and Catfish Charlie's are probably my two favorites. I've gotten good fish at both and good plants at Neptune's. I quit shopping at Todd's after being there 3 different times and seeing fish that were covered in Ick, but no signs or lights off. I've been in to Fish Den multiple times and have gotten equipment and plants, but not fish yet. Plant selection is usually pretty basic, but good.

Just moved here from FL and have only been to D&G in FoCo. I'm looking forward to checking out the shops you guys are talking about, it's odd coming from the south where there's a fish store on every corner!

Hey!check out about fish! Most likely not what you had in Florida. they are good peeps and they have new stuff every week . They will also order whatever you want if they do not have in stock! With no obligation to buy or cash up front.

Sounds good, I'll have to plan a trip down there one day soon. They have a good plant selection as well?
