I have to agree with dul3ce about "About Fish" (I still refer to it as "Sherman Tank" too). At least here in the north end.
I did get some Anubias from there when they had their last sale.

That grew in my 40b. Next time (early next week probably) it will be more pink. My BuildMyLED is bringing the color out in my plants. I like Neptunes, good service there.

I agree about Neptunes.

I'll third that. I stopped by last Thursday 12/5 and they have a pretty good selection of plants and fresh/saltwater fish. TONS of equipment/tanks for sale too. Good prices to boot. They have some coupons in the Valpak mail/website.

It's worth your time to stop by and see what they have to offer.

Anyone checked out Jurassic Pets in Thornton yet? I just heard a few days ago that Catfish Charley has joined up with them.

They are just up the street from my house. Have not had time to stop in yet though.



I visited Aqua imports today. They were still unloading fish, but they had some BEAUTIFUL apisto viejita

Aqua imports is in boulder. There is that new shop up in Ft. Collins called "the fish crew" that looks amazing. I have not been there yet, but the pictures they have of the shop on facebook are pretty cool

I was at Neptune's about a month ago and was very impressed with their fish selection. Lots of things I hadn't seen in a store before, like Endlers and some fancy rainbow fish with yellow tipped fins (of course I can't remember the name). And long-finned bristle nose plecos of which I bought one.

Happy to hear about Catfish Charlies/Jurassic Pets. I bought some things from his last store in Lafayette and they've been very healthy/vibrant.

yea, Ron is a super nice guy. His specialty has always been Discus. And if he still does in the new place, what he did in the old he should be able to get you just about anything you need.

I don't think Ron is the owner, but he is/was the owner of Catfish Charlie's. Nice to hear he's back at it. Last time I talked to him, it sounded like he was having some health issues and the long hours as a sole proprietor were really not doing him any favors.
