Hate to hear of a shop closing.

Thanks for all the info!

GWA is still open as of Sept 16th.

D&G has an awesome selection when they get shipments in! Unfortunately, that isn't too often, but when they are fully stocked I'd guess between 15-20 ten gallon tanks filled. Most are low-med light plants, but they do carry some high light plants.

I literally love my aquarium(s).

That place looks like it's going to be really nice. Now I have something to look forward to when I come out to Colorado again next year. I use to go to Denizens of the Deep many years ago when I would visit and the last few years I have been out there I would stop at D&G(nice store with nice people) but never had anything that I couldn't live without and their plants always looked really bad.

Yea, it does look like it will be a nice place. That was the reason I stopped going to D&G, I found I can get just about everything close to me that I wanted. D&G keeps similar items as Fish den, but are quite a bit farther.

I've also found that D&G has some fairly high prices for at least the fish I've looked for off and on. Like a male peacock gudgeon. They wanted $19 per fish. =/ So I'm just waiting for the ones that another TPT forum member Olive to get old enough to sell her extras. I think I'm on her waiting list. =D Even on their Tuesday fish specials thats a bit pricey i.e. for freshwater only if you buy 2 fish you get the 3rd free.

I just called Great White and they said they are open and just got in a new shipment of fish they are opening right now. Catfish Charlies just closed they were in Lafayette.

Come down to Aqua Imports you can get some not as common moss for half that lol. Although, with moss its best to get it as it arrives (they just got some in) as Algae tends to grow in the little cups pretty quick.

Because of the floods though, they did not get there plant shipment in this past week. I would call and ask when the next shipment is due in before you head down that way.

You just did not pay $10 for Java moss. Did you?
I have tons of Christmas moss in my breeding tank. Come over anytime and take a starter patch.

Do it! I got some from my buddy here (sumer) and it looks great, I already spread it to all of my tanks and to some people on here.
