I've given up on Fish Bowl in Stamford (even though I live two minutes away). Twice now I've asked them to order something for me, but they never called me back. I guess they're doing so well, they don't need my business. Purrr-fect Pets in Milford is OK, but I don't feel like driving up there...unless I'm bored.
For plants I use aquariumplants.com, for discus I use discusmadness.com (In NJ...just over an hour drive and I love seeing all the discus), and PetCo in Norwalk for tetras/algae eaters/food.
