Brian,

Where do you go for supplies as far as LFS? I remember Fishman being much better, but it seems that they've cutback on supplies since I was last there. I still try and go there to give them the business. I think I am going to check out AquariumCenter in Clementon, NJ this weekend. I also plan to check out eastcoastaquatics in Prospect Park, PA.

I gotta join the Filstar Pimp Club. I'm rockin an XP3

I like a couple of stores. Petsmart and Greenbank aquarium. I have also bought from the Fishman. Another really nice store just opened in Newark called Premium Aquatics. But I think the best store anywhere near us is That Pet Place. You can't beat their prices locally and they are really large (like BJ's). The only thing is that they are about 1 to 1 1/2 hours away in Lancaster, PA.

http://www.thatpetplace.com/

If you have never been there you have to check it out. Plan a day trip to Lancaster. They have a large fish room that also includes a room dedicated to freshwater plants.

I just went to eastcoastaquatics yesterday. All nice folks. They have some really nice stuff. I picked up some Madagascar Lace. Here's to hoping it works. My wife went to college in Elizabethtown, PA in the heart of Lancaster so I know the trip well. Not a bad drive at all. Plus there is a Fuddruckers by the outlets so that is also a plus

Where does everybody get their CO2 refilled? I don't want to trade out my nice bottle for a dumpy one thats got slag and junk all over it from welders at the welding shops.
