Phishy biz used to have good variety of stock on cichlids and normal fish, and they still have better variety than anyone else, but they lost their primary breeder and it shows in their stock. I have talked to both so I dont know which side to believe, except I still know the primary breeder. What do you mean long haul, I drive all the way from Kissimmee.
Aquaria Studio has a small freshwater selection but they usually have some oddballs that are worth looking at. their saltwater selection is pretty cool, and they have the usual ubiquitous fish along with some oddball gems as well. Their prices are high, although with their location, can you hardly blame them?
The Petland in Waterford lakes is actually pretty good(ducks the thrown objects), i have found some good stuff there from time to time. They have a planted tank in the back which they sell fish out of and i am not sure they know what they have. I bought four small electric blue rams for $4.99 each a few months back.
If you are looking for local water Discus I can put you in touch with a local breeder in my area who raises them in our water PH 8.3 last time I checked. I have had mine for over a year with zero casualties and sickness and his prices are about 1/4 what you pay in a store. Just be prepared to talk for awhile lol.
