Hey, nice to meet you both!
I have to agree with Tony on Aquatropics - the only one on his list that I've visited. Although, advice aside, I picked up some interesting plants there, and they had much better selection of fish than anyplace in Tallahassee.
In Tally, I like the PetCo fish dept. over the other choices, if only because their plants are not crawling with snails, and the sales people I've talked with actually keep aquariums at home. Jack there told me they will other less common fish. Since their shipment will include at least 6, the customer can choose which ones or none to buy. No shipping charges and if you don't like them, don't buy them. I'm thinking of getting some dwarf cichlids, but have been reluctant to do mail order, so this is sounding good.
Don't know if all PetCos do that though.
It's just a box of rain....
