Central FL - Orlando *new store*

We are getting a new LFS in town. One of our club members is opening her own business so finally we will have a place to go in town, not to mention they will be more attentive than some other places that don't care about who walks in the door asking questions. I'll post the details as I get them or she may jump in here as well.

Thanks Henry!
DarkWater Aquatic's projected opening date is April 27-28.
Located on 3589 S Orange Ave, Orlando, FL 32806. Just 10 minutes from I4 and downtown Orlando.
Will be specializing in an assortment of freshwater biotopes including blackwater, planted, Iwagumi, Dutch style, and beginner setups. I plan on carrying monster fish such as arowana, shrimps, common and rare freshwater fish as well as affordable CO2 and driftwood. Most importantly, we will have tons of aquatic plants at reasonable prices.
Feel free to contact me regarding any further information or suggestions.
Thanks!

Woo hoo! I'll be there. I've got a 150-gallon tank I need to set up from scratch. I'll buy from you rather than online. You'll reap the rewards of my procrastination. Aside from that I'm just incredibly excited about a freshwater-centric store opening up locally.

It's 2 lights south of Michigan, the plaza on the East side of the Drennen light. I'm doing most of my announcements and updating on the Facebook group, Aquatic Gardeners of Florida.

I saw your cichlid question on Facebook. I'd consider small types and rarer types you can't find elsewhere in addition to the boring same-old ones you see everywhere.

Awesome that some (or all? Not sure) of your display tanks will be dirted!!

Excellent. Can't wait to see something more "specialized" that's not a marine system.

Just came in today and I love this store! Got some cherries and some awesome fish for my nano tank. Worth the bit of a drive for sure!
