Just moved from DFW to Chicagoland - any LFS I have to hit?
As the title says-
I've done the obligatory search the internet/yellow pages and cruise around Chicagoland and haven't seen a single store worth going back to for FW fish/plants.
Old Town was nice, small and pricey. There were a couple others with some hidden gems swimming around, but wouldnt go back on purpose. Been to Schaumburg, Skokie/North Shore, Lombard, Bolingbrook, near Tinley and it seems all places in between. Back when I used to work for The Cichlid Exchange selling fish, I had a lot of clients out this way, but they seem to have gone the way of many stores.
I'm not sure if I've missed something or if it is what it is around here. I did see a post about Hoffer's and another place in Milwaukee that I must see- I'm fine with driving to a great store. I saw no other posts in the Illinois section raving about any stores.
Interested in FW fish/plants- mostly cichlids, catfish, loaches, predatory fish.
Thank you in advance.
