aquarium adventure today in maryland

Hey well today me and my mom were bord and we decided to go to the maryland fish stores (we live in virginia)

Heres my review of the stores we visited

Tropical Fish World
AMAZINGGGGG they had so many fish and so many display tanks
good prices, not to many people to get help though
oh check online before you go, if they just had a sale (like when we were there) they will be sort of empty on the more uncommon fihs, but they were still amazinggg

Congressional Aquarium
Looked almost brand new, i cant find a web site so just check on yellow pages or something. They had some cool fish. I didnt really like that on almost every aisle there was atleast one tank of died fish ....
THey had ballon belly blue german rams which ive never seen before, but aton of the tanks had the dreaded ich(or ick i dont know) grossss, there plants were sort of cruddy aswell, and ovr priced!

They hardly had any of the basic fish, like guppys mollys tetra, but they had some really cool fresh water goby and there were a tonn of people to help you with.
As for the plants, one word, CHEAP
They had most of them for 49 cents! The potted ones were mostly 3.99 .
THey were out of brine shrimp though bummerrr

Ok so if i had to choose one of them to go to again
it would deffinatly be Tropical Fish World
haha sorry
but ya i would probly leave out the other 2
