I'm in manhattan. What do you have in mind for a club?

Would be cool to meet some fellow planted tank addicts and trade some plants. Not a huge selection at the LFS here.

Any place around here carry cork bark? I know Dave's has some, but it's limited and never gets new pieces. Maybe topeka? lawrence? I know salina doesn't have any...

I go to wichita once a month for business and have found that Sea Dreams off of Harry st is amazing. They have great pricing and a ginormous selection and assortment of plants, fish, coral, tanks and everything in between. I highly recomend you to stop by and check them out. The owner is full of information, I think they call her momma or something, shes a "big" white lady, and super nice.

I keep hearing good things about Sea Dreams, I was planning to take a trip down there but this fricken ice storm knocked out my power for 5 days. And now we have a good amount of snow on the ground. Will have to wait till after christmas most likely.

Manhattan Aquarium Supply is junk, the owner is knowledgeable but he is very very rude to customers. Pets N Stuff doesn't really have a great selection of fish, and they aren't very experienced in that field as well. Seems like out of town is the way to go.

Scaley Daves would be awesome if they carried more fish stuff, which I have heard will hopefully be soon.

Not really, we sucked for plants and fish as well. Although we did get a wide variety of plants in, rather then the 50 different types of swords that Aquarium gets.

He has a great fish selection I will give him that, and a HUGE selection of OVERPRICED aquarium hardware.

And his reptiles? Don't get me started!

To be completely honest, you can find supplies/plants online cheaper than ANY pet stores locally.

Want to see a owner not running a store properly? Walk in and go to reptiles and look what the owner is doing on the computer - playing video games while customers are walking around in the store.. Brilliant!

Best would be to talk with the manhattan aquarium guy I guess? I do frogs and 2 reef tanks, one is a 72 bow front in salina and one is here but only a 20 and I am redoing it all....

I keep some live plants in my frog tanks, riccia, java moss, water hyacinth, etc.
