kev: really just basic stuff in clean tanks with a decent selection. I just have an eclipse 12 gallon right now.
I tried to visit three shops in South Louisville yesterday, apparently one had closed because I didn't see it anywhere around the street address in the phone book, it was a sketchy neighborhood anyway.
The Auburndale Pet Center on New Cut Rd was a little shop with lots of tanks, a bit crowded in the shop but the staff was friendly. They had some really nice looking neons there for only $.99, I might go back to get some in a couple of weeks. They had one tank of guppies, no real special specimens there. Not much in the way of plants, they had a few tanks with some moss, some java fern, a crypt or two. They were the only place I have seen Flourish Excel so I picked up a bottle. The also had a HUGE macaw in the front by the register, biggest I have ever seen. I felt a little bad for it, a bird that big you'd have to have a cage the size of a living room. I hope they let it out sometimes. It's beak was longer than my hand. If you like the big African fish like cichlids you might make a visit, they seemed to have a lot of them.
The third one I drove to was Southside Pet Shop, not too far from Auburndale on Southside Drive. This was a bigger store, smaller than a Petsmart but bigger than most independent pet stores. They had some Koi in a few pond tubs outside and some pretty cute purebred puppies. They also had tons of fish, at least 50 tanks. They had the biggest Panda Corys I've ever seen, but they were priced at $12 each. The Neons were pretty small, especially compared to Auburndale, they were probably a lot younger, priced at $.89. Guppies unremarkable, although they did have a few pretty snakeskin males, I don't really like the snakeskin look though. They had some nice looking Rams, I see why a lot of people pick up a pair as accents to their tank, very pretty fish. They did have a few tanks with plants, some hairgrass that looked pretty good. Other kinds of grass, java ferns, hornwort (of course), some bulbs and crypts. Nothing that looked awesome, but better selection than most places. I did not see much of a supplement section though. They did have a lot of pond supplies if you're keeping a pond.
I still plan to visit Green Tree Pet Shop, maybe later today now that all the crazy fireworks traffic is gone.
