Man Just Fish is closing

I went to Just Fish today, and there was a notice they were closing their doors, on the "up" side everything was 40% off. Now where is the closest "good" fiss store in lexington, am I going to have to settle for Incredipet?

My wife and I just swung by there today and saw the sign. It's a real bummer, I've known Tony for several years. Does anybody have any suggestions on where to shop now? I've been to East End Aquatics in Louisville, but that's quite a drive for folks in Lexington.

There are several good fish/plant/reef stores up here in northern Ky., but it is like a different world up here than it is down there anyway.

Please don't make hybrid endler/guppies, and if you do, feed them to something big and nasty. It is already hard enough to find pure endlers, no reason to make it any worse.

I was shocked when I went there a few days ago and found it closed. If there isn't a local shop in Lexington, then I guess were all going to have to use online vending. We here in Lexington should start a monthly team order. What do you all say?

Tony is selling off his equipment if anybody local is interested. I just picked up a 120 and a 125 with filters for $1100. His e-mail is tony@justfish.biz if anybody is interested.

I'm all for getting a group together to place orders. There's no where close to get good fish in my experience.

Just the starting pre-stag, but we need to figure out how to plan and manage a local area online ordering plan. With the economy like it is, this could actually be set up all over USA and even the world. This could save us a lot of money. I think we need to start small, say a test first. Everybody needs to be within driving distance of each group. There needs to be a group leader. We should probably set up some sort of communication that is linked to everyone in the group. We would probably need to set up a list of the most common items that we would want to order once a month or so.
I would like some idea's and some leaders to step up and help with this idea.
Shoot it down if you don't think it would work. Just voice your idea's would be great.

I don't really have the time to lead on something like this, but I'd be glad to pitch in when I can. If somebody wants to lay out some concrete ideas, I would be more than willing to give feedback.

Maybe we should start a new thread under KY and have everyone around the area start listing everything the usually order or buy on a monthly bases. Then we can get a count and see what the best prices are and what site to order from for quantity orders. This well safe on shipping and maybe get a better price too.

I'm not for sure if I'm interested in dry goods, like food and dechlor, I buy most of that in bulk online myself, one years supply at a time. What is the best way to go about ordering livestock and plants as a group though? Is that something we could generate enough interest in to make it monthly?

It doesn't have to be monthly. I think we just need enough interest to get a big enough order to help with the expense of shipping etc. Maybe fish food, cleaning supplies. Tools. I don't know. It is just a thought. Maybe it won't work.

Check out the plants at the Southland Incredipet. They'd always been pretty lousy, but when I was in there for dog food last week, I was pleasantly surprised. The guy working in the fish section said that he and another guy who work there grow the plants in their home tanks
