With all of the bussiness that had gone out of business now we have lost yet another and it was one of my favorite stores. Tropical Fish Wold will be going out of business . Even though there store was never the cleanest or the biggest I still always like their selection. There owner (Mike) is a very nice guy and was always able to help me along with his staff. Even if you did not like the store it was a good place to buy fish and sometimes plants. Now all that are left are Congressional (Expensive but friendly), House of Tropicals ( Great prices and selection also very helpful), and SuperPetz (Terrible ownership but has a great selection).
I hope they all do ok.
At least you have legit LFS. The only one that's even close to me (a 20 minute drive, even) is unsanitary, has a terrible selection, is expensive, sells one or two plants and always smells like pot. PetsMart and Pet Supermarket are all I have...well, aside from Walmart (ahaha). Sorry to hear though, broseph.
