Plants at House of Tropicals
I just visited H.O.T. for the first time in a few years. (I live near Salisbury) It looked like they recently got a shipment of live plants. They had several tanks filled with swords, stem plants, anubias, java ferns, and more. They also had what appeared to be shrink-wrapped live plants on a shelf. Everything looked fresh and healthy.
The livestock was alright. They had a decent selection of fish. A few red cherry shrimp, nerite snails, crabs, and other invertebrates. A few of the tanks however had sick or dead fish, others looked a bit dingy, but overall the store appeared to be much better maintained than on my previous visits.
