Central Mass?

I am dying out here! Feel so lonely!

Any other planted tankers out this way??? The LFS selection is non existent and pretty sick of the chain stores, so anyone interested in trades or just something?

I'm in Western Mass and found an excellent LFS .... it's in Northampton if you're over in the pioneer valley.

Plant selection is pretty decent ... everything I wanted was there (including at least two types of shrimp). Store isn't big, but the owners are very knowledgable! You can always call ahead, but everyone I've known has been quite pleased with this place opening up.

Also from western mass, and agree that aquaview design is great. Its my new go-to. They have the best selection in the area imo, and the prices are fair.
