Out of curiosity, where do you go for fish and supplies? Boston?
Underwater World in the Silver City Galleria in Taunton is the closest decent fish store, selection can be hit or miss but the prices are good. Uncle Neds in Millis has great fish selection, and a website with new arrivals listed. Tropic Isle in Framingham has an obscenely good SW fish selection and the best supply of plants around that I've found so far, can be somewhat costly though. Lovely Pets in Quincy can also be worthwhile.
Petsmart and Petco are closer for supplies as necessary.
