Did not know that. I just noticed the other thread about the closing and the information of pets warehouse replacing it. Sorry for the redundant info.

I agree about being able to get stuff from locals. I hope I can get to the point where I may be of more assistace to other hobbyist's.

NYC Club?

Is there an aquarium or planted tank club in NYC? If so please list, otherwise a NYC/LI club would be in order.

Is the auction open to the public or only members. I might stop by if it open to the public.

Its open to the public. Take a look at the website. Non member dues are $5.00, but there is a coupon that allows you in for free. I'd personally help support them for the $5.00 since there is free food/snacks/drinks there.

Pretty epic of them.

Hey Gordon. Looks like I missed the Brooklyn aquarium auction. Regarding discus, there's a club here in the northeast for discus, called the NEDA, a meeting to be held in April. You can go check it out at simplydiscus.com. There are no fees to join, and all are welcome.

Hi Long Islanders,

Im a grower but right now I haven't really been able to grow stuff outside of things like Anacharis and Water Wisteria.

I was pretty bummed when AA closed.

Does anyone know a good place to buy Utah Ice? I use it in my aquarium for keeping things pretty steady and most of my pieces are close to being melted away. I don't really want to buy 50lbs of it over the internet
