F22 - I was in your store on Saturday. I love the selection you have, and the setup. You definitely had much more than I anticipated. I was told you will have assassin snails later this week? I already picked up a few, but I may be in the market for more. Also, I didn't notice a live plant section (the wife was hanging on my leg like a nagging child though, so I may have missed it). Do you guys have one?

Guys.....definitely worth checking this store out!!

im actually taking denis

I could have sworn the blue neon rasboras were like $3 ea which was why i was considering them myself. There were lyretails that were like $7 in the same tank... pretty but not something i would get personally. also i think these guys are mislabeled as they have a blue streak that runs from midbody down to the lower part of their tail fin which is not what a blue neon would look like... hmmm LFS are not reliable with common names....

would love to swing by Rt4 and several other shops in the area.

I actually got 10 blue neon rasboras from them for $40 about a month ago. If you buy a school you can usually get a discount.




Do you guys have any space for the trip?

i only have a two seater but we're asking people if they can drive so more people can go. The last time we went as a party of 8, the shop owners were able to offer discounts since we were buying out entire tanks that were in stock LOL

Is anyone interested in heading out there? Im after one fish, which is the pitbull/bulldog pleco for $6. He's all nose and little body. haha.
