I second this. The plant selection here is unsurpassed in Nassau County in my experience.

Had some problems with a fungus problem on some guppies I bought here, but other fish I bought were fine. And for common fish, they are a tad more expensive than the chain petstores.

But overall, its the plants that really shine, given how difficult it is to find a good source of aquatic plants in general. I'm a fan.
