I went to Fishtown USA, man did they get me ! I guess it was obvious how new I was and $500+ I walked out of there with just a 45G Tall and a Stand. All the equipment I bought and substrate, I wound up getting rid of so I wound up spending a hell of a lot more. To make matters worse any time I went back (From Astoria, mind you) I would get the only attitude from these people. One female called me a "jack ass" under her breath because I asked her and someone else the same question, if it was answered the first time I wouldnt have had to ask again! They do actually have a nice selection of fish. But it wasn't worth the drive for me.
There is another place by Elmhurst Hospital, I think 76st and Woodside av. The guy is nice and the prices are stupid cheap compared to Adventure Aquarium. Example: $18 for an Electric Blue Jack Dempsey VS AA's $59 for a crappy not-looking-so-good EBJD. Same size. I've wasted so much Gas,Money,Time and patience now that I think of it. I still dont have a Planted Tank lol.
