What are the prices like? Does Pacific carry a good assortment of plants too?

FYI:
fishtown u.s.a. up in mahwah has pygmae cories... Give them a call to check though before you make a trip out.

Yup....almost every time I've gone. 2 for $7.

And I've seen them in Ridgewood Aquarium as well. I think $2.99.....can't remember for sure.

Pacific has boat loads of plants but like fuze said - they are not cheap. Nothing is particularly cheap at Pacific. But their selection is second to none.

If you had to go to Fishtown USA, which one, NJ or Queens? Have to make up my mind quickly or my husband won't go! I've been to Queens last year nice place and good selection of plants at the time. What else is near Fishtown NJ?

Ridgewood aquarium, Pet goods (also on Route 17), Route 4 aquarium and then Absolutely fish a few minutes away. This has been our usual tour route when there... all a few minutes away from oneanother.

In terms of choices of selection I would choose the fish town in NJ. They have a biggest selection of fishes including plants, but the plants I bought there last time had a lot of snails, scuds,etc.

The one in queens is more clean.
