Question LFS All for Fish?

Hello,

Looking to move to Corvallis/Albany area soon and wondered if anyone has had any experience with the LFS All for Fish in Albany? Are they more freshwater or saltwater oriented? Good selection of live plants? Any info appreciated. Thanks!

Both salt and fresh are equal, they have a big fresh water display and reef display. As I said before, their fish isn't the best quality. And you can tell its not well taken care of. Also not a huge selection of plants. But you won't find any good plant lfs in corvallis or Albany, gotta go to Salem or Eugene or Portland

Oh, hadn't checked these guys out before so didn't know. I'm coming from Portland so I guess I'll be down grading. I'll probably just go to Eugene anyway. Do you recommend Nautilus? Heard they had decent reviews.

Coral Reef in Salem is a good place. I have a good friend that works there. They have a good FW selection and almost all their fish come from the same supplier that The Wet Spot get theirs from so you know they have good stock. And Salem is much closer than Eugene.

Tell Chris I sent you.

Coral reef is cool, but the staff at aquatic daycare in Salem is way more knowledgeable about fresh water fish and has bigger selection.
