AFA San Francisco

Just wanted to share with some of the members here pictures of AFA in San Francisco.

I picked up a Do!Aqua 60-F while I was there. Kinda wished I got the ADA 60-F instead. Next time I'm gonna get ADA for sure.

That last pic, wasn't that the main display tank in the front of the store? Do they tear it down?

Wow.

I'd hate to try to net fish out of a couple of those "display" tanks.

I live 5 minutes walking away from AFA. Definitely one of my favorite stores.

The 180p has been torn down and a new scape is on the way. They rescape it every year I think.

Yes, it is the main display tank in the front of the store. I didn't know if it was a new display tank or a torn down tank because it was my first time there. Wish I would of seen that display tank, must be very very nice.

I don't think its an ADA product. Most of their stuffs are ADA product but not all. I would say the store has about 85% ADA, Do!Aqua, and Archaea product and 15% other brands.

Probably that is why they don't have a pricing for fish or plants on those tank. I would hate to fish out some fish from those tanks.

That's an archaea brand LED i think, not the ADA aquasky. Looks very similar though! They were growing that tank out for the longest time using 2 of the archaea led's that everyone is using on this board.
