Brick&Mortar stores in VA

We can all find the chain stores pretty easily but the smaller private stores are a little more difficult. This is a list of brick and mortar stores that I have either been to and would recomend or have heard good things about. I thought that a post like this would be helpful in the Virginia Forums. I have included addresses and websites when available. If you know any others or have experiences to share feel free to comment. I hope I'm not breaking any rules. I'm not trying to advertise for anyone. Just sharing information since this seems to be a question that is asked often.

Just saying Annandale super pets shut down. Really sad but true. They used to have a huge selection but now in the New, smaller store, they don't sell fish anymore. ...

I knew they had moved but didn't realize they no longer carried fish. I removed them from the list for now.

This place looks pretty promising. I have added them to the list and I will try to stop by next time I'm in Richmond.

Now would be a great time to visit Aquatic Obsession/The Cozy Clownfish, by the way. Apparently they're shutting down their storefront, and their freshwater stock is pretty heavily discounted.

Super Petz in Annandale may not have as big of a store front, but they do still have a large supply of tanks and equipment. Check their website or give them a call and they will arrange for you to view what they have at their warehouse.

When it comes to Freshwater, they do have interesting fish from time to time, but it's rather rare. However, their saltwater fish are actually pretty nice looking. The owner from what I heard is a marine biologist.

New aquarium store in NOVA....Quantum Reefs, in Springfield. Mostly reef now but the owner has plans to bring in freshwater inhabitants and do one or two planted display tanks. Has rosewood and iwagami rocks. Maybe if we give him enough business he'll keep the FW area going strong.

That store has been there for a while, but has always been saltwater only, Thats why I didn't include them. I'll have to keep my eye on them and see if they get that freshwater going.
