Like many of you I'm picky about where I buy fish, and of course that means I never buy anything from the shops in the international district, especially because I hate arguing with the staff just to get the darn thing sold at the real price.
I've been into Aquarium Plus five times in the last month or so, and simply because of Jimmy, the owner, the shop has become a go to place for equipment and fish.
He's willing to sell you aquasoil by the pound- he actually opened a bag for me. He sells ceramic bio media for $6/lb. and all the rest of his prices are untouchable. I've had some long conversations with him and he is a true hobbiest who wants to support other hobbiests.
I bought 6 galaxy rasboras that are doing great, and the last time I was in I picked up some cheap algea srimp. I've also bought some blyxa, bacopa, and pearl grass. All great stuff at great prices, though the bacopa had some algea but nothing awful.
So give him a try.
12th and Jackson on the south side of the street.
I think he's closed on tuesday.
