The aquariumplusonline.com doesn't link to your store, which is why I questioned if your shop was still open.

Do you have a working link, or could you post your store hours?

Thanks
My web designer still woring on my web site, the web site should be up soon, thank you for checking and asking.

I brought about 15 pot of the true dwarf hair grass here ( this is the kind it won't grow more than 1.5") I had lots of people ask me about them before, so I brought them down. Thank you

The true hair grass is awesome stuff i have a pot i got from Jimmy yesterday. It will look awesome when it fills in.

The store is still really cool lots of awesome tanks. Lots of cool inverts like CPO's, Taiwan shrimp (really red color i believe i remember) CRS, hong kong bee shrimp, Sulawesi Cardinals all sorts of awesome shrimp.

We stopped by Aquarium Plus today-- I wanted to ask Jimmy about the possibility of getting a small, rimless tank sometime in the future and was surprised to see he already had some, just in from Hong Kong!

I paid about $60 for the two in the picture below. (Rimless tanks with no shipping charges! Who'd have thought?) They came in cardboard with the dimensions printed on them, so I included it in the picture for your reference. I think the cube would look pretty nice as a saltwater nano. The other one will be planted, of course.

The glass is a little thicker than ADA tanks of a similar size, but the quality looks great and I have no complaints at all. He also had the manufacturer include black, "waffle" plastic on the bottom of the tanks so you don't have to buy a separate mat for the tank to sit on. (If you don't like it, you could easily remove it, but it seems like a good idea to me.)

Sorry for the mess in the pictures. We're getting ready to move to a new apartment and things are all over the place. Probably not the best time to buy two new tanks but I couldn't resist.

Good stuff, as usual.

Thanks for sharing this tundrafour! I always plan on getting down there and never make it. It's becoming more and more enticing with every update on what they are carrying. This place is becoming the best store in town!

I have to admit, the photos of this store earlier in the thread from 2009 make me feel nostalgic.

Frank, what do you think about the store now(after the new racks and tanks) and I think you will like what am I going to do, I am going to focus even more on shrimps and plants (aquascaping) I change my first rack to a shrimps only rack,and guess what I use for substrates?

Amazonia I bet!

I like the focus and niche appeal for your store with the new setup, I think it will make the store even more popular.

On a side note, did everything in that last package I sent you come alright?

just curious, the store's website is "under construction" and given the owner's earlier comments, i have to ask - is the store still open?
