Aquatics unlimited is a good choice for blackworms. I used to get them there all the time.

Why not just pass the business on to someone else?

I heard the old man wanted to retire, and no one would pick up where he left off. Anyhow, someone told me that if you pay with cash it's an extra 25% off and they will wheel and deal with you. Going tomorrow morning.

I picked up a used 20L tank, and then a 30" dual t5no corallife fixture for $15 at Hoffer's today. The fish I bought were 25% off with cash, but the equipment wasn't. They are closing for good in the first week of December. Also, they have a 2215 Eheim without hoses for $75, media and all. It looks sound, if anyone is interested.
