Tabwyo,

I Just moved to Riverton three month ago. I am disappointed in the fish shops here; so far I have been to the one in Riverton, and lander, and two in Casper. None of them have any plants.

It's been about ten years since I lived in Casper. If I remember right the only decent pet store was in Sunrise Shopping Center, and it was just slightly above WalMart in quality.

You won't find a better plant store than The Planted Tank Swap and Shop section.

Petco has arrived in Casper and they have a better than most plant selection (so far). They are my first choice. I stay away from the other pet shops and aquarium shops here in town.

I haven't tried mail order yet. I'm still nursing what I have after moving from LA.

Another one here in Cheyenne, Ian, are you still trying to get your club up and going? Ive been at this for almost a year. Some early problems and trying to work on a budget but having fun. Ive got a 55 planted (wish I had known the 75's work better) But Im looking for maybe a used tank to get another up and running. Let me know.

Lot of views, but not many posts. I've heard from one, anybody else out there from Wyoming?

Wow that brings back some memories. I left casper in 98 and used to go there when I was a kid. Sounds like somebody in casper needs to take another shot at opening an lfs there. If only the chains are in town people get tired of the poor selection and then start looking for a more specialized shop. Well at least thats how it is in Anchorage..which is why the shop I work at is doing so awesome.

WOW I posted here in March and there hasn't been another Wyoming thread or comment. Planted tanks must be dead in Wyoming! HAHA its like the stretch of wasteland between Casper and Shoshoni!

You always think that after this next project your tanks will be complete...there is no 'complete' in this hobby. There will always be something new

I've been around, and have a thread going in the vivarium subforum that I add to pretty often. Beyond that I haven't seen too much.

Yup, Cheyenne. If anyone is around I have a grip of Water Hyacinth that needs a new home.

Back in Laramie to stay. In the process of seeing up my fish room. It'll end up being 800-1000 gallons when its all said and done. Plants, shrimp, tropicals, and south American cichlids mostly.. When you're on the way through on the I80 corridor look me up.
