I don't see how they are able to sell livestock at such low prices. I am seriously going to see if there is someway that I can purchase some fish and bring it back with me to atlanta. Thanks for pointing that store out to me.

The price on the dicus is cheap but I don't believe the quality is that good. I may be wrong since I'm not into discus, I was just basing it on color. There's a lot of breeders in L.I. that you can buy direct and you can get all different kinds of strands. If you look in the back of the magazine, I think the initial is FAMA, I forget the full title, you should see a listing of breeders.

Check out Fishtown U.S.A. on Northern Blvd and Francis Lewis Blvd. If you're driving from Whitestone...15 minutes no traffic?

Then if you're coming over the Van Wyck...right on the corner of Northern Blvd and _____. Sorry, I forget the name of the street, but it's one small block away from Northern and Main Street. Not too much plants here though, better off with Fishtown U.S.A.

Lissette I'm not too familiar with lfs in Queens that cater to planted tanks, except for 2, Paradise Aquarium, located in Ridgewood, near Fresh Pond Road. And Aquatic Creations, which is near the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, but close to Sunnyside Queens.

If you just want any lfs, I'm sure that there are plenty around the neighborhood, just check the Internet Yellow Pages, and do a search.
