driftwoodhunter You'll find they've improved since last year - larger selection, MUCH cleaner tanks and store, too. On Mondays they do a BOGO on any fish under $5.00.

I do remember you and the fat goldfish! Glad to hear they are doing better. Kinda like human, they have to watch what they eat in the winter, too!

Other than that all we have is a Petsmart, although there are a few mom & pop fish stores in Roanoke, too.
I've actually been to that pet store and thought them pretty good. Last time I was there they did have kuhli loaches, but I haven't been back to check in like a year or so. I need to go check them out again when I'm up in the are in a few weeks. Thanks for the tip!

Unfortunately, no. I'm down near Martinsville, but I went to college in Blacksburg. I get up there from time to time to visit friends still in college and professors. Know any good stores in the area? Literally all I have here is Petsmart and Petco. I'm looking for some kuhli loaches.

the.koi.maiden Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! Unfortunately I'm in southern VA so the drive to Richmond would be a hefty one. I'm much closer to North Carolina than anything else. Sometimes I feel like I'm in a fishkeeping desert as I can't get good plants or fish here.

I'm loving the pictures of tanks in the low-tec section! It's inspiring to know that beautiful tanks can be made that way!
