I too am going to miss Tony. I've been getting some things from Animal House and Incredipet (fortunately there are a couple of guys there who are in the hobby). But, they just don't have and can't get the plants that I want. I get my discus from a breeder so that's not a biggie. My dry goods I get from who ever has them.
It's sad to think just ten years ago we had Best Pets (where I used to work at the Gardenside location), Lansdowne, and Regency. Now they're all gone I wish I knew why. I know that some of it is bad business practices. But, at least one good one could survive.......

Im running out of excel too. Well have to look for the biggest bottle and order some. I have a empty 2 liter of excel. I wonder how big it comes in. I think they also offer Prime etc for ponds that are a large size and I think it is the same stuff.

|maswan0||Check out the plants at the Southland Incredipet. They'd always been pretty lousy, but when I was in there for dog food last week, I was pleasantly surprised. The guy working in the fish section said that he and another guy who work there grow the plants in their home tanks|

We could get a large bottle of say Excel and Prime and refill our small bottles. etc.

It doesn't have to be monthly. I think we just need enough interest to get a big enough order to help with the expense of shipping etc. Maybe fish food, cleaning supplies. Tools. I don't know. It is just a thought. Maybe it won't work.

|Bowles42||I'm not for sure if I'm interested in dry goods, like food and dechlor, I buy most of that in bulk online myself, one years supply at a time. What is the best way to go about ordering livestock and plants as a group though? Is that something we could generate enough interest in to make it monthly?|

|Joetee||Maybe we should start a new thread under KY and have everyone around the area start listing everything the usually order or buy on a monthly bases. Then we can get a count and see what the best prices are and what site to order from for quantity orders. This well safe on shipping and maybe get a better price too.|

|Bowles42||I don't really have the time to lead on something like this, but I'd be glad to pitch in when I can. If somebody wants to lay out some concrete ideas, I would be more than willing to give feedback.|

I would like some idea's and some leaders to step up and help with this idea.
Shoot it down if you don't think it would work. Just voice your idea's would be great.

Tony is selling off his equipment if anybody local is interested. I just picked up a 120 and a 125 with filters for $1100. His e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org if anybody is interested.
I'm all for getting a group together to place orders. There's no where close to get good fish in my experience.

I was shocked when I went there a few days ago and found it closed. If there isn't a local shop in Lexington, then I guess were all going to have to use online vending. We here in Lexington should start a monthly team order. What do you all say?
