I am starting a new tank and have some dwarf hair grass that will end up in the trash. It's quite a bit, and I'm in Blackfoot but go to Pocatello all the time. Let me know if you want some!

Twin Falls Idaho Planted Tank Fanatic

Hi, I am seeing that this is an old post, but I am replying anyhow. 5 fully planted tanks. Largest is a 46 gallon acrylic bowfront. Photo of one of two Fluval Edge tanks with my male butterfly betta checking me out.

ravenmyth I think Fish Aquariums and Stuff on Fairview Ave in Boise is very good. I have had very good success with their fish even though I live 100+ miles from there. They do have a limited plant selection but everything I purchased from them has thrived with one exception where I chose a plant requiring more light than my low tech aquarium provides..

Boise Freshwater Aquarium on Overland has a broader selection of particularly cichlids and is visually more impressive with some of their huge tanks. Their plant selection is also fairly limited and I have not purchased plants from them.

cojo0667 Yeah, I agree, Idaho's selection is aweful! I live in Caldwell Idaho and when i go to get fish i always go into boise to Boise Freshwater Aquarium off of Overland. 99% of my plants I have ordered online. All in all Idaho has a very poor selection. I am in North Idaho right now and might stop in somewhere tomorrow in Spokane. Will be in Portland around August 10th and will be stopping by a few different stores to see what kind of selection is in Portland. I have heard there are a few really good stores over there.

Aennedry Hi everyone. I live in Idaho Falls. I have been ordering plants from on-line stores, the selection here is pathetic. A few swords, and bog plants and that is it most of the time.
I am running a low-tech tank, 29gal with 1.7wpg. Going to be upgrading the lights a bit, but no too much.
Glad to meet everyone.

Not really any plant stores. I found that PETSMART has the best "limited" selection. Sometimes Petco has some if it isnt dying. My favorite place out here is Boise Freshwater Aquarium but he doesnt have much as far as plants are concerned. I wonderful fish selection though!
