Vesh Had to drive to Roseville this Saturday. Visited Aquarium Depot in Roseville and Jojo in Sacto. Jojo is a great store! Aquarium Depot is not so. It's 'just OK'.

kcheung Ive been to Aqua Workz huge store with lots of products! Exotic is also a great store.

Hoppy We in Sacramento are extremely lucky to have the selection of LFS that we have. I keep pinching myself to see if it is just a dream! JoJo's is my favorite, but Exotic isn't far behind.

boon I just got back from Sacramento after doing a little bit of shopping, Man Jojo expansion is sweet. They added a bunch of ADA stuff since I was last there. They had a 60P and a Mini M i think. They also carry ADA AS, Power Sand, etc. They also have a crap load of Do Aqua! stuff/tank. They're getting better at their freshwater selection too. Some of the fish IMO is kinda overpriced. Their Dario Dario were going for 8.99 a pop while Exotic has there for 2.99 a pop. Just a heads up for some local folks.

Aubzilla I stopped in on a few of the Sac stores on MLK day(husband was at the go-kart track lol). I will definitely be spending money at Jojo's! They had a series/brand of desktop tanks that all look really great and priced awesome, I wish I could have remembered the company name. They went from maybe a gallon up to around 12 or so. I'll probably be stopping back to pick one up in a few weeks.

Jaggedfury O St Aquarium in Downtown Sac have Crystal Red/Crystal Black shrimp for 5.99! They look like S grade to me. Only a few left, I only looked did not purchase. They also have Orange shrimps!

They also have two Seahorse that looks pretty amazing! It's Black in color and is about 2.5 inches long. It's on the front counter. I thought that was pretty cool to see. Haven't seen a Seahorse in person before.

I went to JoJo last week and had them pre-order me some ADA Iron Bottom. This stuff rocks! I noticed alot more greener plants due to using the ADA Iron sticks! Took advantage of their ADA vendor products without having to pay for the high shipping rates!

If you need anything from ADA, they can get it for you without the cost of the shipping!

boon Thats good to know. I usually stop by there every time I go to Exotics. Last time I was there I finally saw a Zebro Pleco. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL! but $399.99 USD.

Jojo's expansion is open in Sacramento!

Jojo's expansion is now OPEN!!! We went there yesterday and I came home with 3 new Discus! The entire addition is open now, but not quite fully populated with fish. Their new plant area is still a work in progress, but is coming along nicely! My wife and I each bought some Amazon sword's. They have plans for tank(s) with CO2 and displaying/selling plants for low, medium and high light tanks. They just received a new shipment of Discus and they run the entire upper level of one side! They are getting more supplies soon along with a display for a bunch of ADA stuff too. Stop by when you get a chance!

efface went to jojo this past weekend and they were pretty helpful. only thing I didn't like was that each person there seemed to have a speciality so I had to talk to 3 different people to get all the info I needed. other than that I ended up spending 230 there and i plan on spending another 180 this weekend. so they must be doing something right :P

Herbicidal I hit those same three this past weekend too! We're on a first name basis with Andy and Mike at Jojo's. Andy was explaining to us about how they are going to move the row of tanks that currently house Discus, to the new room and that the entire bottom row of tanks will be for plants!

They are all very nice people and I am happy to see an expansion of their store. I truly hope it pays off for them.

ramsx22 this past weekend i visited exotic, aquaworkz and jojos. wasnt really impressed with exotic and aquaworkz but at jojos i found a lot more plant stuff there compared to the other stores. they actually carry ADA products which was shocking because no stores in sacramento carry it. i was looking for cardinal tetras but they didnt have them. one of the workers told me too check back in later on this week because they get weekly shipments. definitely jojos is going to be one of my usual stops from now on.

Joe.1 Every time I go to JoJo's, I always find something to buy. Can't wait to see their new expansion.
