I lived in Topeka for thirteen years. My grandmother lives in Anthony in Harper County to the south of Wichita. I passed through town a lot on my way to see her. I also used to pass through Wichita to go to Fort Sill Oklahoma. Wichita State University sent me to Puebla, Mexico in 1989 to study Spanish for six weeks. The professors had a comprehensive well established program down there.
I was putzing around with a 55 gallon tank at the time. It was a pathetic failure. I tried to diffuse CO2 with an inverted clear glass casserole dish weighted down with two bricks on top. There was no regulator or needle valve. When too much gas was injected underneath the casserole dish would flip over. I thought the giant reactor would work over the course of some hours but it didn't. It was like a little miniature Fukushima scenario.

Reviving this thread...
I am just South of Newton. Petworld is good, but the Petworld in ICT (same shopping center where Fins and Feathers was) is better. Tad took over that one and all of the planted tank knowledge is there with him. They occasionally get in some shrimp as well.
Newton is fine for picking up necessaries. I did get a clump of dwarf sag there and it is doing well.
Black Pearl is good, if you can be there when the store is open. I have been able to go inside once out of 3 tries, I have learned to call first before I go!

Pet World of Newton is where I work and we carry 50-60 different types of plants. If you want to do a planted tank we are the place to go hands down as we don't keep fish with our plants. The tanks are specifically for plants.
316-283-8400 is the shop number. We are also thinking about putting in a co2 refill station

Dodge City here...technically not Wichita. That said...everyone besides KC has got to stick together when it comes to Kansas, lol.
Speaking of...I'd kill for a Knollas Pizza right now.
