treetom The one across from LCCC I thought was kind of skanky in its final years. It was a nice shop when I was much younger. Malawi is a great place, especially if you are into Chiclids.

Tropical World Pets is ok, not worth the drive from Jerseyville unless you are looking for something specific and call ahead to see if they have it.

Never been to anything else on the list. There used to be a really cool place across from LCCC, but it shut down years ago and turned into a Curves.

Tmobo There used to be an lfs called Guppies Galore that was on north lindbergh. I used to go in there all the time as a kid. That place had hundreds of tanks and fish. I always remember the red belly piranhas they had. That place pretty much got me loving fish at a young age.

gregpxc Agreed, MASI and their forums are great. I stopped going to meetings for personal reasons but I still try to attend auctions and things that they put on frequently. they are an excellent group of people.

We our a great group of people! We have a lot of new people and old people who have been around. On the Masi forum we wanted to know who you are by real name. It's just easy to find someone by there real name rather than someone call the dragonkeeper and so on.
Just so you all know bunny left the forum by her own. Masi did not push her out by no means. All Masi rule was that just want a real name. I think your email address came up with a different name when you sent a email to the web person. We have a good group of web people who kept tabs on spam and heckers and so on. It's something you need to keep all the stuff from going to mass email group.

treetom How about on the Illinois side?
04-02-2011 02:42 AM
treetom I'm from the Illinois side and only a few minutes from MO and unfortunately almost all of the stores listed are over an hour away with the exception of Malawi Aquatics. Anyone have any experience with the stores listed above. Malawi can give you a bit of a shock when you walk in. It's dark and hot and humid as all get out, the tanks are bare with the exception of rocks for the fish that hide like chiclids and plecos and such. However after being in the store for a while I noticed that all the fish were healthy and vigorously swimming about. I only saw one dead fish and no sick fish the two times I was there. The prices are good on there fish and as the name implies, they catter to the chiclid lover.

Tropical World Pets is clean and well stocked with healthy looking fish and they carry some reptiles and marine fish as well. They do have a nice selection of not so common to the big box stores of drift wood, filtration, parts, and such. Very good place to go if looking for more than just fish.

adamprice271 Don't work there, don't know. Call them.

treetom Thanks for the info. Looking for some Nerites, does the store in Wentzville have any of those?
03-31-2011 08:46 PM
adamprice271 Yeah, we're almost done cleaning out Pet Market Place, just some shelving units still to go. We were pretty much the largest place with the most fish, and man were we cheap.

What's left....

Tropical World Pets on watson

Aquaworld One down gravois past the bevo mill, one on Manchester near 109 in ellisville (past allllll the car dealers)

malawi aquatics somewhere close to where beldts was (can't remember)

saltwater stuff

marine solutions near 94 and 70

gateway aquatics off of telegraph

Seascape studio off of South Lindbergh near watson rd

That's all that I can come up with off the top of my head.

stores that are closed now...

guilded guppy
pet treasures
clayton pet emporium
pet market place
Beldts

Adam

Oh and anyone who hasn't been to aquaworld..they are expensive but usually have some awesome stuff. If you buy 6 of any one type, you get 20% off, and, if you "like" them on facebook you get an instant 10ish% off...they have a cpu there, and will look you up to see.

And for the local club, check out the website... just google missouri aquarium society. The site will come up. HUGE auction coming up in May 1st
