Idrankwhat There's also Amazon Jungle in Ormond Beach on US1. Full line pet store, birds, reptiles and fish. Freshwater only, no marine. Old store, maybe one of the oldest in town.

mattycakesclark Updated a bit more, took my personal reviews off, since I can not visit all of them often enough, and it really is fair I think.

Fish Store
Nova Rd, Daytona, plaza in North West corner of Nova and Mason, same as Harbor Freight
Freshwater, Saltwater, FW Fauna, FW Flora, Corals, SW Fauna, SW Flora, Equipment and supplies.
I was referee to her by Amazing Aquarium on the issue of repairing a broken tank. The shop is quite compact, with some trade in goodies as other hardware. They have a.pretty standard collection of FW Fauna, including WCM. Saltwater is standard too, but they seemed light on the corals. Good stop if you are hitting up Harbor Freight.

mattycakesclark I was back in Mr. Petman the other day. They seem to be puttingl a bit more into their SW setups, but the main tank still has traces of red bubble algae and others.

DBridges Very sad about Mr. Petman. I grew up in South Daytona, not far from where Mr. Petman is. They used to be in a different location in the same mall complex (used to be called the Outlet Mall back then). Growing up they had a very good selection of fish and plants. Even after they moved to their current location, things were still good for many years.

Unfortunately, over the past 8 or 10 years, every time I come back home for a visit the store is worse and worse. The store didn't used to have that awful smell that it does now. Very much a shame what's happened to Mr. Petman - used to be a fantastic store.

Palm Coast has a good African Cich. store off of 100 (east of Belle Terre Parkway, south side; hard to find --in a business park).

RAZmonkey St Augustine
Pet Supermarket
Pet World

Those are the three I know about. But I haven't found the employees to be very helpful and most of the tanks have several dead fish in them. But I might've been on off days.

demonr6 I only know of the Pet Supermarket in St. Augustine. They take good care of their tanks and the stock is healthy. Not a huge selection but what they have is certainly not as bad as some of the other box stores and even the smaller specialty stores. Plant selection is not notable but what they have is in really good condition. We are up there every other month and I always stop by and see if there is anything new and interesting. As a whole that store is really good and the employees are more attentive and seem like they actually do not hate their work.

I think there is an awesome SW scene, but planted tanks seem to much bigger out West, some might say because of Asain influences but it is a big deal in Europe is seems too. There are some aquatic nurseries here, and commercial breeders, and I think that Florida will be a great hub in the future. We have good vendors like GLA, and some very active and proactive Floridians on this board.

I might venture up into Flagler some point, but it would be hard to justify to the lady a car trip just for my "dork" hobby. Mind you she has so much yarn for knitting and such.
I can tell you of a good LFS in Marteniez Ga lol.

On a side note, Florida is a great place for inspiration. You can go to almost any body of water and find plants and scape ideas.
