wbwks 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!

I'll be making my way up there,..once the freezing rain thaws.

slimbolen99 From Emporia; spent a lot of time in Wichita many years back; and currently live in a suburb of KC...the drive between Wichita and Emporia was too boring!

Daximus 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.

I know this is an old thread. I'm from Plains. I've been in Fish World. Jim has a nice shop. There is a new store on 2nd and Kansas now too. Fins, Feathers and Furs. It's also a nice store.

larrylee Hi Im from hutchinson kans, go to wichita and hit all the petstores that carry good variety of fish and plants. Sea Dreams is good, fins and feathers has large selection of plants and fish, I keep Amazon river aquarium (45 gal bowfront) most all plants and all my fish are variations of native fish.

The Mark im talking about never worked at Rainbow that i know of.

Also the old Fins and Feathers seems to have the best plant selection of recently then Sea Dreams or any other LFS. Fins is now called Petland but still in the same location out in West Wichita. They really seem to be trying to make a push for plants. Not many rares but still they are at least trying.

None of these places carry planted tank equipment yet...so gotta love the sponsors here.

efi64comet Hey Scott I have been hearing your name a lot from Mark. Guess we are both getting some nice clippings from him. Tried going by Rainbow a couple weeks ago on Sat and they were closed at 3pm. Did you ever order up some other shrimp?
