billfromreading I did stop by on Saturday. Nice place, good selection of both plants and fish. Got a pair of Ottos and Tiger Lilly bulb. Also picked up some Seachem additives, ThatFishPlace looks to be dropping the Seachem line, the last time I was there there were almost no Seachem products in stock.

midlife_hobbyist Sorry, didnt stop in this week. sunday 3/17 they're having 20% off sale on fish and plants

billfromreading Thinking of visiting Capt Nemo's (Natural Pet) on Saturday. Anyone know what the plant selection looks there, or have a better option in the Philly area?

I'm American, far too lazy for those 5 extra letters!

And if you have any extra unusual Barbs let me know, I could very well be interested in buying some off of you. If you check out the journal I have going in my sig within the last 10 posts is a potential fish list in that as well, will be looking to start adding somewhere between 1-3 weeks from now when the cycle is finished.

Fishies_in_Philly Sounds good. I may be visiting my uncle soon. He lives in center valley. I'm not a real big sports fan. I prefer watching games from home where the food is cheaper and i can pause for bathroom

Rush3737 That would be a fine plan, except I despise baseball!

But if you ever come up for a game let me know and we can certainly have a fish chat over some grub before the game!

Fishies_in_Philly the decision would be easy for me. i would sell the flyers tickets, buy some iron pigs tickets and buy fish/plants with the surplus cash.....LOL

Rush3737 Okay, I've been able to visit Captain Nemo's twice now and Levittown is way out of my way, so maybe I'll just plan on something else to do while in the city, or perhaps I'll make the extra trek, have the week to decide!

Fishies_in_Philly Depends. If you are looking for fish or plants and you are near 476 the old capt. Nemo's is the place. Jt's now called nature's pet, i believe. If you need equipment and are near 95 north, hidden reef in levittown is the place. Excellent prices on equipment. Good selection of fish. Not a great selection. But their hard goods prices are tough to beat
02-17-2013 01:00 AM
Rush3737 Oh. :lol

In that case, if you had to pick one place in the city or a short hop off of 76, 476, or 95 to hit what would you recommend? Really I'll just be looking to browse fish/plants, so selection is the most important thing.

Edit: Dear lord... how do you people live here without a :lol icon!

Fishies_in_Philly Hahahaha......tony meant my house. It's more like a petshop more than most

Rush3737 Bill, where exactly is your store located?

I'll be down for the Flyers game Saturday and might try and drop by before/after the game.
