Fishyfanatic Checkout William Tricker Inc. they've been around since 1892. Last I was there they had lots of plants and cherries for 2.99 each! Here's there FB page https://m.facebook.com/pages/William...764778550&_rdr

driftingchick101 I realize this is an old thread but in case anyone is still keeping tabs on it, a great aquatic store in NE Ohio is Aquatica in Valley City/Strongsville area. They have tons and tons of tanks. Salt and freshwater. Not tons of plants or shrimp but they've got fish out the wazoo. Even some frogs and salamanders. Check em out.

They have the best livestock I have ever seen. The fish and plants are healthier here than at the Pittsburgh Zoo.
Agreed, I'm 1.5hrs away and I was there last weekend. They had a 50% off sale and I got some good plants for cheap. Great selection and tanks are clean.


I like RMS also, AA still wins hands down!

Too me it seems almost unethical or irresponsible. Knowing how large something like that is going to get and that people commonly just turn them loose at a certain point. I think that probably very few people really keep any sort of "zoo" like conditions with a large enough habitat or inclosure.

Sorry to be a troll on this thread - I just think this is an interesting concept...

I completely agree....The local store here in Dayton (Gerbers) has a lot of large fish together in too small of a tank(s). I think a lot of times they take in pets from people trying to do good but then they just sit there when people don't buy them.

UDGags hahaha, have you ever been to MFK?

I guess the other alternative is to eat them but that could be weird if it's a pet at that point.
