Just wanted to drop by and say that the butterfly conservatory was excellent! The reptile/beetle room was an unexpected and awesome touch, and I loved that the sanctuary wasn't just butterflies, but frogs, birds, a pond, and quails just running around as well. It was a really neat place.
Aqua View was also very nice, but small. They had some beautiful fish, and plants I considered purchasing. Only reason I didn't is that the tank I'd be buying them for doesn't have any algae yet, and in some of their tanks they did had some.
If they could get a bigger store to have a good selection to go along with obviously great quality, they'd be awesome. Time to move East to the Boston market!

|CrypticLifeStyle||Drove through last weekend, and i'd say if your a scenic drive type route 22 north through upstate NY to route 2 east to north adams, then south on the 91 to north hampton. I went the opposite way but it was nice :-)|

|Qwe||No problem! And if you're heading there first, you can avoid paying the tolls on 90 and use route 2.|

|Rush3737||Right on the way and the gf would love it, that might be perfect, thanks!|

I'd say that's enough time to check out Magic Wings: http://www.magicwings.com/
Pretty cool place, imo. About 14 miles north, 20 minute drive from Aqua View.

|Rush3737||Hey guys, I'm from Allentown, PA but will be in Boston next Tuesday. On Wednesday I'll be coming home and was looking for possible stopping points along the way and this place came up as perhaps the best aquatic stop. Problem is they don't open till 1pm. If I arrive in Northampton area around 11am is there anything you guys could recommend in the area to do until they open?|

|stanjam||I also like Aqua View. Aubie and I love going to all sorts of aquarium stores. Aqua View is one of our favorites. That is if they are still speaking to me after my female apisto killed their male after a failed breeding attempt!|

I love your store!

One way to get started on the plant swap idea is to either create a new thread or have everyone interested here list what they have to offer?

|AquaStudent||Can Albany, NY be associated with y'all? Everything in the NY threads are claimed by NYC :P|

I'd agree with Entomodonata on Fish Frenzy, their tanks and specimens looked very healthy, but man what a mess! Personally, I can't deal with it, lol.
I'd also agree with the idea of a plant swap... maybe we could all meet in or around Aqua View some time

Checking in from Northampton, MA. Quite a few of us here -- we should do a plant swap or something.
Aqua View is excellent for plants and fish. If you can deal with the lack of organization, Fish Frenzy in Ludlow, MA has very healthy fish. Some plants, but nothing exotic.
