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!

Pet World of Newton is where I work and we carry 50-60 different types of plants. If you want to do a planted tank we are the place to go hands down as we don't keep fish with our plants. The tanks are specifically for plants.
316-283-8400 is the shop number. We are also thinking about putting in a co2 refill station

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.

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.
|03-14-2009 10:25 PM|
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.

I could be wrong but it appears that Rainbow Fish is going all Marine ... help help the dark side of the force has him ... also from what I can gather Mark does not work there any longer
Sea Dreams on East Harry seems to be "the" place for fish at the moment and they have recently started getting some really nice plants in stock. Nothing too rare or expensive but good stock and not too pricey, oh and that goes for their fish too!

|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?|

if you are ever back in this neck of the woods make a stop at rainbow fish store, I help out around there.
the ph controller was not hard at all, I had a saltwater buddie walk me through the calibration part and really was as easy as dipping the prob in 7.0 solution seting it, and the the same with 5.0 solution.
in all honesty you don't need the controller if you keep up on maintenance, i got it in the beginning because I thought it was cool just a solenoid and a timer is all you need. but "ph controller" does sound high teck and cool,lol
