Moving to Iowa City in Jan/Feb
Hi there! I just wanted to stop by here and say hi to (soon to be) local-ish people! Any fish suggestions/info around those parts? General tap water params, stores, etc would be very helpful!

Hey! I live in Iowa City.

There is a store in Coralville, which is right next to Iowa City, called "Coralville Bay" that has nice freshwater fish. Their plants are not usually very happy though. We also have a PetCo which is decent for a big box store.

I live in Coralville and I do most of my business with Coralville bay. I get my ro water there because I don't have the best luck with Coralville's water and plants. We also have a petland and there are a few stores in cedar rapids which is not too far away.
Hope you have fun in the area.

Hi guys! Nice to meet you both! Thanks for the suggestions. What's the water quality like up there?

I am on a well and it is hard as a rock. I think most of the city water here is supposed to be pretty hard.
