Coming to Rt4??!!??!!

F22 - I was in your store on Saturday. I love the selection you have, and the setup. You definitely had much more than I anticipated. I was told you will have assassin snails later this week? I already picked up a few, but I may be in the market for more. Also, I didn't notice a live plant section (the wife was hanging on my leg like a nagging child though, so I may have missed it). Do you guys have one?

Guys.....definitely worth checking this store out!!

shloken38 11-12-2012 07:34 PM

Forgot to ask.....what day are you looking at?

ecotanker 11-12-2012 07:42 PM

must be an obsession! :icon_eek: I heard to clear this conditions you must keeping on doing it until you had enough.

VivaDaWolf 11-12-2012 08:51 PM

XD oh boy.
I only am off wed unfortunately. What are you looking to get?

And ALBERT! ED. You guys mentioned the neon blues in pacific..oh man..I was like, whatever- they arent THAT cool (from what Ive seen on internet photos) and...I totally dont need them... but then I actually went in and looked at them and DROOOOOL! Can't afford a school of $7 fish

acitydweller 11-12-2012 08:55 PM

im actually taking denis :)

I could have sworn the blue neon rasboras were like $3 ea which was why i was considering them myself. There were lyretails that were like $7 in the same tank... pretty but not something i would get personally. also i think these guys are mislabeled as they have a blue streak that runs from midbody down to the lower part of their tail fin which is not what a blue neon would look like... hmmm LFS are not reliable with common names....

would love to swing by Rt4 and several other shops in the area.

VivaDaWolf 11-12-2012 08:58 PM this is a sexiest page of fish right here...

when ya going?

acitydweller 11-12-2012 09:00 PM

hoping for Wed or maybe thurs

woah.... nice fish site. very nice

Congee 11-12-2012 09:08 PM

Ahhh the assassin snails! I'm still lookin for them lol.

cprash 11-12-2012 09:29 PM

I actually got 10 blue neon rasboras from them for $40 about a month ago. If you buy a school you can usually get a discount.

Do you guys have any space for the trip? :D

acitydweller 11-12-2012 09:32 PM

i only have a two seater but we're asking people if they can drive so more people can go. The last time we went as a party of 8, the shop owners were able to offer discounts since we were buying out entire tanks that were in stock LOL

Is anyone interested in heading out there? Im after one fish, which is the pitbull/bulldog pleco for $6. He's all nose and little body. haha.

VivaDaWolf 11-12-2012 10:05 PM

Maybe, if its a wed. ...maybe. Not sure if the boyfriend will object. >.>
