Best Philly/PA LFS For Plants
 
I'll be crossing into PA towards Centre County, and would like some opinions on what the best LFS is with the widest display selection of plants. I've place That Pet Store on the list, but would GREATLY appreciate your opinions on other options

Thanks

Plants are hit or miss. Captain Nemo's has a decent selection and every now and then will have some hard to find plants.

Believe it or not, Petco's have some good crypts and anubias at good prices in stock. Upper Darby, Ardmore, and KOP suprised me. Nothing fancy...nothing rare...but for crypts and anubias...not bad.

Premium Aquatics in Newark DE will also have some plants...hit or miss...but the people are friendly and can order most stuff for you.

Lastly, Aquarium Center in Jersey is worth a shot. Not too far out of philly across the bridge. I reallly like this store.

none of the local lfs really have much stuff in the way of plants. just the common stuff. that pet place has a great selection of fish, as does the hidden reef, but if you're looking for plants, there's not much around. you can get better stuff from members on here.

Yea just hit up the swap and shop section on here. I just bought 15 blyxa for $15 shipped. (I know you were giving them away Bill, but I think I read somewhere you were waiting until they grew out again?) So I just picked some up anyway. Gonna stick them in the 30 gallon tank in my room since the only thing I have in there right now is dirty gravel, half dead chain sword and a ton of duckweed. Not to mention the new betta I got that's running the whole tank haha

I'm gonna want some of that moss stuff you got growing over everything though. I got a couple pieces of driftwood that would look cool with the stuff growing on it. Won't be for a couple weeks though.

i call dibs on bills blyxa :D

I'm sure that picture doesn't do the tank justice at all. I know when I saw it in person it looked so much better.

Fishies_in_Philly 12-19-2012 10:16 PM
