Local CO2 tank
 
Hey,

Anyone know where I can get a decently priced CO2 tank locally? I am in Chestnut Hill (Philadelphia) so I can go out in a few different directions to find a shop. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Scully's isn't bad at all. That's also where I get my tanks filled.

Thanks for the heads up. I called and I am waiting to hear back to see if they have any available. Fingers crossed.

Thanks again Clint. Picked my tank up yesterday and my new regulator came in today. Nice upgrade from that Paintball setup I was using. If you have a heads up on any spots that sell decent priced driftwood shoot them my way.

Hidden Reef got in some nice driftwood last weekend.
$3.99/pound I believe it was

But, even closer, just over the bridge, http://www.aquariumcenter.biz/

Call first but they have a good plant selection too. Not to mention their fish selection is second too none followed buy their great prices.

Thanks for the suggestions. I went by Hidden Reef this morning, my first time, and I was impressed. I'm gonna head over to Aquarium Center on Thursday to check it out. They had a nice little selection of driftwood at HR so it was a good trip.

Hiddenreef has a nice selection of dry goods with awesome price
but their freshwater selection is still kind of empty and disappointing
i went there two days ago and they just had big plant shipment i bought 4 kinds :D

i went to aquarium center today around 4:00pm
the fishroom is fully packed with lots of customers, im impressed because their fish stock is always full that brings lots of customer i guess
i bought 7 orange paso snails and 5 blue german rams :D

Nice! Yea I did notice the fish selection was a little light. I was really tempted to buy another tank after looking at a few of the ones they had but I was able to control myself for the time being.

Went by Aquarium Center this morning. Very nice place! Nice selection of fish and plants. Thanks for that suggestion. I didn't even think to look while I was there, but any suggestions for a good spot to pick up a decent stand for a 55?

Dempsey 04-07-2013 05:17 PM

I'm not sure about stands... Fish, plants and other supplies are priced great. Tanks and stands I thought were a little high, but I really don't know since haven't compaired prices on tanks and stands...

PhillyMurse 04-07-2013 11:49 PM

Yea the prices on plants were very palatable. I did glance at a few tanks and wasn't impressed with prices, nice selection though. I'd love to build one but finding the time to do it is tough. Craigslist also seems to be lacking in options lately. The search continues!
