Fish stores near Hattiesburg?
I know the MS board is practically dead, but I thought I'd try anyway. Are there any good fish stores near Hattiesburg? I'll be traveling there soon and would love to check some out.

Also, if you know of any good reptile stores or plant nurseries near there, please let me know!

Pet Palace is the only one here besides Petsmart

I saw that but didn't stop in. It didn't look like much, but I might have to stop in sometime just to see.

Sometimes they have cool stuff. Just inspect closely for ich if buying fish.

Wish we could get a group going here but so far I haven't ran across anyone else.

A Petco has recently opened on Hardy Street. Most fish are well cared for from my initial venture, though the goldfish are in horrid condition.

Pet Palace stock is infested with parasites from my experience.

Hey. I just moved from Hattiesburg a few months ago. The petsmart has a great fish staff for the most part. I know a lot of them personally. If you are still in the area let me know and I'll tell you which ones to talk to. The fish at the PetCo that just opened are not in good health. Stay away from them unless you get them a few days after delivery. The staff there is NOT very knowledgeable and do not really care to care, lol. Reg. Pet Palace. Ken and his wife are fairly good about stocking things that petco/smart do not carry and are more than willing to order stuff for you. +1 to watch out for ich though. I got a healthy looking fish years ago that introduced ich to my big cichlid tank. Raised temp. and salt fixed it with minimal casualties. If you develop a good rapport with them they are very useful. I raised quality fish for them. If you bought SA/CA cichlids or, angels from them they were likely some of my stock. Some of the plants were mine too.
