My girlfriend and I went "Fish hopping" this weekend. We live in Philadelphia, but decided to venture to North Jeresey to see what was available.
What we found out:
Animals and Things: Great store for odd ball plecos, great selection of tropical fish. Not so good for plants.
The Pet Shanty: Excellent selection of plants and fish and yes they know what they are talking about.
Hanover Pets: Not worth the trip. (Called some thing else but forgot the name, begins with an "A". It is in the Home Depot Shopping Center in Hanover, NJ.
Absolutely Fish: Too expensive! For everything!
Next weekend we are going to check out Pet, Pets, Pets.
