Default Best LFS in Cbus

Being a reef keeper I really only go to Phishy Business and order stuff online.

Where do people shop for freshwater fish and plants in Cbus?

Was thinking Aquarium Adventure, but have heard some bad things about their practices. I want to stay away from Jacks and Petland

Thanks!

I know it is not in Culumbus, but these are about a half hour away. I have been to the ones in Columbus, but these are still by far, my favorite.

Seatide Aquarium and Pets-Sell a TON of fish, helpful people, sells plants-Lancaster,OH

R.J.s Aquarium-Lots of fish, and supplies, no plants, helpful and knowledgable people,-Heath/Hebron Ohio.

J.P. Success- Not a whole lot of fish, some supplies/aquariums, not many plants but when they have plants it is a SUPER deal. It is on the same road as Seatide Aquarium and Pets, so might as well check it out.-Lancaster, OH

All stores are Mom and Pop places, and very nice. Hope it helps,
Rick

Ferretown, thanks for the list. I might hit those stores up next week just to check them out.

I was disappointed in AA again last week.

Yes thank you for the info.

I bought some common plants at AA- but don't want to buy any of their fish/shrimp/snails due to their practices.

Also, their supplements are crazy expensive...
