Default Silver Spring Area

Hi guys, new here to the forum. I'm actually from Barbados but i travel to Silver Spring every year to visit family.

I was wondering if you could recommend any good pet shops close to the DC Metro route.

I've been to the Petco in Rockville and I just recently discovered the Petco right in front of the Cleveland Park station. Additionally I've visited Tropical Lagoon on Georgia Avenue. It's small but the service was excellent in terms of the guy there giving advice and suggestions even if the product could not be obtained from their store.

Also I think i should note that I don't usually have access to a vehicle, so i use the bus and metro mainly.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

If you have been in the petco at the Rockville area, there is another local aquarium shop called "Congressional Aquarum" across the petco. Give it a try over there, not a bad idea to visit.
Here is the link http://www.congressionalaquarium.com/
BTW, you can take off from the Twinbrook metro station on Red line.

Showcase in Wheaton is a nice store, close to the Wheaton metro stop, which is just two or three stops from the Silver Spring metro stop.
