F22 - I was in your store on Saturday. I love the selection you have, and the setup. You definitely had much more than I anticipated. I was told you will have assassin snails later this week? I already picked up a few, but I may be in the market for more. Also, I didn't notice a live plant section (the wife was hanging on my leg like a nagging child though, so I may have missed it). Do you guys have one?

Guys.....definitely worth checking this store out!!

im actually taking denis

I could have sworn the blue neon rasboras were like $3 ea which was why i was considering them myself. There were lyretails that were like $7 in the same tank... pretty but not something i would get personally. also i think these guys are mislabeled as they have a blue streak that runs from midbody down to the lower part of their tail fin which is not what a blue neon would look like... hmmm LFS are not reliable with common names....

would love to swing by Rt4 and several other shops in the area.
