Great start Eden, I was in the office all day and could not get this started, so here is my submission's, I will list what I saw the other day after visiting most of the north denver / boulder stores.

The one thing we should stress, this is NOT a review topic. As us Coloradans know
our LFS are very spread apart. This post is to help reduce wasted trips. I typically go to the boulder stores at least once per month, sometimes more lol.

Aquatic Residence

Axelrodi
Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish
Badis Badis
Paradox Stickleback
Discus
Threadfin Rainbows
They have several brackish tanks as well.
Special note: They can get just about anything you are looking for. Just ask if you do not see it in a tank.

Yes, so the whole point is every time you visit a store and see anything interesting you post here your discoveries and the thread will be updated. It will give us an idea of what store carries what. Then if you have a phone unlike me, you can call them about it before you head out.

True, but I don't want to spend 3 hours round trip and 1/3 tank of gas just to find out that they only have the regular stuff that I can go to the local Petsmart/Co/Walmart to see and only waste a few minutes and little bit of gas.

I would recommend that the OP (Eden) make a note that the stock lists are something that shows what the store has had in the past with any prices being an example but most likely subject to change. People should call before driving off to a distant store if they are looking for something in particular.

Special note: There is still such a thing as payphones and prepaid phone cards.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".

This is awesome! I plan on going by Exotic Aquatics and Aqua Imports after work, I'll let you know what they have. I'm guessing we want to list only the more exotic species?

Yea, we want to get a list of the less common species that they may have in stock whenever someone drops in for a look.

I am specifically looking for threadfins. I lost a couple over the past few months and need to get their numbers up.

Yep! Basically, anything you typically won't see at a Petsmart/Co/Walmart! Anything that catches your eye because you thought it was darn awesome, beautiful, want to let the whole world know!
