I like Greenwich Aquaria - nice selection of plants and hard-to-find tropicals, shrimp, and other planted tank stuffs. Every Sunday they have a 15% off livestock sale. Pretty cool. I swear they should charge admission just to look at some of their tanks, lol.

Purrfect Pets in Milford is also very nice, they have fair prices for a locally-owned store, an interesting selection of fish at times, a friendly staff, and they carry Hans (Stendker) discus. I have to like a store that sells young discus, lol. They're also willing to order stuff on request if you really want something.

Mistakenly posted a link and when I hit preview, was informed that I could not post a link (new member), and my entire very lengthy post disappeared.

Okay, start again....

Waterbury Aquarium is one of my favorite lfs. The owner has been in the fish business a long time and has a wide assortment of fish, both tropical and salt. Small assortment of plants but they appear healthy.

PetsMart (Waterbury) has a good selection of fish and they are usually healthy. Staff not knowledgeable so do your research first. No aquatic plants although they label them as such.

PetCo (Waterbury) has horrible fish tanks, few species, and no plants. Always many dead fish. We will only purchase equipment here.

Choice Pet Supply (Bethel/Danbury) is another favorite for fish. Not a huge selection but the fish are very healthy and the staff is knowledgeable. Small plant selection. They can place any order you need. Shipments arrive on Tuesdays.

A month ago, I got my killifish and some plants at an auction in Cromwell, CT. The auction was sponsored by the Northeast Council of Aquarium Societies. From there, was invited to the breeder's home and he gave me more killies and more plants. Next auction is scheduled in March.
