Could you post your findings? I'm soon to be in the market myself.

I prefer adana-usa just because they are in cali (closest to us vegan's) but I don't think I've ever seen like blue reef selling ADA items (even though i was too distracted by all the beautiful saltwater *drools*) I guess you can get anything ordered from a store because ADA accepts any wholesalers that would like to purchase.

If Trop has plants (like baby tears or DHG) or red crystal shrimp - let me know, I'm about ready to stock my Fluval Edge and kind-of don't want to do the shipping method just because i hear about "dead counts"

i just went to atlantis with my cousin. and wow.

i did not like it one bit. the tanks looked dirty, barely any plant selection. not a whole lot of equipment or other merchandise that was on the shelves. either they are moving or this place just....iono.

Just went to Trop yesterday and no DHG or Baby Tears (i'm also in the market for these). They did have some java ferns, mini swords, swords, wisteria, and java moss ($7). And for shrimp, they had plenty of "Algea Eating Shrimp" ($2.98) and they did have a tank for red crystal shrimp but it was empty.

It was my first trip to Trop, not really too impressed, prices were pretty high imo. They did have some very nice tanks though for a decent price.


EDIT-UPDATE

Went to the PETCO on N Rainbow today and found some DHG. They actually had a decent selection of plants.

yeah i might need to check out the other PETCO's. I usually don't trust big chain stores because they dont know jack-squat and usually have low quality. Wish the weather would cool it so we can order online

If any of you guys in vegas want some free plants i usually have a good amount from my 2 small tanks. I just give it to trop aquarium so if you guys want some just hit me up. I usually have a good amount of pennywort, dwarf sag, dwarf water lettuce, subwassertang, christmas tree moss.

im working on HC and repens 49 so ill have clippings from them in a bit. Shoot me a pm if you want some. I do have some snails just fyi on my plants. Got them from some guppy grass i got from someone.

But regardless if you want to meet up ill give you some as i just chuck out a lot of it about every 2 weeks.

yeah i just bought from AZgardens (about a week ago) so i'm set.. actually they were supposed to ship dwarf sag but seems like i got a different ID of plant. I have some DHG and flame moss left if you like. If I get my 12gal rimless long I would love to have dwarf water lettuce (love that floater)

Assume F.I.S.H. on Bruce went out of business? Went there Saturday 11-17 and it's now some type of Dollar store. Phone number listed is disconnected. Anything else new in Vegas?

Blue Reef Aquariums I think it's called in North Las Vegas just increased the size of their freshwater selection, and lowered some of their prices.

"Blue Reef Aquatics" I just recently re-discovered this place as it used to be saltwater only. I now go in about once a week since it is about a mile from my house and they have some nice fish including (currently) panda Cory's and galaxy danios. I bought out all their ember tetras and want more so hopefully they will get more soon!
