You guys who say you live up the road from Adams, what town are you in? I'm in Long Valley, on the border of Chester.

I work in Bedminster, on 206. I live near the Lincoln Tunnel. Now I definitely want to hit up Adam's. how much were the crypts? Were they part of that 3 for 12 bucks?

My relative is in Bedminster, took us about 20 mins drive to the shop. The crypts i got were $5.99 each, they didn't mention anything about 3 for 12 to me. Dunno if they just don't have it active or the guy didn't know about it, or something else.

Where I work, the drive is 10 minutes. I saw on the website 3 for 12 for potted plants. Just hoping they are plants I can use.

THEY NEVER mention anything about discounts!


Untitled by laq997, on Flickr

those are the crypts i got from them.. now they all melted and re-grew so that is 100% new growth.. they have multiplied.

i will say their plants do live a long time but THEY HAVE TONS OF SNAILS... their betta have seen better days...

watch the price on supplies (ferts, filter stuff etc) and DATES.. it sits. they have a HUGE turn over of crickets and stuff and creepy crawly stuff in the back (i don't go back there) .. they do have a cute ferret (not that i've touched it, buy my daughter said it was soft) ICK

the morning guy (youngish) is very nice, and knows a TON about fish.

So how is the selection in Pet Shanty? Do they have plants? I don't think this place is too far from my job either.

If you live near Lincoln, I would htink the Ridgewood store would have more plants than most of these stores combined.

The store is 7 miles from my work in Union and I don't really go down there. Their prices are what i expect for a LFS. I haven't been there since summer but I don't recall much plants. I bought 3 emperor tetras for $5 a piece. One died and became shrimp food and now that I think about it, they've all perished since then.

On your way there, there's Ocean Gallery 2, which was only s/w but during the summer they were expanding and adding a freshwater selection. Not sure if it's anything like their s/w set up since I haven't been back there in a while.

Thanks for the info. I've been to the ADA store before, and every other store in that area. I was just curious about Pet Shanty because some have said good things and it's not far from the job. I ask about plants because when I go to a store, I like it to have both livestock and plants. Gives me a reason to hang out in there longer!

The Ridgewood store is up Rt. 17, about 10 minutes North of Garden State Plaza. I was in there today. I bought some Crypt Parva, corkscrew vals, hygro augustifolia and some microsorium-something (forgot which one). Oh, also picked up 2 NICE looking guppies (wifey saw them in the show tank and fell in love!).

The store is definitely worth the trip. They have some really nice tanks set up and a great selection of plants.

You're on Schooley's Mtn? I never thought there would be so many locals here! I'm in the Valley by Hacklebarney Park. What shops do you usually go to? I like Adams, simply for its convenience and location.
