Not entirely sure of the limits/legalities involved here, but it seems as if it could be lucrative for someone who already has the equipment necessary for it.


Any new info on LFS's in the area? any new, closed down, under renovation?

OP should do a list stickied to the first page of this.

I have a list of the LFS to the first page of this. I might be missing some I planned on making the list better but I haven't had that much time I barely get to get on here in between work and my classes.

What would you think of hosting a poll, to see what places are favored over others?

Just using what information you already have collected, and having others collate for you.

Odd.... V.I.Pet's website isn't working. Looks like maybe they forgot to renew their domain name. But there are multiple locations:

4191 Plainfield Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49525

in Cutlerville: 6701 Division Ave S, Grand Rapids, MI

in Jenison: 7640 Riverview Dr Jenison, MI 49428

Thanks I added in the website in as well.

When I first thought of this I figured it would finally be able to be good enough to be a sticky.

I went to a couple LFSs yesterday. Mostly the bigger name stores. I also went to Stingray Bay which I everytime I go in there I want to take home one of there stingrays. Anyways I forgot about how much dry goods they have. Seen they had some shrimp (orange, red cherry, and sakura). Also had some Bumblebee gobies and striped kuhli loaches that I almost took home.
