In fact I would bet money that is is in fact SPAM.

I like the lazy creek stores in Lexington and Leesville. My wife and I know most of the employees personally and they are all very honest about their stock. That, to me, is more important than having a big selection or a lot of stock. Plus, they are willing to price match and special order if they can.

I would second that. I almost forgot about Lazy Creek. We moved to Columbia a few years ago but used to buy food for our American Bulldog and occasionally a few fish here and there.

Seems like there's unmet demand in Myrtle beach. I'm looking to start breeding, selling, and growing plants. What's the demand like in the area?

Update on Fishy Business. I move and haven't been into the hobby for a couple years. I setup a 75 gallon for African Cichlids and stopped by there hoping to stock up. It looks like the same place but they must have a new owner. I bought two small catfish. Nothing else was of quality. Tanks are in sad shape. Not like it use to be. I ended up ordering my fish and supplies online.

I agree with the comments on Fishy Business. The stock is always minimal with mostly just common fish. Tanks are old and there are never enough employees to help you if you ever do want to buy something.

I do like the Lazy Creek Lexington store. Employees are very helpful and nice and take interest in you. I am setting up a 90 gallon low tech planted tank in the next couple months and they have been very helpful and interested in my plans and wanted to help in any way possible. Offering to order whatever fish I want. I have been looking for spider wood and they are the only place I can find it.

I was in Charleston SC this weekend and went to Age of Aquariums and Tideline Aquatics and neither carried spider wood.
Tideline does have a good stock of fish and were very friendly but only sell driftwood out of their tanks and they say it is mainly wood found in the area.
Age of Aquariums did have some driftwood but not a big supply and no spider wood. Their fish supply was limited also.
