Im live in va beach. Fish safari is owned by a marine biologist, hence its mostly salt water stuff how ever in the past they have ordered anything I wanted at pretty competative prices. I just bounce between Jungle and Safari....and Homedepot.

I just moved from San Diego to Norfolk. We need to get a club together with some meetings even if it's just to hang out and look at each other’s stuff. I'm buying a house soon and I have three tanks to set up (a 10, 40b, and a 50) so I need inspiration and competition. Does anyone want to help me out with this?

I'm new to the planted tank world and am working on getting mine to grow in. I purchased all my plants and substrate online, but all my stocking has been local. I live in Suffolk, and most of the fish have come from Animal Jungle. I bought my tank from Fish Safari, and last week I bought a SAE and 3 rummy nose from Fish Safari. The prices were a little higher at Fish Safari but the fish were healthy and no wait on getting service.

Thanks for the offer. I really need to get some good pictures of my tank, but as of right now all of my plants are doing great and had to trim last weekend because it was getting overgrown. My grass isn't spreading much, but other than that my tank is pretty much full. I bought a complete plant package from freshwateraquariumplants.com since I didn't have a clue on how they'd all look and grow in together looking at them at a LFS. I'd highly recommend them if you need anything. I have a couple types of algae, but nothing too serious at this point. I have 3 otos, a SAE, and some random snails working on the cleanup, but it looks like I need to scrub the glass again.

Hoping to keep this thread going. We live in Poquoson, and are really looking for some good groups to join. Been in the hobby for a long time, into planted freshwater tanks for maybe a little over a year now. Really looking to trade some plants that I don't have with others and vice versa.

On a side note, anyone know what has happened to animal jungle? Went two weeks ago seemed to me place has gone downhill, alson noticed the help wanted sign for the fish dept. It was my goto place, nice and clean. They had the best setup! All tanks were on there seperate filter boxes, now it seems all the tanks are combined. I have never seen that many snails, hundreds in each tank, in my life. Not writing a review just curious if anyone knows whats going on?

One common thing I have heard is just them taking a big hit because of the economy. At least the aquatic dept. Aquatics seem to be one of those hobbies that becomes expendable when money is tight. I do love the place and fish safari also.

What a shame was going down to va beach to visit family this coming weekend and was going to stop by and see if they have HC pots. But from the sound of it not worth stopping in.......

on a side note anyone have HC they can sell off?

Don't get me wrong. AJ is still the best option in the area for plants. Give them a try.
