Just Moved to Crossville


Just looking to see if there's anybody around to swap plants with, suggestions for fish stores (I'm already assuming I've gotta go to Nashville or Knoxville).

Also, what's the water like here? I'm used to hard well water with very high TDS.

I don't know about nashville, but in knoxville there is the aquarium connection it is a nice place, limited amounts of plant species they did have some fl sunset crypts pretty cheap the ast time we were there. Their is a second one in knox forget it's name, but their plant tank when we went was over run with blue green algae so yeah but they did have some unusal live stock and had better stone/drfitwood than the aquarium connection, as far as water I have no clue ours city water here east of knox is hard , if we could meet up in knox sure I am sure we could swap plants

Thank you! I'm sure I'll be setting up a low tech, low light tank, so I'll have mostly Crypts, Bacopa stems, etc. I've been out of the game since I left Tampa in March 2012, so I'm a little rusty with names.

I would probably get most of my plants on here, so stores don't need to have plants, but a decent selection of healthy fish and reasonably knowledgeable/reputable is a must. Otherwise, I'll just go to a chain store.

I'm in Hendersonville....not incredibly close, but any stems I send to would get there in a day. Let me know if you ever want anything!

Cookeville has a nice LFS. Good price on plants and also they are locally grown. Great freshwater selection.

It is called Exotic Tropicals. The staff there is phenomenal. I used to buy all of my plants there before I switched to reefs.

Exotic Tropicals is and has been an amazing store since I can remember. I am glad to hear they are still open, I frequented that location while I was in college at TTU.

I went there to check out their saltwater stuff and dry goods for both fresh and salt. It's an okay store. Lots of freshwater fish selection, but that wasn't what was on my mind at the time, so I didn't look closely. Didn't look at plants at all. I was mostly there for saltwater stuff and was too disappointed to enjoy anything else. :/
