Fish stores in the area?


So recently I noticed a couple solid LFS in the DC/MD/VA area closed. At the moment, I only know about Congressional Aquarium in Rockville, and Beltway Aquarium in Greenbelt--actually a pretty good place, the people there are friendly and they have great prices on driftwood.

Do you guys know of any other places worth looking at in the area?

Tropical Lagoon on Georgia Ave near Down town Silver Spring. The only way you will see the store is by the fish wall paper on the front door. Been around for years. Small with 2 small rows of Common Freshwater Fish and 1 Small row of Saltwater fish. They take good care of there fish. I would not say the same for there Plants. The plants are in a 50g and 29g in a corner in the back of the store. Bunched plants are all ways crunched together and look sick. The other tank has potted plants with dead fish, pots falling over and half dead. Dry supplies just your common stuff. Don't come here looking for something hard to find.
At one time not to long ago in the last 5 years or so there was 7 fish stores in Montgomery County.

There is also a very good club in the area, the Capital Cichlid Association (http://www.capitalcichlids.org/).

House of tropicals is the only solid one left in the Baltimore area.
We used to be home to some fantastic stores - they are all long gone.
Aquarium Center in the heyday was awesome.
