Austin LFSs with plants:


I've gone to AquaTek and Amazonia for years, and occasionally find a gem at Aquadome and Rivers & Reefs, but I was wondering if there was another place I should try. It seems that there are some others I may not have tried yet and I want to make sure that I'm not missing out. I did go to River City Aquatics and Horizon back when they first opened, but I live in far south Austin and don't make it up that way very often. Do either of these places carry plants? Are there any new shops I should know about? I hear there's a new store on Burnet called "Deep Blue Aquariums", but I've not gone by to look for it.


All suggestions are appreciated

They are now closed, along with horizon pets, they didnt last long. Their store wasnt that nice either. I agree, stay with aquatek, Bruce and those guys over there are real good guys.

It's really more of a bird store but I like the owner at Gallery of Pets. They have a decent selection of fish, but last time I was in there I did not see much in the way of plants.

They're on 183 near Duval which is quite a ways north for a south austinite, but not much more of a hike if you are already at Aquatek.
