Hi everyone! I am new to the forum and from Pottstown, PA! If anyone local is interested I have a bag of coral rocks ("Reef Rocks"). They are new and unused as I got them wanting to do a Sulawesi set-up, but then changed my mind. The bag is opened, but they were never in a tank. There are 7 fist sized rocks.

I would love to do a trade for plant trimmings (anything low light/low tech) or for some RCS or other Neo Shrimp if anyone is interested. If you want them and have something else to trade make me an offer!

Thanks! Do you have any tips on where to get fish/plants locally? So far I have been doing Petco/Petsmart and Diane's, but didn't know if there were any other mom and pop type places to check out?

Pottstown, but your location says NEPA. You confused?

As was previously stated Nemos in Norristown is good....AZ pets & ponds (or something like that) has decent selection....I think they started as a POND store and have slowly expanded.....they're in the strip mall with Boscovs East in Exeter....Their Livestock is hit or miss....
For Hardgoods I recomend to either drive to That Pet Place in Lancaster or HR-Hidden Reeef and FF- Fish Factory in Lower Bucks (Bristol?). The FF and HR are about mile apart- can hit both at same time. Both of those have good Livestock as well...

Welcome aboard.

I have to say after going to Nemos quite a few times, I find them less and less impressive. If you can get to Aquarium Center in Clementon (NJ) or The Hidden Reef as others have mentioned, I would do that. I mean if you're willing to go to Lancaster then the trip to either of those places isn't horrible. Always fun to check everyone out though, even if it's over time.

Forgot to mention Msjinkzed. She is out of York, Pa and specializes in nano fish and inverts. I'm planning or hitting her up when I set up my 75. You can find her on here.

Thanks everyone! MsJinzd is great! I am getting some stuff from her soon! I am gonna check out Captain Nemo's some time this week. I am also going to plan a trip to That Fish Place soon. My son LOVES fish so I think it will be fun to bring him to see all the tanks

Welcome. I live in Lansdale but work in Pottstown. I don't have any shrimp right now, but I'm trying to get a breeding colony of painted fire red shrimp going. I haven't had much luck yet but I'll keep you in mind as I don't have any experience with shipping them. But I will tell you that if you want quality livestock and/or plants, you can't go wrong buying from the many people that sell on this site. I've had shrimp shipped to my house on MANY occasions, and have never had any issues with DOA (dead on arrival).

As far as LFS options, one place no one has mentioned yet (I think) is in Harleysville called Fins, Feathers, Paws and Claws. I stop in every once in awhile. Like most places, their selection is hit or miss. Their prices can also be a little whacky. They have another store located in the Quakertown Farmers market as well. I recommend checking both out.

Does anyone live in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia? I'm looking for different kinds of shrimp and live-beards.

Paradise (Lancaster), PA here. Any local Angelfish breeders? Any other local or private source of fish besides Petsmart or That Fish Place?
