It's on Veteran's Hwy about 5 minutes from Hidden Reef. I used to be friends with a guy who was married to a girl that "worked" at that club. And some of the other "people" who worked there. I also really don't like the Fish Factory.

the fish factory that is. :p
It is a dump. But they sometimes have good fish at decent prices. I picked up a couple of kuhli loaches at fish factory for 4.99 a few months ago. They no zero about freshwater fish however. Guy tried to sell me teacup stingrays saying they were fully grown and I could keep 3 or 4 in a 55 with several discus. I just shook my head and walked away.
Oh, the strip joint? Well, nothing helps your disgust over the fish factory like a good, quality lap dance....lol

I placed the plant order this morning for everybody who had something on it. So for Fishies, ThinkTank, Jreich, Moon, and KingPlakat. Pretty sure that was everybody. I dug through this thread and my mountain of PMs to double check I had everything. I'll let you guys know when the order ships. It might not be until monday which would be a Wednesday arrival. I forget how this supplier handles Friday orders. I threw on a few extra bonus plants like Madagascar Lace and a monster Anubias Berteri mother plant. If anybody local wants them they will be up for grabs. Otherwise I'll post them in the SnS. Thanks guys. It really helps cut shipping costs when I can get a bunch of people to order.

Yeah, their fish room isn't the best, but they have some. The equipment selection is quite nice, though. Not the same stuff everyone else carries.
