Ed is awesome, and he always takes care of me. I've spent so much money there that he knows I'm going to and hooks me up every time!

I went to the planted aquarium store on Oakland park rd today, and I have to say that it lived up to my expectations and the reviews on here. They have a great selection of plants, fish and equipment. I bought 4 species of fish, some amano shrimp, and numerous plants, as well as a 10"x10" rimless nano aquarium and filter for my wife's office. The fish and tanks in the store all look very healthy and the staff was really knowledgeable.

I consider myself fairly experienced in planted tanks, and I've set up everything from high tech heavily planted community tanks to no tech bowls and pretty much everything in between, but I wouldn't say I am an expert. The staff really bridges the gap between someone who has a handle on the hobby but still needs some advice time to time.

The prices on equipment and plants seem good. The fish and inverts are pretty steep. $9 for a single crystal shrimp is pretty high IMO, and 4.99 for a CRS is a lot. I used to buy a dozen CRS for $5.99.
Expensive but probably worth it since they are all quality stock. I don't put a ton of fish in my tank so it's not a bug deal for me, but for guys with huge community tanks with 40 fish, it would be a sizable investment.

Over all it's a really good store.
I did buy some rocks that I left on the counter by accident when I left, so I will call them tommorow to see how they handle it. The guys were very nice and gave me a few freebies, so I expect them to be understanding since I live in west palm (45 mins+ away).

Go here. Even if you don't need anything, it's a cool place to check out
