Pittsburgh area fish shops


For those in this area; I was wondering what your favorite shops were. Was looking for something other than Elmer's. It's a shame most all of the independent guys are long gone and we're left with petco, pet smart, etc. To those places I say no thanks!

To my knowledge, the three 'best' independent fish stores that sell plants are Elmer's in Monroeville, Wet Pet's in the South Hill's area and (my favorite) Oddball in Baldwin. Oddball is going to be moving this year to Dormont (I think). Why not come to the PAPAS meeting today at Oddball and meet some of the other local planted aquarium enthusiasts?

Aquaword pet super center in avonworth is a pretty cool place with a lot of oddball stuff.

Hmmmm. I remember I went to a place there when I went up last February to pick up my dad's car with him... Wet pets or something like that. It was neat.

Aquaworld is awesome for coral frags; It is awful for plants and fish.
