Hey Joon. I don't recognize the zip code but there are a few decent fish stores in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas. Depends on what your looking for also and you definition of "decent." I'm not aware of any that put a lot of emphasis on plants. One new store is East Coast Aquatics near the airport.
http://www.eastcoastaquatics.com/

Unfortunately, I find myself driving further and further for a decent lfs.

Hey Joon,
The Aquarium Center in Clementon, N.J. is one of the better LFS in the area. A great selection of fish, and a whole wall in front dedicated to plants.http://www.aquariumcenter.biz/ . If you want to drive out a little farther, That Fish Place is a must see. http://www.thatpetplace.com/

That Fish Place is about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hour drive from most places in Philadelphia.

I also like The Hidden Reef, and Aquarium Center.
