AFA San Francisco


Just wanted to share with some of the members here pictures of AFA in San Francisco.

I picked up a Do!Aqua 60-F while I was there. Kinda wished I got the ADA 60-F instead. Next time I'm gonna get ADA for sure.

Wow.

I'd hate to try to net fish out of a couple of those "display" tanks.

I live 5 minutes walking away from AFA. Definitely one of my favorite stores.

The 180p has been torn down and a new scape is on the way. They rescape it every year I think.

Yes, it is the main display tank in the front of the store. I didn't know if it was a new display tank or a torn down tank because it was my first time there. Wish I would of seen that display tank, must be very very nice.

I don't think its an ADA product. Most of their stuffs are ADA product but not all. I would say the store has about 85% ADA, Do!Aqua, and Archaea product and 15% other brands.

Probably that is why they don't have a pricing for fish or plants on those tank. I would hate to fish out some fish from those tanks.

That's an archaea brand LED i think, not the ADA aquasky. Looks very similar though! They were growing that tank out for the longest time using 2 of the archaea led's that everyone is using on this board.
