Central FL Aquarium Stores


I would like recommendations for aquarium stores in the central Florida area, preferably someplace with a nice plant selection, ornamental shrimp, etc. I've been to Posieden's in Daytona, but I tend to be more in the Sanford, Altamonte, Apopka area, and occasionally downtown Orlando.
Thanks guys!

I've only been there once because of how far it was to me but Fishy Business in Longwood had some nice stuff. A local buddy of mine also told me to go check out Sea Life in Apopka for plants.

The ones I know of in the Orlando are are Pet Bazaar in Casselberry, but no plants there. There's also Darkwater Aquatics kinda downtown, I'm not sure of the exact place but searching the name will find it easy for you, and they have a great plant selection and I know you can at least get RCS from them, maybe some other colored ones too.

I'll checkout Pet Bazaar, thanks. I was just in Darkwater and found it to be very dirty; I don't know if they were just having an off week, but there was stuff all over the floors, the tanks were messy and it smelled.

We had a seriously busy weekend and just got in a ton of stone and substrate, so there was some pebbles and dust on the floor. Always give LFS a second chance, we are always rotating stock and doing upgrades, so sometimes the place is a mess. We are preparing for an event this weekend, so plants are sparse until I pick up the shipment tomorrow.
