Yesterday I discovered a new store in SE Portland in the Sellwood District called Aquariums Live
. They're actually a couple of years old but only started advertising in the Yellow Pages this year (which explains how I've missed it for so long). They're not better than The Wet Spot, but they're comparable to Pet 'N' Pond in Clackamas. The owner Tony is a very nice fellow, and his views on the hobby mirror much of mine--including his love of planted tanks. He just sold his 120G display tank (has a picture of it in the store if you're curious) and will be setting up a 500G planted tank soon!
Check it out if you have the time, and if you can't find any Cryptocoryne lutea, you can blame me.
