Except for the "DVAGA sponsored tank"

Yes, they are the same...actually the one by you is a little bigger I stopped by the one near you about 2-3 years ago.

I'm new to the Forum and happened upon this thread...

I was in the store a few days ago getting supplies for my first attempt at a planted aquarium. My fiance and I couldn't keep our eyes off your tank! It's beautiful! I wish I could've been there when you set it up...

You used to live in South Florida a couple of years ago, or were you visiting friends/family?

I checked this place out again recently and I was pretty impressed by the plant selection at least in comparison to every other shop Ive been to in the area. They had a ton of HC and it was in great shape. I bought about six pieces at about 3 bucks a piece. Nearly enough to carpet 2/3 of my 20 gallon. Just thought Id give everyone a heads up since its usually hard to find, especially in good portions and at good prices. Rest of the plant selection was pretty good, most of the basic stuff with some rarer plants but beware the mondo grass!

Edit: Also the DVAGA tank was pretty sweet. They seem to be taking care of it well.

I lived there for about 4 years......in coconut creek. I miss it there and try to make it down once a year or so. I am a little behind.

Thanks for the update Shady....I havent been there in quite some time. I am going to get a good size school of fish in a few weeks.

shipping costs. For example, I just bought two square foot pieces
blind from SeaCorals.com; one was branchy and useful, while the
other was a useless dense knot. the point being that for the money
I spent with SeaCoral only yielding one good piece, I could have
bought the piece of my choice on ebaY even with shipping costs.
Whatever you EVER do stay away from SeaCorals! If you can buy local do so but if you DO go online avoid SeaCorals! Just for fun google "SeaCorals" and see what you find and take a trip through the Better Business Bureau or take a look at them locally at...
