Coming home, need to find new places to feed my addiction :)


I'm coming home in 2 weeks for a bit before school starts again. Since I got into fish while I was at Michigan, I don't know of any places back home. I live in Scarsdale, and I will probably be in the city quite a bit. What are some good LFS's to visit (it doesn't matter if they are pricey because I will probably not be buying anything, just drooling over things)?

there are a few.

Fishtown USA<--Good plant selection...very good variety

Kazimir's <--this place can be hit or miss...but they have some crazy plants and fish sometimes.

Absolutely Fish Bit pricey...but cool display tanks

reef encounter <---if you go to Kazimirs, then stop by here too!

Fishtown USA is my stomping ground though...

I agree with all of these..I usually make sure I make my rounds to all 3, when I head down to Chinatown. They'll all within a few blocks of each other.

Anyone heard of Jawz in Elmsford? It says they have a shark pond, and I kinda want to check it out. House of Fins looks real good, I'll take a trip cause I live close to the border.
