Central PA shops?


Hi all.

Kinda new to 'serious' tropical fish keeping.... I am looking to see what all shops are within reasonable distance of Williamsport area, and if they're worth going to. There aren't hardly any choices locally. The past month or so, I've been to Pet World in Sunbury, That Pet Place in York, Pet Zone in Pittston & Nemo's in Norristown. I want to visit a couple in Harrisburg yet, and Corning/Horseheads NY area. Any recommendations as to where I need to hit? Are there any hard to find shops, or private breeders/sellers?

I don't have a crazy exotic list of fish to look for, but it would be nice to get good prices locally for the smaller species such as Lambchop Rasbora, Galaxy Rasbora, Emerald Danios, Hillstream Loaches & a few shrimp varieties. I know I can mail order, but I'm leery of the weather & costs. Plus, it's always good to see exactly which critter I am buying & possibly help locals out.

Thanks for any input!
~Matt

Hmm. Thanks. I guess I have seen her name, but kinda forgot about it. Seems to be a pretty strong aquaria region down there.

What kinds of fish, etc are you looking for?
Lizards? Frogs? Cichlids? Live bearers?

I'm mainly doing small fish + shrimp between a 37g + a 75g tank. I have guppies + dwarf cories now, and some emerald dwarf rasboras on the way. There's a list in my original post to give an idea. Mainly I like getting out + see what everyone has.

Rachel specializes in micro fish. Her reputation is second to none. TPP is close by too.
