Here's a link for the store's location:
http://www.oddballpets.com/node/8

And, although the website is currently a new WIP, you can check out the Home and the About Us pages for more info. I can personally vouch: an absolute treat for any serious fish or aquatic plant geek!

Thanks Rod

It's about 5 minutes from the South Side, you can get directions through the google map, or give them a call. Like Rod said, it's a great store to check out, very plant-friendly. I would suggest checking out the store even before the meeting.

I just wanted to say thank you to PAPAS for having me out to speak. The club, people and atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Special thanks to Efren, Cavan, and A and B Oddball Pets and Aquatics for putting it all together. Also, thank you to Tim for having us over after the meeting. Hope to see you all again soon....perhaps at AGA

Thanks again, I hope you all enjoyed the time as much as I did.

Next meeting is Sunday July 13, 2008. This will be an excursion to Racoon Creek State Park. We will be gathering 10am at A and B Oddball Pets and Aquatics. Club members familiar with the park will be bringing us on a native plant identification expedition. Bring your sunscreen and bug spray. If you are interested in native fish for the aquarium, bring snorkel gear. If you are interested in collecting native fish for your aquarium, bring your dipnets/seine nets and other gear. A 2008 PA fishing license is required for collecting fish.

In the event that the weather doesn't cooperate, we will be having a meeting indoors and plan on rescheduling for another Sunday.

Feel free to pm me for any questions.
