Mainly a good place for fish, but they sometimes have some decent plants as well:


Fish Town USA
196-33 Northern Blvd.
Flushing, New York
(718) 539-5396



A place further out in Long Island, Glen Cove Road, called Aquarium Adventures has some nicer plants but its a pretty good trek. Happy hunting!

I think the best stores in Manhattan & Queens have already been covered in the previous posts in this forum, in my opinion. (Non chain stores, that is)

Fishtown USA, New World Aquarium, Pacific Aquarium, Win Aquarium, and a couple in Astoria were discussed...

My favorite for plants are still Aquarium Adventures in Carle Place (nice but expensive) and Tropical Showcase in Hicksville.

Regarding Eco, its pretty expensive everywhere you go. I know the chain stores don't sell it. Depending on how much you need, it may be best to order it online. I know its going for $35 a bag at Aquarium Adventures, and Tropical Showcase never has it in stock. Not sure about the city stores.
