Is there a Chinatown in Philadelphia? If so, take a look around. The aquarium shops of chinatown often yield valuable treasures for careful explorers. The plants are especially good.

Beautiful day today so I decided to take a stroll down Chinatown and see what I could find. After a few minutes of walking around I couldn't believe I actually found a fish store. Suddenly I was overcome with joy at the thought that I may have found a shop with some decent aquascaping stuff so I decided to walk in only to find a hallway with nothing but a door, a doorbell, and about five cameras pointed at the door. I tried to open the locked door but realized pretty quickly it was probably a good idea to avoid ringing the bell and just walk out of there.

i know this is an old post but i'm looking for some moss as well in the philadelphia area. i go to the hidden reef often and over the past month or two i havent seen it in stock. does anyone know of any stores in the area (i guess within about 30 minutes of philadelphia) that have it available?

ECA will order anything you ask for. So will nemo's. Nemo's has allot more plants in stock also. Along with all the high tech equipment. Price wise, I think they are the same for most things. The only choice is travel depending on where you are.
