LFS New York City update... BETA 1.0


No one in queens ever had them, try the warehouse on Glen Cove road, Pacific had some at times
Tricky to find the real ones I gave mine away, when they get above 3 inches there is no point, they get too smart and start eating regular food, lol

If anyone heads over there would they mind picking up some extra SAE? I would throw some plants your way for the trouble.

I know this is the NY thread, but I also know that a lot of you do have an interest in NJ stores, especially Ridgewood Aquarium (ADA store). I stopped by there yesterday, and there was a sign on the door that said "Now by Appointment Only". So just in case any of you had plans to go, you need to call them first or go on their website to make an appointment. Man was I disappointed....

I guess so. They opened shop May/June(?) and they're moving this coming July already too. I know it's hard for them because it's just 3 guys and they do installs, so I'm sure scheduling is difficult. It sucks because lfs trips are always spontaneous for me. With a wife and 3 kids at home, it's kinda hard for me to schedule anything. It's more like "oh crap....free time. Better get out now while I have a chance" hahaha....

Not sure. I just saw the signs on the window. I went there to buy some rocks for two new nano tanks and possibly some driftwood. Again, I can't tell you how devastated I was. Just trying to get everything in order to set these bad boys up this weekend. Good thing I hit up another lfs out that way, or else I would have really been upset. It's not super far for me, but it is a drive and out of the way. I know I'm digressing here, but I'm like a little kid right now. I'm all excited to get these tanks set up, and then THIS happens.

I have to check them out on facebook. The sign said they are updating there. I can't check at work though, so maybe tonight when I get home. I am curious to see where this is all going with those guys.

I "like" their Facebook page but they rarely update it. I was really looking forward to having a store that was geared more towards aqua scaling then a general fish store. Oh well. Maybe if they can make more profit and hire some folks they can go back to being open full time.

I sure hope so. I really like that store. It's small, but they have the best plant selection out there, and the prices are reasonable. They started carrying some nano type fish as well. Got my aquasoil from there....they have really nice wood and rocks....man, I hope they either upsize the store or get it together s they can be open full time. Maybe I should ask for a job there on the weekends....

What are they selling on Ebay, and how do you know it's them? Just curious...

Gotcha. Again, just curious, how are the prices on there? Shipping? I wouldn't buy off there as I am not far from the store, of course. I was just wondering.
