Best fish store in Hartford Area?

Title says it all, what is people's favorite lfs in the general Hartford area? Or maybe like central CT in general?
And why do you like that fish store? plants? fish? service? prices?

Check out ctfishstores online it lists all the stores in the state. Alot of stores also post shipments and sales there. Aquatic Wildlife in Manchester is great selection of plants and fish with good advice. The prices there are very high but they have good sales most holidays. Like any store though it depends on when they get their shipments. All Pets Club is my go to source currently with stores in Southington, Wallingford, And Branford.

Bump: Blake's Aqua Den is my go to source for fish its a brand new store in an old area of Meriden. He used to be the fish room manager at All Pets in wallingford. Pretty good prices and good selection of nano fish and shrimp.

Blake used to be at Magic Pet in Wethersfield years ago.
West Hartford Puppy Center used to be my favorite fish store- but they are gone now. I get fish from people like Rachel O'Leary and Frank's and plants from people online.

Ed was originally at Magic Pet but when they closed he moved to All Pets i think. My go to place for plants is all pets but i would love to check out some store up in Northhampten Mass. Also maybe House of Fins in Greenwich. Seems like theres no good stores for plants local.

aeh thats not too promising. I've been in southern RI for a while now so i am more familiar with the stores there. I've been leaning on Emmons Fish in Simsbury to get more of a planted variety, but they're not one to change. Pretty good fish store tho.

Just need a planted place lol

I hate ordering online for shipping. Some petcos have a really great selectionof plants in the tanks others have nothing. Petsmart has a great selection of tissue cultured plants, but your paying for it to be tissue cultured. Petsmart is always worth to check out. Just need an ada store...
