From Emporia; spent a lot of time in Wichita many years back; and currently live in a suburb of KC...the drive between Wichita and Emporia was too boring!

Pet World of Newton is where I work and we carry 50-60 different types of plants. If you want to do a planted tank we are the place to go hands down as we don't keep fish with our plants. The tanks are specifically for plants.

316-283-8400 is the shop number. We are also thinking about putting in a co2 refill station

Reviving this thread...

I am just South of Newton. Petworld is good, but the Petworld in ICT (same shopping center where Fins and Feathers was) is better. Tad took over that one and all of the planted tank knowledge is there with him. They occasionally get in some shrimp as well.

Newton is fine for picking up necessaries. I did get a clump of dwarf sag there and it is doing well.

Black Pearl is good, if you can be there when the store is open. I have been able to go inside once out of 3 tries, I have learned to call first before I go!

I lived in Topeka for thirteen years. My grandmother lives in Anthony in Harper County to the south of Wichita. I passed through town a lot on my way to see her. I also used to pass through Wichita to go to Fort Sill Oklahoma. Wichita State University sent me to Puebla, Mexico in 1989 to study Spanish for six weeks. The professors had a comprehensive well established program down there.

I was putzing around with a 55 gallon tank at the time. It was a pathetic failure. I tried to diffuse CO2 with an inverted clear glass casserole dish weighted down with two bricks on top. There was no regulator or needle valve. When too much gas was injected underneath the casserole dish would flip over. I thought the giant reactor would work over the course of some hours but it didn't. It was like a little miniature Fukushima scenario.

I now live in Garden City, which is 3 hours or so to the west. I doubt there are too many of us in SW Kansas so I just decided to post in the Wichita thread instead.

My best luck has been Pet Supplies Solution at 21st and Rock, decent stock but clean. Marine Extremes and 21st and Woodlawn is more on the Salt side, with some fresh, on the high priced side. Sea Creatures has freshwater, but I've been hit and miss with fish there. Petland West is nice and clean, but they want a Premium for their fish and plants. Petland East is a disgusting joke of a live fish store. I buy most my plants from Petco, they have some sectioned off so they don't have post snails. I still alum treat mine though. Petworld is great for supplies and has a ton of selection, I just inspect the tank really well to make sure everything looks healthy. I bought a breeding pair of GBR from there and have had them over a year. Tails and Scales in Debry is like a smaller version of Petworld, good selection you just need to inspect everything really well. I am overall disappointed with the fish stores in Wichita. A city this size you would think you can get a quality fish and plant store without having to pay a Premium to get it.
