Pet stores around KC

Hey ya'll just moved to Kansas city, well actually Lees Summit. Looking for a pet store that has some decent fish/plants...most of the petcos/petsmarts i've seen around here are a bit sketchy as far as their selections and quality.

Thanks for the help!

Hi there. If you don't mind the drive, there's a fabulous store in Lawrence, Kansas called Pet World. I used to live in Lawrence and spent a lot of time in the store. They have an outstanding fish selection, with a lot of fairly rare fish, and their plant selection (including equipment) is pretty good too. Like I said, it's a bit of a drive for you (about an hour or better), but I can almost guarantee you won't be disappointed!

Yea... I have yet to find a really good store around here. I live in Overland Park and have tried driving to a couple different stores in KCK and KCMO but was very disapointed... There's a Petland in Olathe (by I-35 and 135th ST) that has a decent selection. Not that great, but definitely a LOT better than petsmart/petco. I bought everything for my new tank online (except the tank itself), but I'd like to buy fish in person... just so I can see what I'm getting. So I'm considering the drive to Lawrence if that store is really good.

Here's the link to the local fish club. The site also lists all the area fish stores.

^ get on that site. You'll find only a few of us plant nerds, but lots of help with the fish, etc. A good place to get equipment too, if you need any used tanks, etc. We can always use more plant guys to trade amongst!

oh and there's a ton of fish breeders on there who can get you whatever you need. Even a few smalltime local importers who can get you bulk amounts of tetras, etc on the cheap.
