Thanks for the 411. Any reason you don't go if you don't mind me asking? Thanks.

Dude- they were giving out free brine shrimp all night-
They should have been giving out free K.Y. for the "Aye-Eff-In" instead.

at 25% off it was still 400% what I would pay at my lfs, and their plant selection on a freshwater standpoint was awful. $9.99 for sword plants, $39.99 for (an albeit large) kleiner bar, but c'mon. The only fish I would have considered buying were the black veil angels- which were hybrid blacks and not true black, were beaten half to death. They had net marks all over them- huge white stripes where the scales had been beaten off by some dummy who doesn't know better(or worse doesn't care). They had 3" discus for $129.00. 2" red rainbows (may have been Madagascar or Iranian but not sure on the ID) for $39.99 a piece- they were still juvies! Harlequin rasbosas for $4.99. One madagascar lace bulb, with one leaf that was brown, hanging on by a thread for $20. Java fern plantlets with 1/2-2" leaves, 2 to 4 leaves on a plant for something nuts- I want to say I remember them being 7.99, but in retrospect it seems so ridiculous I could be wrong. I would have been willing to be grabbed by the short and curlies for a single rare plant that I would have had to ship from Singapore for $80 - but watersprite and java ferns- NO WAY.

That being said their SW people couldn't be happier- so if your looking for salt water I would still not nix the visit.

Even if you're fresh water- take a trip and check out Pub 46 across the street- its a pretty cool bar- so the trip wasn't completely wasted.
