Hey guys! I am coming from Aquarium Advice. While I love it there, the regional forums aren't as active as they are here. I have been out of the hobby for almost 2 years due to college and everything, but since me and my brother got our own apartment here in Astoria, I am getting going again. I am currently fishless cycling a ten gallon that I am planning on doing low tech planted. I have done low light before, but I didn't do it right and it sucked.
Since I am from LI, I don't know of any LFS here in Queens. The only store I know of is Petland right on Steinway, but it is the crappiest store I have ever been in...they didn't even have Prime dechlorinator. Anyway, I did a search on here and couldn't find much for Queens (forgive me if I didn't look hard enough), but would love some recommendations of an LFS that I can get to by walking or by taking the N Q or R, preferably one with a large selection of plants. I have a car but I only like to drive it to Queens College and nowhere else, so walking or subway is preferred. I live off of 30th ave...I frequently walk up and down Broadway and Steinway but I have yet to see a LFS on either.
