Made my first trip to Fishtown USA on Northern Boulevard this past Monday, and I must say that I was very impressed. I went there looking for rocks for my hardscape, and their selection beat any Long Island fish store that I've been to, including Aquarium Adventures.
Also, they had a tank full of bee shrimp, with black and white stripes, for $1.50 each, and it was the first time I've ever seen those offered for sale. Usually its just cherries, amanos, and ghosts. They also had small neon tetras 3 for $1, which is a great price if they live.
Overall, great selection. The live plants were very expensive, however, and I'm certain I will not make that store my destination for plants (Aquarium Adventures in Carle Place has a ton of plants including HC, HM and Glosso, and Tropical Showcase in Hicksville takes the cake for bunched plants and vals).
So yea, I suggest a trip there if you live in Queens/BK or Nassau.
