Travelling to NYC from Brazil in April

I would like to visit some local fish store while in the city, any tips for a fish/planted tank hobbyist?
I'm also interested in buying some ecoexotic e-series or sat+ led fixtures. Is there any store that could have it in stock?

My favorite stores in the city are Monster in Queens, and Pacific in Manhattan. But there are a lot of other great places throughout the city. You'd have to contact them to see if they have those lights in stock. Monster is best to contact through Facebook, and Pacific is best through their website or to physically call. One of these places might be able to help, or order for you.

Definitely take a look at Fauna, located at west 87th and Broadway - I absolutely love that store, and whatever they don't have in stock, they'll do a special order for you. Plus, they are conservation-oriented. Most of the livestock comes from the owner - who personally breeds most of the birds, reptiles, etc - or (for fish) from a family owned farm.
