We have a small pet store in Ashtabula called Edgewood Pet Center. They get new inventory in on Thursday or Friday. Kind of basic fish stock and they have limited plants in pretty poor condition. Their tanks are clean, fish usually healthy and they are family owned for several generations. I go to Buzz n B's Aquarium and Pets in Erie, Pa. They have a large variety of fish, limited plants. But I usually find something I can use and their fish are always healthy. I have resorted to online buying or swapping plants from tank to tank, since mine have been growing nicely. I am low low tech. Mosses, crypts, vals, buces, anubias, etc.. Learned the hard way and spent too much money on plants before I learned what grows in my lazy tanks. lol. I can usually get my husband to take a fish trip with me every few months, so have checked out RMS awhile back. Also, went to Jurassic Pets in Mayfield but was very disappointed in their tank care. Bought a few shrimp. I guess it depends on how far you want to drive. Fish around, plants, not so much in Northeast Ohio. look in the classifieds on here. Best plants I have gotten, so far.
