Thanks.

Old Town Aquarium looks like a great store!

I get most of my fish from Living Sea Aquarium on Devon Ave. They are expensive, but the fish are healthy. They don't have a particularly great selection of plants however.

Go to Old Orchard Aquarium in Skokie. They have a great selection of aquatic plants. There is one guy named Ben who works there that knows a lot about aquatic plants.

Yes, the petland in naperville has a nice selection. Picked up 3 SAE's a couple weeks ago and they are doing great. Can't say much for their prices though.....

I checked out Old Orchard Aquarium, and they do have a superb selection of plants, fish and equipment. I might get my plants from there.
