Or maybe a reputable place online?
FYI, the reason that Albany Aquarium has high prices is because they quarantine all fish for a minimum of 2 weeks before sale. The raised floor portion is the back is raised because the whole section below it is a quarantine room. All new stock is placed in the lower section (not accessible to the public) and treated as necessary before put up for sale. I have never found/heard of another store that does this in my 20 something years of this hobby!I'm rather fond of Albany Aquarium.
Their prices are a bit on the high side, but pretty much all of their tanks and critters are in good shape whenever I go there, and everyone I've talked to seems to be pretty knowledgeable.
That place is a sauna though. :/
hyaku paasento worth it tbh. The freshwater section is kinda hidden. Their plants are basically what makes it worth it, but they have some nice fish too. Kinda pricey, but definitely worth it (for the plants).Is Neptune Aquatics still worth the visit? The last time I was in there was a few years ago and it was for some salt water fish. I don't recall them having a freshwater selection.
SuperWay looks awesome. I'll go stop by on Thursday or Friday.
Thanks for all of the great info guys! I can't wait to start my new hobby.
