Insane amounts of jealousy and envy!!! I spent almost 11 hours at work today and don't get another day off until Sunday! ENVY!

Oh wait. I can't get more fish anyway. WHAT AM I THINKING?!

I could fit in more shrimp. Technically. Except for the part where I doubt I can keep anything less hardy than neos. And if I got more neos, they'd interbreed, and I would have weird mutant shrimp. Which would also be cool, honestly.

... not that I particularly would look forward to the six week quarantine ... ugh.

Ed, I dont think my lap can handle that. LOL

Don't want to become a disability after a trip.

I don't think I can make it this week though. I got so much arrangement this week at work. They might know I am planning to take off... LOL

F22 - I was in your store on Saturday. I love the selection you have, and the setup. You definitely had much more than I anticipated. I was told you will have assassin snails later this week? I already picked up a few, but I may be in the market for more. Also, I didn't notice a live plant section (the wife was hanging on my leg like a nagging child though, so I may have missed it). Do you guys have one?

Guys.....definitely worth checking this store out!!

Which store is this? and is it anywhere near Rt. 22, sorry I'm from Brooklyn. I'll be out to NJ again in a week or 2.

Ah man......I would totally drive, but can't do a week day right now. Just started a new position at work, so don't want to bang out so soon.

Yeah, Route 4 is not even close to 22. haha....F22 is the user name for the guy from the store.

Hey F22, get that dang plant section up!! I'm always shopping around for plants locally.

We need to organize a Saturday trip with two weeks' notice so I can whine about how I need a day off before I have a nervous breakdown. Another one.

Wait a minute. STILL can't buy more fish. BAD BRAIN! NO COOKIE FOR BRAIN.

just so everyone knows, i mostly go just to look at fish. Besides those pygmae cories and some blue shrimp, i didnt pick up most of the awesome exotics that we came across on the last tour. Jake was a good influence on me :)

If i were to rank the local area, (Western) Long Island, Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn and NJ, Id say probably wager:
NJ, Manhattan, Queens, Long Island, Brooklyn

If you ever do a Saturday I'd go, can only take 3 people unless someone wants to it in the back cargo area. You remember my little Subaru Albert. But there are Brooklyn people who I can at least fit.

Oh crap, far from Rt. 22 that's a bummer...

Yeah, it's north from Rt. 22, ranging from Hackensack to Paramus (all the stores, that is). And if you guys do a Saturday, my offer is still out from the last time. I can pick up New Yorkers from the PATH train in Hoboken, drive everyone around and drop off. I have a mini van, so I can fit 5 people....6 if you guys are willing to squeeze a 3rd passenger in the back seat.

Awesome feedback and contributions. will definitely keep it in mind for the next trip. Tomorrow will be our second attempt at traversing all of the LFS in the vicinity. We simply could not squeeze everything in the last time. This time around, have an NEW group hoping to raise the bar and take on the challenge !

There were several varieties of liveatock that we considered but didn't get. Found the figure8 pea puffers for $3.50, cpos for $7.99, dwarf cories for 1.79. We managed to pickup random plants and a bulldog pleco.

For the tank, its $350. Next large ada delivery is 21dec. The last two shops. That was missed the last time turned out to be pretty good.
