I am from warminster (Philly burb). Quakertown has a decent pets plus and there is a store in the qmart that is awesome for driftwood. The fish factory and hidden reef are always nice to check out even if just to get ideas or browse. Captain nemo's (I think it is called pets plus natural or something now) is pretty decent an they have a large show tank and two headed turtle to keep everyone interested. In terms of petsmarts/Petcos the Petco next to the willow grove mall is my favorite.

Homer8, you know The Reef & the Fish factory both will special order fish? No guarentees (of course!) on a specific time frame though. Dirtytankman, you are my neighbor! I used to live in Warminster a couple of years ago & now reside in Hatboro-Horsham area.

I went to both of them today. Neither had BBGs but I requested them at the hidden reef and at fish factory they said they get them in sometimes but he said they cost between $10 and $30 each. I think he is out of his mind to try and charge that much. I was also looking for a refractometer but didn't see any at either place.

I am sorry you didnt have any luck! I am afraid theres not much else in the area unless you want to take a long drive. Have you tried looking online? $30 may seem like a bargain when you add the additional cost for shipping when you purchase online.
