Just a heads up, Waterbury Aquarium has definitely upgraded their plant selection. It's a good range of stuff and is actually labelled instead of just all being thrown in the tank together. There was even a lace plant last time I was there. The prices are higher than you'd find online, of course, but no shipping and you know what it's going to look like in your tank. I'm definitely going to be spending more time there.

the owner Chris always takes amazing care of me. he orders whatever i ask for & will do deals for his repeat customers. i trade fish for fish or for credit & always leave happy. not to mention the stock he keeps is always great.

he also has a nice selection of tanks, backgrounds, cool decorations & all the supplies you could need.

i dont mean to be overly excited about one place but the dude's shop is the best around & def worth a 20-30 minute ride for me. if you go, tell him RONNIE ROACH sent ya. might get yourself a discount lol

I just bought plants and bulbs to upgrade to real planted tanks (instead of "let's stick this plant in there and see if it will grow in this dingy light" planted tanks). Chris was super helpful about the bulbs and all the plants. I just love the guy.

I go to aquatic wildlife in Manchester,CT. Derek the owner is very knowledgable on fresh and salt. I purchased my 60" 100 Gallon with solid wood stand, glass canopy and t8 lights for $599.00, he has a few left still.

Let him know I sent you in,

Brian Munchie

He does it all! Over 11,000 gallons of fresh and salt. From small fish to monsters! He gets his live plan and coral shipment on Fridays. He carries quite a few cool lines of foods and "chemicals" even the "Easy Life" line of aquatic chemicals, now all I use!

Awesome, sounds good. I might have to take a field trip at some point. Thanks for the tip!

Yeah I just found this place last weekend while on a search for java moss. Theyve got an amazing amount of tanks. Was very cool. Would have liked to stay longer but had an impatient escort with me. Def going to head back there when I have a bit more time.

How about Greenwich Aquaria- decent?

Any other local places worth checking out?
