Hey folks. It's been a while since I've been around but after some moving and settling in, I've taken some time to update and get reacquainted here. Gosh I miss this place. I didn't see this forum when I first joined, but so glad to have found it now !! This might be lengthy, sorry.
As others have inquired about some LFS
's around CT, I have been to the following :
Greenwich Aquaria, Post Rd., Greenwich. Nice place, mostly SW
, a little pricey for me.
House of Fins, Bruce Park Dr., Greenwich. Great place, EXCELLENT MIX of both SW
. A little pricey as well but I found that an old neighborhood friend works there and takes AWESOME care of me. Joe is holding a Discus for me till payday. He ROCKS and his (and everyone else) knowledge and commitment are impeccable !!
Fish Bowl Pets, Hope St., Stamford. Great place !! Mostly FW
, a little SW
and some small pets/reptiles. Have dealt with him before, is always reasonable and very knowledgeable. Just left yesterday with 2 (CT bred) Discus. They're not by any means "show" pieces but after he said "Sundays are 20% off day", well no need to explain lol.
Statewide Pets, Bull Hill Ln., Orange. I go there too much !!! The father is a wealth of knowledge !! Will get just about ANYTHING you want. Always hand selects his stock and comes up with some of the craziest fish I've ever seen. All FW
, and a ton of everything else from birds to rats, cats, and dogs.
Slither and Swim, Saw Mill Rd., West Haven. Only been a couple times and don't know enough to say anything good, bad, or indifferent.
Never been to but now that others have shared, I look forward to a road trip in the future.
Exotic Fish & Corals, Milford
Blakes Aqua Den
Hope this finds everybody well. Also I'm looking to set up and start cycling a 6 gal SW
nano this week. SW
is all new to me and I know it's much harder to start so small, but I'm doing it more for the experience than a show piece. That will happen when i go from renter to owner.
