Well since there is nothing here, yet it is a sticky, maybe i should add something. I live in montpelier, VT and have experience with two LFS. The first is where I have bought all of our fish and plants so far, called The Pet Advantage in South Burlington. Very large selection of both fresh and salt water tanks. They also have three large tanks dedicated to FW plants. in the front of the store is a gorgeous indoor Koi pond built with local rock from Grand Isle. If you go to this store and need information, Jason is the guy to talk to about all things aquarium.

The second is a store I have yet to purchase any livestock from yet, but they are a bit more local (for me). They are in montpelier, called the Pet Deli. They have a bunch of freshwater tanks, and also a turtle tank and an amphibian tank. The also have 4 nice big tanks for FW plants, though the last time I visited they were quite empty (I'm assuming they were waiting for a shipment, but not positive.) They have a nice selection of aquarium supplies, decorations, and driftwood. Prices seem to be reasonable. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, I have spoke to them about wanting certain species of fish, and they told me they can order just about anything that I want and it will come in with their next shipment.

I definitely recommend shopping at either of these stores for your livestock. They have a much better selection and take better care of their livestock than any of the box stores around.

No reference to pet stores in New Hampshire? Shocking!

I'd like to mention my own stores (shameless self-promotion, I know) here in New Hampshire, the Claremont Pet Center and Lebanon Pet Center. We carry a very large selection of freshwater and marine fish and invertebrates, freshwater plants, and reptiles, we offer free special orders, and we can get in pretty much anything anyone could ever want.

After Irene passed through, we renovated our Lebanon location, so we've got a fresh new look and an even bigger selection than what we had previously. Definitely worth at least coming over and taking a look!

Pet Advantage in South Burlington is great! For closer to home, I like Critters N Things in Morrisville!

Two thumbs up for pet advantage. Good staff and great selection. Beats petco and petsmart down the road.

Vance's in Bucksport is great if you're in central Maine! And if you're in Houlton Jean's Serendipity is halfway decent considering the lack of other options.

I grew up in Maine - but when I was there brooks was awesome. Given I haven't been there in a while but if it is like it was when I lived there it's definitely worth checking out. Plus there was one day a week all fish were half off or bogo half

Oh, that's way far south from me, almost 2 hours Only places within a reasonable distance from here are 'co, 'smart and Vance's. Both chains are WAY above average, but Vance's still blows them out of the water with his selection of fish.
