Hi

I have just joined this forum. I live in Astoria, Queens and work in the City, Manhattan. My SW tank is only two months old, so I'm new to this.

Hello from Peekskill

I just want to say hi to all to local folks! I live in Peekskill which is just the northern part of Westchester, 1 hour drive north of the city (Taconic Pkwy). Seems like I'm the most northern member here.

My fave LFS is one I just found closer to the city in Nanuet (Route 59), called Pet Place II. There's also Animal Kingdom in Mohegan Lake closer to me... but I don't expect anyone here to know where Mohegan Lake is

Welcome to NY/NJ! Although I'm a city dweller, Nanuet is very convenient for me (Tappan Zee). I've never heard of Mohegan Lake but if it's anywhere near Nanuet, I could see myself making the trip.

Thanks Lori for the invite to the Museum. My kids love going... we're just tied up with other family plans. We also like to frequent the Norwalk Aquarium in CT.... prolly just over 1 hr drive on 95 north.... great place for getting the kids to learning more!

Jchillin... here's the info on Pets Place II in Nanuet:
120 E Route 59
Nanuet, NY 10954-2910
Phone: (845) 623-5565

BTW, this is what really hooked me into using them despite driving 30 minutes south:
Has anyone found a LFS that quarantines their fish before selling them?? They DO!! I happened to notice how many of their bottom tanks on display had "NFS" written on 'em with a marker... so I asked about it and they told me about their 1 week quarantine!! WOW. Should I not be so amazed? This is the 1st fishstore I've found doing this. They claim the amount of dead fish their customers come back to them with has dropped something like 30% or so.

Queens.....near Kennedy Airport. I work in Western Nassau, on the North Shore. There are a decent number of LFS in my neck of the woods.
