Congressional Aquariums...

So I got a flier in the mail for a LFS that I had sworn had gone out of business a while ago... Congressional Aquarium in Rockville, MD on 355... Rockville Pike at that point I think.

Anyone been there recently? How is it? Good livestock? Is it worth slogging through the hellish 24/7 traffic on Rockville Pike to get to them?

Thanks!

Well, did a quick google search... they still look like they are open according to their webpage... and they also boast the "cleanest tanks in town!!" heh...

Maybe I'll have to drop by to see what they are all about.

I have been there a few times. The tanks are clean, the selection is fairly good BUT they sell dyed fish which is too bad. That said, I have purchased some fish from there and they have all been healthy, no problems.
