Yep, sure did. It's a nice store. I didn't even get past the sw stuff. lol I came home with a few new critters. The first thing that hit me when I went in is how clean the store was. Gotta love that. And their workers were all very nice. Their livestock prices were higher than I'd have expected for a "warehouse" store but I didn't find them overly inflated either. Pretty average to what I'm used to paying. And the fish/inverts (what I saw) appeared very healthy. It was a nice trip.

I agree with the cleanliness of it - very impressive.

I just wish it weren't so far away.

I asked the owner if he would consider moving to this side of the river. He said they had thought about it when they getting started, but they didn't want to have to move to keep the commute down.

Scales was pretty awesome! I agree they had some great livestock, and helpful people. No complaints.

But geesus, what a drive to get there! I never thought those roads would end! Thank god I was following Cindy, or I'd still be there, looking for my way back!

It's in Glenn Burnie, MD. I believe they are a sort of SW/FW rescue and they are also a LFS.
DT, No we only went to Roozen's, we didn't have time to go anywhere else, had a last minute B-Day party/going away party.

SeaSaves is an interesting store. It's very small but thier set up is neat. It is strickly a SW store, or was when I was there.

How did you like Roozens Scott? You'd never think there was a SW store there would you? lol I think it's a good idea but, they need to rethink the whole lighting thing.

Yeah, they had a huge selection (at least by my standards, lol). We walked in and saw the big tank in the next room, I thought that was all there was to it! LOL! I don't understand how they keep some of those fish in the tiny tank dividers. Over all, it was pretty neat, I like the eels and baracuda. They also had a hugh puffer, if folks could see how big some get, it would keep them from wanting to put one in a 20-50G tank.

If I remember right, they had a large tank with four or five hawaiian morays when I was there. They were incredible.
