I have the same issue. They breed like crazy, but then die before they get very big. I have tons of little baby ones everywhere though. Gonna be a nice treat for my Dwarf Puffer soon!

I'm really wanting a piece that branches, but I couldn't find one there that I really wanted and that wasn't screwed to a piece of slate. They had shelves full of some really good pieces though that could be put together to make a nice looking arrangement. They were super cheap too, which was sort of strange. One of the employees told me they had just received a huge shipment, so they were on sale. I picked up a few nice looking angels in the process. They are doing great so far. Their fish looked really good. I was impressed. I have family in Waxhaw, so I'm up that way quite a bit, but I've only been in there once before. Any other good fish shops in the area?

Sorry to say that Fintastic is the only local fish store I know so far...they have nice fish and plants but a little expensive though
