I'm in North Palm Beach County...

Have any of you ever visited The Planted Aquarium Store in Oakland Park before?? Coolest store ever. I just took the hour long drive and visited there yesterday. Completely freshwater! They have all sorts of nano fish, shrimps, rare fish, plants, CO2 stuff, ferts, you name it! Was so excited about it, I thought I'd share with everyone lol. Worth the trip if you're near the Lauderdale area.

Well I live near Fort Lauderdale but originally from the Mississippi Gulf Coast. So I'm as Southern as they come. But I agree it definitely doesn't seem you are in the South down here.

And never been to that store, but just discovered it on a Google search. Definitely plan on a visit soon.

It's funny ... There's a show called The States and the episode that featured FL specifically mentioned how Northern FL was more southern and Southern FL was more northern (more NE retirees) Apparently the Orlando area seems to be the dividing line.

Nope no salt fish or inverts... But they do have a lot of tanks and products and stuff for sale. Lots of nano tanks available as well, and things like rimless tanks that pet stores don't usually sell.

In Tampa. Not too much to choose from fish-wise that's close. Marine Warehouse has the most selection in Tampa but I've noticed every once in a while they get lazy and get some ich in fw.
Other than that there are a few smaller places but they don't have much.

I hear there's a place somewhere in south Tampa off of Henderson somewhere? I've gotten a few fish and supplies from Coral Reef on Armenia and Waters for cheap too.

I've been to all the places in Tampa. Most are sw. Coral Reef has a small fw selection but mostly sw.
Hoping to make it to Brandon to see the places out there
