Good stores in Georgia

I live in Acworth, Georgia and I was wondering if anyone knows any good stores for freshwater plants and different types of freshwater fish, shrimp and snails. I have Petsmart near me but they always have the same stock and I never find any good plants at all for me. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!!!

Petsmart has Amazon sword. It's another great plant to start with. They grow very nicely

I know this is a couple of days late, sorry.

I live in Marietta, so not too far from you! Local shops around here are Creation Reef (Woodstock), Optimum Aquarium (Kennesaw), Atlantis (Marietta), and Marine Reef (Marietta).

All of them carry plants. I would say to check Creation first. They have a lot more options and tend to always have stuff in stock. They are exit 7 off of 575.

In the Atlanta area, it may be worth it to check out the local FW club (AAAA Atlanta Area Aquarium Association). www.atlantaaquarium.com.

We do monthly speaker meetings and mini-auctions with two HUGE auctions a year in March & Sept along with members always trimming and offering plants, sometimes for free. There are always fish and plants that you will not find at even the best LFSs.

My wife is originally from Marietta so we are down there all the time. I love going to optimum whenever I'm down there. The guys are really cool to talk with!

Oh, I didn't even know there is a freshwater association in Atlanta! I will definitely check this out.

It's well worth it I promise! It was confusing to find but it's really close to town center mall!
