I visit SPEEDY over at LS
in Park Ridge every chance I get. He's the giant puffer in the pond where you walk in. I always give them a donation for food for SPEEDY. They recently downsized a bit. They closed the room with the new aquariums, moved the plants to a tank with snails (The girl thought, no snails, but when I QT'd the plants, snails showed up in the vases; shellfish/mollusk allergy here).
I've seen tanks with shrimp, but I think they were the red ones and the clear ones.
I haven't been to the LFS
in Schamburg, but would love to go.
