If anyone is looking for a lot of Java Fern, go to Gary's. Each picture below is what $2 will buy you. The first picture is ONE plant, stopped counting at 30 leaves maybe 1/2 way through. The 2nd picture is maybe 1/3 of what I got with that handful. Healthy plants.

just visited dave's last night, really big selection of the less common fish, like lungfish, BIG arowanna, big severums..., alot of fish neither pet supplies plus, petsmart, or petco carries (for you toledoans). almost all fish looked healthy, but some were in tanks way to small, like a gigantic white arowanna in a 50gal, as well as a lung fish, and other fish i cant remember off the top of my head. alot of big fish were in a 15g tank too

dave's is actually a house converted into a petstore, they have good prices, especially if you print off some ads from online. i didnt agree with how they kept some animals (they also have overpriced puppies, which should of had a mat or something to lay on) but the prices are decent, and the people are friendly

Gary's fish are top notch. Haven't lost one fish I've purchased from him.
just curious what all have you purchased from garys? meant to get the java fern fri but was kinda rushed, i'll try to stop by again.

I've bought Gold Pristela Tetras and Neons from Garys. All are alive and well.

Dave's really isn't that bad of a store if you are looking for more exotic fish. The tiny tanks and huge fish aren't that great of an idea. I've only been there once and that was about six months ago. May stop by again some day.

Anyone been to Jake's in Findlay yet? I'm stopping by tomorrow on my way back to my parents just to see what it's like.

Dang it, no wonder I couldn't find it on Yahoo! maps. JACK not Jake......I swear for being 21 my hearing is pathetic. Dad told me they stopped by and it wasn't that great. Kind of "average".
