I read your post in the Illinois forum about Chicago fish stores, but for some reasons I do not have posting privileges to the regional forums. I moved to San Francisco from Chicago about 5 years ago. I use to scour Chicago visiting every pet shop large and small when I lived there, LOL
The one in Old Town was the prettiest but as other members have posted, also one of the most expensive. The one that sticks in my mind for good fish and best prices was on North Clark Street, farther North than Wriggly, and from the yellow pages there is only one listed so this must be it.
Chicago Aquarium & Pond, 5028 N. Clark St.
If it is still the same people running it, they were more the hobbyist types willing to special order and give you good advice and prices.
I hope that helps.
P/S, feel free to post the above in your thread in the event someone else is interested.
