SE suburbs of the Twin Cities?

I know I am being pretty specific, but anybody from the SE part of the Twin City area? I am thinking Eagan, Apple Valley, Farmington, Rosemount, Burnsville... probably Savage and maybe Shakopee. Basically south of the river

I wanted to talk to somebody about the water actually. Being so very hard with such a high pH, wanted to talk to someone else with what fish you keep, what you have had the best luck keeping, do you treat the water etc....

Hope to find someone else out there in the area that keeps fish with a bit more experience than I have

I'm in the NW burbs. I do not treat my water, but I only keep Koi and goldfish. The hard water does help plants grow, if you were thinking planted.

Terre Quatics in champlin, 169 & west river road. Check them out. They only have fresh water,but they always have a great selection. And you can see a lot of huge fish there also. They even sell used items like tanks and parts. They will buy fish too if you have one that out grew your tank. Teresa is great!

If you go you will be greated by Pavlov. They have huge turtles also, one of them walks around the shop. He actually loves his butt scratched. If you have kids they will love the store. There are also snakes and lizards. Pretty cool!
