Thanks. I will check out jim's for sure and let you know what I think. I've got some time while I tackle my 55g reseal project that I hope I'm patient enough for!

Jim's is good but over priced by alot. Have a heart in Racine is good they have 35% off their fresh water right now. I picked up the same fish that another place had for $80 for $21 at have a heart. I also found a couple stores in Milwaukee one is called happy land and there's hoffers and aquarium adventure too in Milwaukee. I over heard too that's there's some sort of new fish store out by where target is but I haven't been able to find it so if anyone knows let me know.

In Milwaukee there is Best Fish on Martin Luther King or Old World Third a bit north of Mckinnley. I haven't bought any fish from there. But their prices seem ok and the fish seem healthy and the tanks clean.
Keep us updated on the reseal job you are doing on that 55 gallon. I don't know why but resealing a tank interests me.

HA! I'm not really sure why I'm so pumped about it either. Going to start scraping and cleaning tomorrow night. I will keep posting. Thanks for the info guys.

I went to Jim's today. Pretty crazy place. It's in a basement and real cramped. Almost to the point of being messy. Doesn't matter though. Their stock looked healthy, and I didn't see a dead fish in ANY of the tanks (and there were a lot). I picked up a piece of mopani driftwood and four bundles of java moss. It was expensive, but I at least got the sense they knew what they were doing. The driftwood was almost twice the price of online, but I didn't have to ship it.

I almost had to threaten divorce to get my wife and kids out of there. All in all I'd give it a thumbs up.
