Better results, after moving on from Aquarium Showroom, with Bangkok Aquarium on Bascom, and Dolphin Pet Village on Campbell Ave. Bad advice wastes $$$ and kills fish. I'd rather stick with those who know freshwater tanks.

Not everyone can be all things to all people. They have saved me a small fortune and always take the time to explain things to me. Plus I LOVE the beautiful sweetheart of a mastif he brings in most days.

I think I will check out the two you list as well. I never put all my eggs in one basket but I do usually keep a primary, secondary list.

I'm in San Ramon-- SF East Bay

I normally go to Aquarium Concepts. Ken will match any equipment pricing you can find on the internet, excluding Ebay. For corals, a guy told me about Aquatic Gallery in Milpitas. They have a sweet selection of corals, and great prices on clams. They have a wide variety of frags that are 4 for $40.

I am in San Francisco, too. If anyone is looking or a resource for freshwater fish and plants.....try Ocean Aquarium. I LOVE that place!
Also Pet Central on broadway for eqiupment and foods...not so much for fish.

Ive been meaning to go to Pet central! i Keep hearing good things about it. Ocean Aquarium is a little too cramped for my taste.

I'm in Roseville!! Haven't made it down to the Sac fish stores. I used to go to petland but they shut it down cuz if the puppy mills but they had a nice aquarium set up. Now I just go to petsmart. Stay away from the petco in rocklin. Everything I've bought there died within a day. Plants, fish and if the gravel could die it would be dead to!!
