I have to say I've had good success and service from the PetSmart on Coleman in San Jose. Usually only go to those kinds of places for mass quantities of stuff for cheap, but I always have to peruse the fishies, which at this location are well-kept and generally appear healthy. Pretty good knowledge from their aquatic dept. staff.

And Lenny and Squiggy are doing just fine, thank you. Red-Belly Pacus, started about half-dollar size less than two months ago, now about 11 and 12cm. Get along quite well with the rest of the community.

Yeah the people at the petsmart where im at are pretty good but they all seem like their new to the hobbie. The facilities are really good. Ive not had any of my fish die from there, only from petco. Amazing..haha

I'm in Pinole (east bay) but I cover a very large area on job. Have you tried Exotic Aquarium in Sacramento? They have a large store with extensive fresh and salt water sections.

Here's a site I use Aquarium Store Finder - Map but I recommend calling any first as some stores may be closed down.

Silicon Valley Aquarium Society
We are now meeting at the Round Table Pizza at

I've never been to a meeting but I got stuck on there mailing list. Seems like a great club but it's too far away for me.
