Well for local pet shops there are a couple, paradise pet center in stratford across from the lindenwold speedline station on the white horse pike, he seems to be knowledgeable there. I got some LR
from him it's not to bad, he moslyl has tonga, i also get some supplies from JB tropical fish on the black horse pike in williamstown, and zoos pet center. I haven't found nirvana for a petshop. Each one seems to have it's strenghts and weaknesses as to advice. Like at paaidise was asking about a deal for live rubble for my wet/dry and he leans toward leaving them bioballs in there... I lean toward live rubble..but I like how informative he is and, he believes in letting the tank cycle...he doesn't stock alot of stuff but can order it for you. I got my coralife pc
from him. JB, he doesn't recommend a DSB
doesn't believe in it.
I ask questions, listen and do research and then decide which way i wanna go with things. I think we all have our ideal setup based on our own research. It truly is an expensive hobby (think i have put about $1200 into my SW
setup so far), basically all i can say is research research research, plus it is nice to go to a local fish store and actually talk to a human from time to time <grin>. I have talked to my FW
fish for 2 years now and they haven't said a word.
- for those not from around these parts, the white horse and black horse pikes are named after the old stage coach runs from philly to atlantic city just a bit of non fish info to file away)
