Start buying online. I've had less trouble having things shipped to my door then picking stuff up locally to be honest.

Too bad the Petswarehouse (Carle Place I assume) doesn't do it for you, that's where I prefer to go .. decent stock and fair prices on some things.

If you haven't already ... there's Parrots of the World in Rockville Centre and Total Aquariums in Lynbrook. Both are on Sunrise HWY on the RHS if your driving East.

I'm not familiar with planted tanks, but from what I do know about nitrates and plants I will have to question the 20-40 nitrate reading...?

Seems rather high for a system that is built to reduce nitrates naturally...
