I refuse to buy from Big Al's. I saw the Apistos last week and drooled for a millisecond.

Last time I was in, it was for algea wafers since I was in the South already. I scooped up a bunch of wafers and then Trevor and I went to look at the fish. I was disgusted, put the algea wafers back and left.

My last trip to Pisces I got some pennyworth and 4 baby cardinals..

If I make the trip all they way down to tanks I often do a Stop at Big Al's but the last time I was there the display FW was covered in fungus and ICK... Kinda made it hard to look around after that....

Mooooose

Today I hit PetLand Shawnessy...some nice uncommon plecos there, but all a bit pricey (course they do have that 25% off Tuesdays)...not much else to report from them. Dropped by Riverfront (hey, its 4 minutes from my house, its hard not to)....bought a fist-sized hermit crab for my daughter...Wayne has a whack of German rams in, and a fresh batch of green-spotted puffers...not much else new today.
