By far best shop in MD, it's where I go as well.

HOT, is located in glenburnie. It's about a 20min drive for me and a 1/4 tank of gas but well worth it. They are Un rivaled in cichlid knowledge.

About a 20 minute ride for me too, in parkville. Great sellection. They are my #2 only because of distance. Exotic aquatics is almost walking distance from me.

Any of you other MD peeps cichlid lovers? The CCA meets af JFK High School every month, check out www.capitalcichlids.org if you're interested. Great place to mix and mingle with other fish folks and find used tanks/equipment and fish (not just cichlids either) often bred/raised locally at great prices.

Wow small world. We were just there after work yesterday picking up some Ottos, our heater that broke, and some black worms. everyone there is helpful for the most part. Some days you go in there and theyre all arguing and fighting, and some arent very friendly, happy looking campers. But other days they are happy, smiling and helpful.

I agree about Toms. We have gotten two of our tanks from there. One or two of the ladies we like (wish I could remember their names) We still get some fish from there but now for the most part we use Exotics for most things
