Hello fellow MDers it sucks when good lfs have to close. I've only had the opportunity to go there a couple times(Almost 2 hrs away) but it was a good setup. I usually go to H.O.T. in glen burnie. probably the last lfs with good selection of freshwater around in this state.

I went to afishionados It used to be on Philadelphia road. Apparantly I moved 9 mo ago to new location on kenwood ave near Rosedale library.

Not much selection today But they said come back next weds/thurs when they get more. Prices possibly a buvk or two cheaper than other stores. The place stinks of reptiles:rodents. Would revisit but only if in the area.

I was eyeing a pearl gourami. My other choices were ottos or angelfish . But they didn't have those. Accessory collection narrow but fair prices

Tom's Tropicals blues

so I'm becoming somewhat dissatisfied with Tom's. I want so much to patronize this LFS, but they have a lot of flaws--

i saw another tank with dead fish

they are more $$$ that the megamart pet stores

they don't know anything about plants (even Tom) He sold me Dracena compacta which is actually a terrestrial plant. He also told me a plant was Cardamine, but it doesn't look like it.

the teenager who worked there charged me double. of course, the receipts are not itemized. i will complain and see what they say.

the place stinks


the only plus is they do have some interesting fish and it is local with long hours. some of the older ladies do give some ok fish advice.

Lol. My wife won't either. I thought about writing that too

Of course she's also the first to complain about the fish I get.
