LFS Directory?

Is there an online directory of some sort that'll show you the names and addresses of local fish stores? I used to patronize an inexplicably huge family owned fish store that sold all kinds of fish, all sizes, ages, and species, and the people and owner were actually knowledgeable of the different species and their care. I think that some of those fish weren't even legal, they had so many it was crazy. But they're undergoing relocation and are currently closed. It's driving me crazy to have to go to Petsmart or Petco. The fish there look terribly unhealthy and the employees....yeah. If it wasn't for AquariumAdvice I'd have a Pacu in a Betta bowl.

So I'm praying that there are other stores around and I want to find them.

Hey TGB. Dunno what part of the Metro Area you are in, but here is a list of some of the local stores in MD and WV. For the most part, all of the regional forums have their own threads on local stores.
