Yay i found a great local fish store
 
I have to say this. My mom and i took a mini road trip to a fish store around a mile away. It wasnt a store, it was like a public aquarium. It was HUGE!!!. THere was around 3 ponds, one feeder goldfish pond, it was about 30 gallon pond (Even the feeder goldfish seemed happy to be there) a turtle pond around 150 gallons and a SHARK pond that was about 600 gallons. The fish they sold there had a gigantic variety. There were about 7-8 20-40 gallon tanks that had only coral and/or anemone. Then there was about a 75 gallon hex that contained 6 clown loaches and 4 discus. THEN there was about 40 15-29 gallon freshwater tanks selling fish. And about 15 salt water fish and invertebre tanks. Not to mention a well priced variety of tanks and equipment. Im glad i found this place and im sure i'll come here again. By the way most of the tanks here are acrylic

well thats great to hear. i know how happy you can be when you find a LFS, but make sure everything is nice and healthy brfore you buy it. Just because they look nice doesnt mean they keep thier fish nice!

lol those fish seemed like they loved it there. There were no dead fish at all and almost all fish had full coloration and ouspread fins. THey also sold good feeders. There were live bloodworms, ghost shrimp, feeder guppies, white cloud minnows, feeder goldfish, rotifiers and a couple more
