    Yay another northern Va'ian! Where do you shop? I go to either Marine Scene in Herndon, or to Aquatic Obsession in Manassas. Welcome to the site!

    Yeah I am a regular at Blue Ribbon Koi, Petland in Fairfax and Centreville Aquarium. I used to hit AO but their new hours in relationship to their location isnt good for me. I bought my first tank (10G) over there. Greg is awesome and really knows his stuff. I want that 1000G they have in the front. I wanna put it in my basement for a pair of rays. Guess Ill just have to settle for the 125G that Im getting for free... If your ever interested in some frags Im in Nova every day. I just sold some to a guy in Springfield and drove them to his door for free so let me know.

    Good to know! I currently only have a fowlr (except for some shrooms that hitchhiked). It's cool knowing someone on here that knows Greg LOL The staff is cool, I agree. I was so mad when they closed, but then reopened, but in a much smaller saltwater scale, and more freshwater. At least you can special order pretty much anything from them. I don't know Petland. But you should check Marine Scene sometime. Striclty saltwater, and they're awesome. I've never gotten a sick fish from them. They also offer discounts if you're a WAMAS member.

    Yeah Petland in Fairfax does the same discount. I need to become a member... Ill def check out Marine Scene though. I am always on the lookout for good LFS. As well I frequent Winchester Pet & Aquarium and Noah's Ark Pet Center in Front Royal. No huge but decent selection at both. I have had excellent luck with Blue Ribbon and their livestock. Centreville you really need to watch or ask when the livestock arrived. I have had two separate occasions where I found out later on that the livestock they sold me had arrived and been acclimated earlier that day. Wish they wouldnt sell like that...

    I guess the pic is deceiving as that little guy is only like an inch and half maybe two inches. He has some time before he needs more space. ErinC - :glares back: ;)
