Thanks texgal for clearing that up I'm not by any means a forum l33t. db8! This is a great forum to belong to in my opinion. Everyone is really helpful and not much to worry about in the flame department. Welcome again! Take care

Travis - I saw this thread and wondered what is 808? I now know it means Hawaii. I still don't know why but at least I know what!

Aloha! Former 808er transplanted to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Got into planted tanks about 15 years ago working at the LPS at Ala Moana. After a decade's hiatus, I AM BACK. Just a 10 gallon right now with RCS, amano shrimp and spawning otocinclus'. Really cool to see this space for kama'aina (though I'm not sure I'd be considered one anymore). Look forward to chatting with you all. Hey, I heard about the Aquascaping place in Aiea. How is it? I am planning a possible trip out there this summer and I'm wondering if it's worth the trip. Talk to you all later.

Yeah since you moved they've done some major renovations to Alamoana including getting rid of the pet store that was next to the crackseed store. The crackseed store is still there but, I guess the Pet store couldn't compete Shirokiya is also like a third the size and no Iida's. Aquascapes is the store I believe you are talking about. They have some awesome setups there and everything you could possibly need in a planted tank setup. The cost of operating a LFS store in their location is probably high as such their prices are a little high. However they are VERY helpful friendly and has been my experience will give discounts to loyal shoppers. Great People there and the owner is always there I believe he really stands behind the job he does. Anyway welcome mayanjungledog hope you enjoy your visit back either way!

None that "specializes" but, there are some places that might help you on your quest. Oahu fire in the Pearl city industrial area great place to get your co2 tank filled only cost me $10 for a 5lb tank! Kalihi Pets has some great plants and fish and is where Jojo from Aquascapes originally worked. Coral reef may have some things you might need Anacharis was 3 stems for $1 when I went. I have also heard really good things about Kahala Pets discount but, haven't gone there myself yet. Lastly, ask here people are real helpful and you may find a good deal. Hope this helps.

I remember Kalihi Pets. I used to live in Kalihi. Are they still by that bowling alley?
