If the owner of the LFS that is a plant fan like the rest of us is willing, perhaps that location would be great to setup a DIY CO2 "how to" session. I'm sure if they had the supplies on-hand at a low cost, then the general public might want to check it out as well.

That would be simple enough. Would also be cool to have people bring in samples of DIY diffusers/reactors.

Another topic of interest is retrofitting eclipse hoods. He just did a retrofit of an eclipse 3 in the store so a demo of that might be of interest to those who haven't already gone the AH route.

Glad to hear this store may be interested. I'm planning on checking this place out this week.

I didnt know they have this customer loyalty program where you get a little card bring it everytime and you get 5% back of your original purchase and it works like cash.

Yeah he gave me one of those cards last time. I only spent like ten bucks to on some tiger shrimp. Nice guy. I have 50 cents whooopeee.

FWIW, i stopped by there to pick up some basic supplies (much prefer to shop at locals store than.. oh.. PETCO-LAND).
The guy there was great (i forgot to get his name), answered all my silly questions, didn't mind that my girlie and I were basically just wandering around for 20 minutes staring at fish and plants, offered to test my water, and gave me some plant suggestions... basically did EVERYTHING that I would ever expect an LFS to do.
Color me impressed and I'll be back often.

I guess I am going to have to make a stop on by there sometime :)

Ok, my turn... I stopped in there last Sunday. Great store. Lots of plants, though not much for supplies. Talked with Kirt for a while - really nice guy.

I picked up an ozelot sword, a nice piece of driftwood, and a few false rosy tetras while I was there. This place will definately be on my list of "good" stores to visit even though they're not particularly close to home for me.

I also emailed Kirt a link to this board and SCAPE - I didn't recieve a reply email from him but we'll have to see if he turned up here.

Went there yesterday saturday they had Crystal red shrimp in along with bee shrimp. Heads up here also some really cool things that I haven't seen before. A lot of Apistogramma spieces along with some other fish that aren't very common in the hobby.
